    Another unidentified (at least to me) piece of parachute equipment. Perhaps for a bag or a static line.

    This is a Spectre HST (High Speed Transition) sling with an extra magazine pouch for the buttstock of the M-4/M-16 rifle.

    This is a Blackhawk Omega VI Elite Dropleg holster that was used by a Marine while deployed to Iraq/Afghanistan. This would have been used in the 2004 to 2005 time period. Also came with a Vega Holster retention laynard and a Spec-Ops brand trouser belt.

    Forgot to add that I also was able to pick up a WW2 cot/stretcher and a set of tan MICH/ACH tan retention straps for goggles.

    Thanks for the comments. I picked all that up for $30. I really like the Spectre sling and the Blackhawk holster.

    Arch, the second item is a lowering line for a rucksack or container, the 1" tubular nylon
    accordion folds in the flapped section and gets velcroed shut. The QR snap buckle attaches
    to a d-ring on the paratrooper's harness.
