This might be an overly simple and maybe kind of stupid question, but what would be a good sling use on my M1a other than the original od green M14 one? Id prefer something black in color.

Check out Brownell's "Competitor Plus. Black or Brown in color. Also you might want to look up (on "you tube"), Improving Your Shooting #7 and #8, and then google "Rigging the Service Rifle Sling". Great instruction for how to use a sling. Good Luck.

Contact Turner Slings

I noticed that they come in 2 different lengths. Which one do you think would be more ideal?
Here's the website: http://www.turnersling.com/

Contact them, they'll ask you questions (height, weight, whether you use a shooting jacket, rifle you're shooting etc.). Based on your info, they'll suggest the length to use.

They come in black too. I like battle slings like a 2 or 3 point on my Tanker. I guess it all depends on what you intend to use the peticular rifle in question for. Is it just for recreational shooting or maybe for hunting. Their are slings for every purpose so figure what you need the sling for and make your purchase.

What you want is a M1907 style leather sling!

This is what they still use at Camp Perry for competition and what the Honor Guards use on there parade rifles. These slings look great and are great for use when shooting. Here are some of the sling makers starting from the best:

1) Les Tam. The master, the legend himself, usually a few months wait, is suppose to be retired, the best. Nice thick high quality leather, the best:

2) Ron Brown Slings. Trained by Les Tam, just as good:

3) Turner is the best non-custom or commercial sling, better then the USGI ones. I little on the thin side if you ask me, no brass frogs.

4) MRT leather sling (M1907). You can still find the USGI ones on eBay and stuff like that for like $15-30. The leather on these slings are thinner then the Turner slings and need a good break in before use. No brass frogs available.

I hope this helps!

Edit: BTW there are a lot of junkie copies out there that won't work or will crap out real fast! This is one of the most copied sling patterns. If you stick with the above, especially 1-3, your good to go!
