The web sling was used to get a proper angle for firing fragmentation rifle grenades from the M1 rifle. Anti-tank grenades were almost always head on, point blank. TMs of the day show you how to prepare your sling for shooting rifle grenades. The M1903 Springfield's standard rear sight was used for grenades. The M1 carbine only shot signals so no sight was required... Not much call for the M15 grenade sight.
