I purchased a LW Drilling about 20 years ago, s/n 336174, dated June 1941. It came with the metal case, manual, 2 boxes of DWM rifle ammo, 6 brushes, oil bottle, black cardboard box to hold these items and two leather slings. It is missing the test target and the cleaning rod. I have two questions: 1. Which one of the slings is correct? They are unmarked and 2. Does anyone know where can I obtain the cleaning rod? Thanks, Harry

Harry:
The sling in the upper pic appears similar to mine and seems to be corect.
My drilling also has two slings, but the second one is also a solid one and does not have the laced appearance of your other sling.
As to the cleaning rod question - you can probably use any commercial drilling cleaning rod form the same era, or have a copy of the original made - I had never seen an original LW drilling cleaning rod for sale...
Interesting to note that your set came with DWM ammo - I have RWS in mine...
Is your case grey in color or greenish sandy color?
regards.
Val

The original Rottweil shotgun shells shown in the photo from the manual were made by RWS.

Here is an original ammunition advertisement for RWS (Rheinisch-Westfalische Sprengstoff Actien Gesellshaft or Rhein Westfalen Explosives Stock Company). The company made ammunition for hunting, target shooting and national defense according to the ad copy. The advertisement ran in a 1940 issue of the magazine Der Vierjahresplan.
