Default ******ALERT*****Newbie question

I recently picked up a new sig556 which I love. Only had a couple chances to shoot it so far. The rifle came with a 2point sling. I really have no idea how to set this up properly. I played with it a bit last night. Can anyone tell me how it's done properly or point me to a source that would be helpful?

Thanks in advance.

Mine came with the same sling. I couldn't figure it out so I just got a Magpul MS3 sling. Much happier.

The thing connects to some stuff and you can adjust the other thing. Sorry I got no clue.

Thank you for the video. I think I just need to play with the sling and see what I can figure out. I noticed in the video that one of the slings has a similar extra portion that may be a quick adjustment feature.

Find out if there is an Appleseed shoot in your area. Sit in on a instructors course or two. Nothing like learning from someone who really knows what they are talking about.
