"This sling is very clean and built well. No signs of rust and minor wear on sling metal surfaces. But that is fine because it give it an authentic look. Oiler in great shape with no rust.A great sling for a low price!"

"I ordered 2 and would not get either one to fit through the oiler well on my Inland. The sling material seems to be to thick!Caution!"

"The sling was in good condition when it arrived, no rust or any other problems. However, it does not properly fit onto my 1960 production M1 Carbine. It'll work, but I'll need to widen the hole in the stock a bit. However, with a little work, it'll be great. All in all, good purchase"

"Received sling & oiler in excellent condition but same problem as some--it wouldn't fit into original military stock. Tried gunny's suggestion but the tip was to big to pass between oiler and stock and material was too thick to make the loop. MY REMEDY was to hammer the material flat, make the outside loop and then pass the oiler in at an angle, then pull the loop in after it. It worked but the oiler is now just for looks. The sling works great but too much work to get the oiler back out especially if the material swells back out."

"guys, DO NOT widen the slot for the oiler. you'll find that the sling and oiler won't fit snugly. if there is slack on the sling the oiler will fall out. it is supposed to be snug. you need to support the oiler in the slot from underneath with your fingers so that it \"floats.\" getting the sling around the oiler will still be a snug fit, but with a little practice, you can do it with your eyes closed."

"The sling fits the rifle fine and works great. People having trouble with fitting it, try dropping the oiler in, then feeding the sling up an around it while it's already in the slot."

"Looks nice , a little greener than my others (not going on show gun) went on with no problems, oiler looks new (no stamping on oiler) over all great for the price."

"Ok, I have read every review and every website on how to install these things. This flat out will not work on my IBM. The metal on the end of the strap is CLEARLY too large. I tried installing by dropping the oiler in with one side of the strap loaded and then trying to feed the other side through, but not enough room. I dropped oiler in by itself and then tried to feed the end of the strap at all four angles, but clearly not enough room. I researched the internet on pics of the WW2 slings and the metal ends were much thinner. This is not an accurate reproduction in my opinion. I am not going to hammer out a 6 dollar sling and can't spend 10 bucks shipping this POS back to CTD. Thanks for another \"close but not there\" product. Don't waste your time with this and buy one in person with your rifle."

"pretty pleased, it fits perfect i think, you just have to know how to install it...works great and looks real, however i don't know if it is, CTD isn't very clear about what is authentic and what isn't."

"This is a very cheap made sling. It did not fit properly and the snap broke the first time I used it."

"The way I managed to get my sling threaded through was by sticking the oiler end of the sling through the stock, THEN place the oiler in, then while pulling the oiler back towards the butt, which should open the gap JUST ENOUGH to feed the sling through, wiggle it in. The material is thick, but shouldn't be so thick as to not be able to fit. It looks great and when my Bayonet arrives tomorrow, my M1 Carbine will be complete!"

"I purchased the sling and oiler last year and never bothered to read the reviews. Glad I didn't because I may not have bought it. It works GREAT. It is a bit difficult to install if you have never done it but is well worth the effort to learn. Very easy to carry weapon in a barrel down position and will come up quickly to wrap the left forearm to provide a solid support for the weapon. Thanks"

"Bought one of these sets for my Inland '43. Works great. I do not intend to use the oiler for oil so the fact that it fits the stock snugly is good for me. Easy to install. 4 bullets only as it is not vintage. The carbine looked like ti was missing something unitl I put this on it, good to go now."

"Never seen one in person before, used the picture in the CTD magazine to orient it correctly, and installed it... just like that. I read reviews and was expecting to have to do a magic trick to install it, but it's really not complex at all. Snap in front, loop through the stock, insert oiler, pull... DONE. Fit perfect, first try, my stock is a surplus GI on an early Universal, but no reason for install drama. Looks awesome! Oiler even had some oil in it!"

"I did not find this difficult to install. It did take me several minutes, but as previously posted loop one end through, push the oiler end, then push the metal tip at an angle out. The last bit is the tricky part, and it's hard to explain, but it's not as bad as it's made out to be. Most importantly, looks great on my carbine."

"Fits greattrick is when putting the oiler in is to push the material up from the stock(bottom) and down from the opening(top) then slide the oiler in at an angle. It will slide right in as the loop fills the whole space up creating a wide enough opening."

"The kit is excellent. It was a snap to install and looks great on my Auto Ordinance reproduction M1 (AO-130). The oiler comes with an o-ring installed so no worries about leaks. This is a super item as my carbine did not come with a sling at all. The sling tightens snugly around the oiler and you pull the whole thing through from the other side to lock it down, then push the snap into place and voila you're good to go."

"Item reads \"M1 carbine sling & oiler original correct WW11 & Korean War style\". The canvas of the sling is too new to be original. The oiler is used. Your description is misleading. They do not complement my original carbines"

"Sling is a decent functional repro, but the male part of the snap was severely bent over like someone had stepped on it. The ziploc baggie was undamaged as was the mailing envelope, so the damage probably happened before it was shipped. I straightened it out well enough to work more or less with pliers, but it's still mashed looking. Wasn't worth the hassle and expense of trying to return it, but it's disappointing that whoever picked and packed it was so careless as to not see such obvious damage.While I'm at it, I'll mention that CTD has never given me the unspecified \"free gift\" they promised when I signed up."

"This sling is not correct for my CMP carbines...they don't fit. The metal tab is to big to fit through the stock without prior \"adjustment\"...cut the metal tab off or smash it in a vise! Would not buy again or recommend to anyone, OR expect to \"adjust\" the sling. This repro is a poor imitation of the real thing, poor production quality. Not good for M1 carbine.I gave it a 1 bullet because there is no way to select no bullets!"

"The sling that I received was missing the top half of the snap stud. Looks like a manufacturing defect. Packaging was intact. It would not remain secure. I have other carbine slings, so I could tell it wasn't right. I installed it on my Inland '43 just for grins, since another post indicated favorable results. The sling was extremely tight in the stock. although POSSIBLE to install, the degree of tightness made the oiler fuctionally worthless. Quality must be hit and miss, judging from the other reviews. I will be returning this one."

"Good product with slight modification. As mentioned in other reviews, the tab needed to be flattened so it would fit through the slot in my Saginaw stock. I tried the other methods and the fix for me was to wrap the tip in a microfiber cloth and tap it flat with the flat end of a ball peen hammer on the bench vise. Installed by putting the sling through the front end of the slot in the stock, insert oiler from the left side, thread loose end behind the oiler (it is a snug fit) and it looks good and fits well. Filled oiler and good to go."

"Recieved my order yesterday. shipping was fast. packaging was good, and the quality was excellent. I had it installed in about ten minutes. the o-ring seal on the oiler was great. it looks great on my universal M1. its a great addition for any M1."

"These arrived in brand new condition and very quickly. The oiler is high quality and has a very nice o-ring inside to prevent leaks. The oiler lid has a metal applicator built into it, which i was not expecting and found to be a nice surprise.The sling was in perfect condition as well. it was not bent and all of the buckle pieces were there.I agree with one of the other reviews that the canvas on this sling seems too new to be original WWII, but it is in brand new condition."

"I ordered this item a while back for my CMP Inland Carbine. The quality of both the sling and the oiler is good. The metel on the sling has a tendency to begin to rust, so keep them oiled. The oiler fit the stock fine and has NEVER fallen out. Yet another great buy from Cheaper Than Dirt!"

"I have a vintage NPM Carbine with a fat pot belly stock, this sling and oiler is an inexpensive oriental reproduction, but it works. The oiler has an O-ring and holds the Mobile 1 synthetic well. The sling is OD Green and works, but the metal end will need pounded flat. Just put some 100 MPH tabe around it and pound it flat so it will fit through the stock. I also snapped the sling closed on the front mount and added taped the tail down with 100 MPH tape. It's not going anywhere. I like the sling, just place it on your over your shoulder and carry it to the range. An M1 Carbine was not designed to be carried in a fancy case to the range. This sling keeps the carbine in close contact. But it's a little difficult to get to the oiler sometimes."

"The sling came to me in excellent condition and the oiler was nice. However, this would not fit on my Underwood. I'm giving it 2 bullets because it looks good but unfortunately does not work for me. It would appear I am not alone as these slings tend to be hit or miss."

"This reproduction is a good functional replacement for a worn or missing M1 Carbine sling. But it is the later design, having the full metal tabs on the ends rather than the U-shapped tabs found on most original WW-II era slings. So the claim that it is correct for both WW-II and Korea is not fully correct. It is only correct for later WW-II slings and Korean War slings. Reproductions, as well as originals, for the early slings are available if you want your M1 Carbine to look like most WW-II M1 Carbines. If you simply want a good sling that works on an M1 Carbine, this will certainly serve you well."

"The sling and oiler themselves are great. There is a trick to installing them which should be spelled out in an instruction page with the sling when they are packaged. I pulled the metal end off my sling before I figured it out. The oiler has to be installed first, then thread the sling around it WHILE HOLDING THE OILER ALL THE WAY IN with the other hand or something you can push in the slot."

"Yes, the posts you read about it being an everloving pain to put on are correct for many (including my AutoOrdinance) M1cars. That said, once you curse and He-Man it on, it is a beauty and you never have to worry about it coming off."

"My sling and oiler did not go in at first and I didn't want to file the stock. I put the metal end of the sling in a vise and squeezed it flat (thinner) and then it fit in OK."
