Japanese Type 99 Rifle sling???

Does anyone have an online reference for Japanese rifle slings? I’ve seen reproductions for sale of a canvas sling with quick detach metal loop thing for the Type 99 Rifle. Does anyone have any knowledge on those? Thanks.

The one I had years ago had a leather sling with brass keepers.

Rubberized canvas variant

I am only familiar with the RUBBERIZED CANVAS VARIANT. My understanding is that early ones were leather but did not hold up in the tropics. The sling was a reddish brick color. Mine had this sling along with the mud guard and wire monopod..... …
