I have to agree with ryguy - unless he's a police officer who's agency won't let them take tools to their issued guns.
Otherwise, for a single point sling get the $24 Noveske QD end plate and replace the existing end plate. It's made of steel unlike some that are aluminum. Even if you have to break through the castle nut staking and restake it's not a difficult job. Or shouldn't cost much to have someone else do it.
I have two and love them. Besides the strength of steel, another big advantage is you can still collapse the stock all the way when the sling is removed. With the collar shown above you'll lose the shortest position.
