The carbine I bought last year has buckles on both ends of the sling. All others I see have a snap on the front end. Any guesses as to what sling I have? Thanks for any input.

Maybe built as a generic, or for another weapon and just happens to fit the carbine?

It may be for a Reising sub-gun. Very similar to a carbine sling but it is longer I think. Jimb would know for sure if it is or isn't.

No, the reising sling also has a snap, but the distance between the two parts is greater than that of the carbine sling. That nylon sling is a general purpose sling that could and often was used as a carbine replacement sling. Fairly common, but not carbine specific.
