Default Real or repro: M1 web sling S.M. Co. 1943

I'm in the hunt for an original USGI M1 (or is it M1942?) web sling in good+ condition with a clear maker mark that is dated 1943 (or earlier, if they even exist) and is khaki/tan/OD #3 in color. I stumbled upon this sling for sale, which meets all of the requirements, but I am skeptical of its authenticity. The seller claims it is original USGI, and they have a return policy, but I would like confirmation that it's legitimate before I buy it. Could someone please let me know if it is USGI or a reproduction? Thank you very much!
