Pretty sure the one with loops at the ends isn't US, unsure on other one.
 Thanks!

The bottom sling is Russian/Soviet, fits the Mosin Nagant rifle.

First one looks like an M16 sling, 2nd one looks similar to AK slings.

A few searches and yep, Mosin Nagant!

Other one matches pics I found of M1 Garand slings.  I have two, one shown has a smoother finish so assuming post WWII.
Other one not shown is canvass.

Yeah I think it is made of nylon for the M16

Gotcha!  So is this one in canvass for an M1 Garand or an earlier M16 sling?

From what I've read canvas one was first used with the M1 Garand but was also used on the M16 before the nylon one.

The nylon sling was also used on the M14 rifle. Sometimes called a "seat belt sling".
