I don't recall seeing any M1 web slings that were marked as made by Boyt, but it certainly possible as Boyt made both web gear and the M1907 leather rifle slings, so it was certainly within their capability.

 

I suspect that you would get a better response to your question if you posted it in the Firearms section, as the slings probably get more attention from the gun guys.

think.gif These Markings must be Fake; as this carbine sling is Not Constructed like those made in WWII; which had "U" shaped metal end pieces.

 

Looking at it more closely, and noting the increased distance between the lift-the-dot fasteners compared to a carbine sling, this is probably actually a sling for the Reising submachine gun. In that case the end pieces are correct.
