    Gray/green leather slings

    Sorry in advance if this is the wrong forum. I was browsing ePay and picked up for $15 shipped a gray/green Romanian sling as it looked fairly unusual compared to the typical brown ones I see. I plan to put it on my WASR-10 however that is beside the point. I was wondering if anyone knew the significance of the different colored leather? I will post pictures once it comes in and gets installed on my AK. Thanks in advance!
    There is no dark side in the moon, really! Matter of fact, it's all dark!

    I have a couple, plus some other gray leather Romanian items. I think they were Navy issue but not sure.
    Constantly studying spots welds, mag well dimple shapes, center support rivet heads and selector markings for the last 12 years...

    BTW - Keep your BFH away from my AK!

    WTB Late East German 7.62 top cover and gas tube numbered 687.

    Grey has to be the police color.
    I think black was used by the Navy.

    I can find out for sure from trusted sources, although I don't know anyone from the former Navy force. Mostly infantry, but they probably know that the other branches used to have back then.
