The metal looks like it's from a U.S. Garand sling or is copied from one. It's the leather thats interesting. Are there any markings on it? Is the buckle made of flat steel or from wire? It's hard to tell from the photo.

The buckle is flat metal. The leather looks to be pebbled with indentations running along the outside edges. Here's a couple more pics

Home made leather sling using GI metal from a web sling. I can see that the clasp is not locked down. The leather is probably to thick for it the securely fasten.
