Here's a generic pic...

April 21 2017, 2:50 PM 

Didn't have time to dig out the HB, but I take a USGI Silent sling as shown in the pic below, and remove one of the buckles and get rid of it.. Then thread the sling through the hole in the stock, and weave it back through the remaining buckle as shown below.. Finish it off with a few strips of black Gorilla tape, and the metal never comes in contact with the stock. I like the sling you posted as well.. Looks nice with the pad & elastic. I just had a few of these USGI slings laying around and put them to use. For me, they work fine and the stock looks perfect.. I roll them up and stick them right in the stock void. Helps when putting the gun back in the case, as you don't have to remove the sling..Personal preference, again, but I don't like drilling into the gun or adding sling studs, etc.. If I can't help it..

How about adding a 30mm ring with rail on top

April 21 2017, 9:55 PM 

I was thinking that you could add a 30 millimeter rings to the scope rail that has another Picatinny rail on top of it. That would give you a place to hang a sling from. A 30 millimeter ring would not touch a 1" scope but should firmly attach the sling to the receiver.

Hi David, not sure what you have in mind. Just wanted something like Bee does with

April 22 2017, 2:01 AM 

a shoulder pad to keep from slipping...I like the Amazon sling ...would remove ALL metal and sew one of the clips male/female as both are female....one male sewn on and then they would be quick release?

Not sure how you'd attach it

April 21 2017, 10:15 PM 

I am a fan of having little or no metal/plastic contacting the gun, but I'm not sure how you'd properly attach that Amazon sling.

Bee, as explained to david above.....leave the plastic rounded squeeze quick release

April 22 2017, 2:05 AM 

clips higher on your chest so the gun slings through the butt like your config.
Or maybe just use what you have.....Might I ask where your got your sling?
Thanks

Got my USGI slings online somewhere...can't recall....but

April 22 2017, 6:44 AM 

I think that latest single-point sling you posted would work fine, if you get rid of that metal clip. If you get it, let us know what you think.. Really can't go wrong for that price..
