Hi, John. I can't help you with rifle slings, but lots of people here can do that. Welcome from Missouri.

Welcome John, from the South Carolina ,Upstate.
To answer your question:

the most common sling would be a triple fold, white linen sling with brown leather adjustment straps, and a black metal roller buckle at the trigger end. The leather is sewn onto the cloth with coarse tri-weave linen/cotton thread.
A very rare variation is hemlock died leather with brass buckles... but only a few are known. Send me a PM {conversation} and I'll email some photos.
