Norm. it's flax thread that's been on it since 1918 or earlier. That's what was used for swabbing bores.

Really nice condition 1914 Erfurts, most were used pretty hard and show it.

Nice rig for sure.

I'm still looking for one of those Crown/G(corrected) stocks! I'm up to nine stocks, but all are Crown/S.
