I have a collection of carbines and slings. I know that the "C" ends are the WW2 slings and the "D" ends are Korea and VN. I have different named snaps that some say "Lift The Dot", others,:Klikit Pull" and others just a "." . One has the "KLIKIT PULL ,is tan and has unpainted, bright brass fittings. Is there some reference on the different makers for these? Thanks, BB

look at the web under the snap. Schlegel manufacturing company marked some of the slings with SM Co. and sometimes the year of manufacture. A lot of slings were unmarked. Klikit Pull and Star Pull snaps were made by Rau Fastener Co. in Providence Rhode Island. Fastener with just a "dot" were made by United Carr Fastener. Some pics of your Slings would be helpfull.

Identification of Carbine Slings ist hard work:-) I'm not sure if the webbing is correct. The "male" portion of the fastener is not USGI, or was repaired, or replaced. The "female" portion looks okay for Rau fastener. Please look if the back side of the fastener is marked with the company name. The buckle looks okay. Are the C tips and buckle parkerized? At first glance I would say it's repro. But I am not sure. On milsurp forum you will find some slings to compare with yours. You must be logged in to see this link. Good luck:-)

Please note the dimensions of a Carbine sling: According Craig Riesch (M1 Carbines, wartime production 6th edition): The carbine sling measured 1 inch wide and varied from 45 inches to 49 inches long when the lift-the-dot end was closed. The loop for the sling swivel was 1 inch long when snapped. The sling buckles were stamped steel in a wide figure "8" shape and measured 1.3 inches long by 1 inch wide. Buckles were Parkerized or blued steel. Some were manufacturer coded, but very few.
