    The "right" sling?

    I see that the first model 444 rifles came with a sling. How can I identify the "right" one? And what sling swivels were used? Thanks.

    I use quick detach uncle mikes swivels with a leather sling of choice. I like the leather ones that are wider on the point of the shoulder and narrow on the ends.

    It's the same sling that was offered with 336s and other models.
    Adjustable leather sling. 'Saddle' color. Stamped with "Marlin" and the horse and rider. Older versions have a brass-plated steel buckle. Whether or not the 444s would have had the "older" version, I do not know. I can't find an ad that's high enough quality.

    Search the interwebs for "original Marlin factory sling" for pictures of the slings.

    He's looking for an original from the '60s, not currently manufactured alternatives.
