The sling looks like 03A3 but the screws don't match what this was originally on?

Who knows since they are 1 1/4" swivels that were not used on any US standard arm that I know of. They may have been original to a sporting rifle, or they may have been after market. The original WW1 sling might cause confusion. Original M1907 slings were plentiful, cheap, and popular at one time, but the sling doesn't mean that the swivels are military originals.

That's what I thought. Thanks for your help. I will lose the swivels and give the sling a proper home on one of my 03A4's.
