    Appears to be a three point sling as it attaches to the body. A three point sling would have a loop, as shown in the picture, that wraps around the body of the shooter to keep the weapon secured. Then the two points are attached to the front and rear of the weapon.

    Thats a three point. If you're versed in the MP5 manual of arms, the 3 point makes a lotta sense. So an AR type rifle, I'd look at a 2 point from a reputable designer, like Larry Vickers. Single point slings are great if you're in and out of a vehicle or clearing rooms a lot, but a good 2 point is a great compromise for most people.
