Swiss Cavalry Stgw57 Leather Scabbard - 1962
Swiss Cavalry leather scabbard for the Stgw57 (Sturmgewehr 57 / SIG SG 510). This scabbard was made specifically for the Stgw.57 and was not a retrofit from an existing K11/K31 leather cavalry scabbard which was commonly performed. It can also be used to retain the K11 and K31 carbine. Scabbard was previously issued. These were in use by the Swiss Cavalry (Dragoons) until the early 1970s when the Cavalry was abolished.
Metal scabbard tip protector, standard on purpose-made Stgw57 scabbards. Body of the scabbard has cracking in the leather along the side as well as mild cracking on the rear side. Stitching along the body is beginning to open up. Stitching along the mouth of the scabbard is in good condition.
Sattler's stamp is difficult to read, but manufacturing year of 1962 is visible.
