    I just received a canvas GI style sling directly from Appleseed's online store. I'd like to put it on either my Savage Mark II or my Marlin XT-22, but there doesn't seem to be a way to connect it to the small, roughly pea-sized sling studs.
    Is there some sort of adapter I need to buy?

    Inch and a quarter I believe. I have a GI sling on my 10/22 Liberty Rifle. Don't forget the tech sights.

    I've got no idea why Easy linked you that part. That's probably the part you already have on the GI sling.

    Just get a couple of standard sling loops for normal sling studs and thread the sling through your new loops instead of the old attachment hardware (keeping the obvious bits).

    I like these: Talon Sling Loops, but not for any particularly good reason.

    For extra credit, you can drill and epoxy in a couple of grovtec flush cups and use QD sling loops instead.

    Tech sights sells a 1" version of the GI web sling. 1" swivels are more common on commercial rifles and slings. Just another option.

    Canvas?

    I prefer the QD swivels for appleseed shoots.

    The advice here led me to the correct QD mounts and slings. I'm ready now for the upcoming Appleseed I'm attending...
