    My local surplus store was having a sale and I got this for a good price largely because they did not know what it was.

    When I got it, there were "leather" tabs that looked like they were never buttoned into the rivets.

    Interestingly there is a "Made in Germany" sticker on one of the blue-grey strap holders:

    I've been told by "Enthusiast82002" at red-alliance that the blue-grey strap is an East German AKM sling.
    There is also what appears to be 2-sided velcro wrap:

    So is this real or repro?  I'm starting with the assumption that it's a repro for now.

    back in the day in the 80s and early 90s that was one of the hardest bits of soviet kit to get. I was lucky I had a finnish friend living in moscow who got one for me.

    sorry sold mine along with the rest of my sov/afghan war stuff long ago. BTW, they also had a small backpack of same construction as the chest rig. Here's a bit of trivia, this is a record album, a four volume set recorded by afghan war vets right after soviets left afghan. Some great music. The airborne team on the front has the combat vest which has a chest rig on it.
