Most of the Strelets ACW & Napoleonic figures have muskets without musket slings. Does this matter to people. Personally I like musket slings as most muskets would have it. All metal 28mm figures have musket slings. It seems some manufacturers have pre-made master muskets without the sling made on the musket and the sculptor then ignores the sling. The best manufacturers out there like Zvezda always have musket slings on all their muskets.
