Some people cut off the old sling and resling with webbing tied with a knot. Much less expensive but obviously doesn't sit as well. If you do that, don't use dyneema and make sure to leave long enough tails for your knots.

I've heard some people say that they've cut off the old slings and used a drift to gently tap the roll pin far enough to slide in a new sling then gently tap the roll pin back into place. The manufacturer DOES NOT recommend this. Something about possibly fracturing the aluminum "ears". I dunno. We remove and reinstall roll pins in our machine shop all the time. And the manufacturer had to somehow insert the roll pins to begin with. So, I dunno.
