    That looks to be the way that I have it rigged and how I use it.

    Yes, it appears to be correct. There was a thread on that very thing here someplace a few months back.

    The rifle in the first picture has the lower half of the sling let out all the way onto itself. This is not a classic parade "Sling Arms" position but obviously a field position. It might be set up to give the individual an easier carry or possibly for use as a hasty sling.

    Thanks Griff, thats what I was referring to. If you look close the guy on the left in the 2nd pic has his the same way. I have never noticed that method before in any pics or videos, but I am now going to keep my eye out. I figure out in the field slings were left loose to be readily shouldered, so to each his own. Thought it was interesting, and I really like the 1st pic. 1st pic is captioned Guam and the second Okinawa.

    We used to let our slings out that way to go all the way over our head and helmet in a hurry. Such as a case where you need both hands to aid the wounded.

    If it helps any, google Turner Slings, they have an excellent tutorial on how to attach and use the M1907.
