Edit: I went to the website, http://www.whatpriceglory.com to check this out. Jerry has some blurb about there having been a special model of the M1917 sling (which this is a reproduction of) made for the M1903 rifle which was shorter than the M1917 sling generally issued for use on the M1917 rifle. Horseturds. There was only one length. The swivels on the M1917 are only 2" farther apart than on the '03, not a foot. Jerry made his slings too short. He says the latest batch will be made in the "longer M1917 rifle length".
