I went to the sling install and info page but the link is dead on the site. Any other place to look for the correct way to install the Kerr replica sling on a M1?

Once you discover the secret, its so simple-like quantum physics.

unsure.gif I guess I'm missing something. The link on the actual installation instructions was dead when I checked out your "installation" link. My Kahr '27A1 has a sling swivel only on the butt. Is that just pure ornamentation, is there actually a way to rig a sling with only a single swivel, or were we expected to purchase and install another swivel somewhere on the foregrip???

You'll need a forward swivel for proper installation of your replica sling.

In the top diagram that Sgt so thoughtfully provided, the left side is the forward grip, but in the bottom figure, reverse things: the right side is now the forward grip. Clear as mud, right??? At least up is still up in both figures!

Thanks. That's an interesting link. What a wonderful world it is when there is a whole website actually dedicated to rifle slings! It looks like there was no textbook solution as to where to mount the forward swivel on vertical grip Thompsons. I wonder what option, if any, was originally offered by the manufacturer?

There was a sling swivel that attached to the barrel. You can see one in the movie "Sahara" with Bogie..
