Jungle carbine question
Does anyone know why the butt sling mount is on the right hand side of the stock and not on the left like most other rifles that have side mounted slings? Is it just a British thing, or a designer who never had to carry a rifle or does it work comfortably where it is?

Actually, there are other carbines that also put the sling attaching on the right side of the butt.
Here's an example of one from the Sweden - Milsurp Knowledge Library (click here) ....
1907 m94/14 Swedish Carbine
(Mfg by Carl Gustafs Stads Gevarsfaktori)

At least, being mounted on the right, it kept the sling bar from gouging you in the cheekbone everytime you shoulder the rifle.
With the sling attachment on the side it makes it easier (for me) to pack it muzzle down.
I was going to mention that as well, but wasn't sure if soldies ever would have carried it that way.
