Original U.S. WWII M1 Carbine Web Sling with Keeper

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a nice used example of the web sling used on the U.S. M1 Carbine, a lightweight, easy to use, .30 caliber (7.62 mm) semi-automatic carbine that was a standard firearm for the U.S. military during World War II, the Korean War and well into the Vietnam War. 

The design is a bit unconventional, in that the rear end of the sling is not attached to a swivel, but instead is passed through a hole in the stock and held in place by the steel oiler for the carbine. The rear end of the sling is held in a loop by the steel keeper, which is often lost over time. The front end of the sling attaches to a sling swivel using the lift the dot snap to make a loop. Overall length is 49 inches long, and the sling is 1 inch wide.

This example is in good condition, but it definitely does show wear from service. It is somewhat dirty, and there is wear to the canvas web on the edges in places. The lift-the dot is functional, and the sling still has both pinched steel ends intact. The blacked brass finish on the snap is mostly intact.
