There are several types of "Carbine" slings out there today that are commonly found. A CHICOM knock off, Korean Army surplus, and real US GI issue. The two most common materials are canvas web duck, and nylon. Since your asking how to mount the sling I'm going to assume that you have the thicker web sling. While the sling is going to be very tight in the butt stock, it can be done.
1. Place the tab with the " Lift-the Dot" at the muzzle end of the stock.
2. Feed the tab through the opening from one side of the stock out to the other side.( oil bottle goes into the smaller cut slot )
3. Loop the sling around your oiler and by using a "wiggling" motion pull with alot of force and walk the oiler/sling into the milled notch of the butt stock. A dry lube such as Elmers Slide-All will help( Ace Hardware)
4.The muzzle end is mounted so that the tab is facing outward*. Adjust the loop using the buckle ( if yours has one )* Some folks mount it with the tab facing inward. It depends who made your sling.
Nylon slings are easy to mount. The original thickness GI web slings are easy to mount also.

Here's a couple of photo's:

Roger that! I found the web site you referred me to just about the time I received notice that I had a reply to my inquiry. This technology is simply amazing--especially for an old country boy that didn't even have a telephone untile he was grown. lol

Anyway, thanks a bunch for your time.

Aunt Bee, The lift dot is not at the butt. It is at the muzzle end.
