    M1 Carbine Sling ?

    Can anyone PLEASE help me out with these last few Slings I found in my Storage if there Legit WW2 or Late Korean era ones ? I'm building my Last Carbine and I don't want to list anything that's questionable or fake. Thank You for Your Time.

    Web looks good to me also.
    Hard to compare the Keepers from the pictures.
    Some appear Wide, Narrow and 1 or 2 may be round.
    Are any of the middle bars on the Keepers marked inside?

    I agree. They all look ok to me too.

    I know, but can't remember it right now. I'm up too late I guess! I've got one of those and have notes on it - I'll look it up tomorrow, but it may be late in the day. Someone else will probably respond by then! Sorry. - Bob

    I believe that the D-tip slings that have the Keeper (Buckle) marked with a W in a circle are reproduction carbine slings. Can't seem to find where I read this, but I own a few of them that I have always considered to be reproduction.

    I seem to recall that the info on those "repro" slings was in a Carbine Club news letter. I could be wrong.
