Looking for opinions on this M1 Carbine Web Sling.  Is it a Reproduction or Original?  It is almost in perfect condition, not marked, but on the hardware there is a W or M in an oval.  Very tiny bit of slight rust on hardware.  Many thanks!

Could you post a pic of the back of the "pull the dot" snap?  

 

Hello John,

I just realized it does not have a snap on the strap.  So it is not a M1 carbine sling.  So what is it?

Haha, I should have caught that from the pics.  

 

FWIW also I checked a WW2 period carbine sling with a similar buckle and it does not have any marking on the buckle.  

 

Good luck on id'ing and authenticating this.

Thanks John for the help.  Yes I will need to find out what this strap is for?  Hoping someone at this forum could help?
