Default sling attatchment ? from a newb

hello, my buddy gave me a one point sling, great, although bushmaster doesn't give you a lot of options on where to mount a one point sling on their xm-15 rifles. i was thinking the only real place would be at the receiver end plate, please correct me if I'm wrong, thank you.


the sling is from cabela's and is a D-ring type clip, i was thinking of this piece here:

2-MPIMAG500BLK - Magpul Industries AR15 Ambidextrous Sling Attachment Point Black

The end plate is a great location for a single point sling and the Magpul plate should be a good one.

Thats where I put my sling but I didnt get a magpul ambi, I got a left side one from my local gun shop, works great just had to put something over the hook point to help keep noise down.

I have a Magpul ASAP, I love it, transition from left to right is amazing, very versatile.
