Is this a M1 Carbine sling from WWII?

Thanks,
Marcel

Dark shade OD is more commonly associated with late/post WW2 gear but is not incorrect for pre-45- the tab at the end is also "full" If I remember most WW2 slings its more of a "c" shape just around the edges- I would guess this is post war/Korean war era

I bought an almost identical one two weeks ago. I dont get warm with it. The material is to lightweight, not like the one I sold some years ago. Is there a stamp on the metal snap?
