    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    It does help if you don't want to "cheek" it. Push out against the sling as a 3rd point of contact.

    Take $220.

    Step 1) Spend $20 on a cheap nylon web sling and a receiver end plate QD mount and make a single point sling.
    Step 2) Spend the other $200 on a tax stamp.
    Step 3) Be free of these silly conundrums.

    Already have the qd end plate (came with the build kit)....just looking for a sling suggestion
    Although I hate single point slings in general...it seems like this might be a viable option....

    Buy a QD sling swivel and a cheap sling and cut it down to be the right size to pull tight with the pistol where you shoot it. Same concept for the MP5K and Uzi. Quite solid.

    I used a Magpul sling. I think this one

    I know it has the HK style hooks. Mine is setup as a two point, keeps the boys a little safer.

    I remembered I have a picture.

    Those are very nice but I prefer the Magpul now. No tag end to get caught on stuff.

    Was digging through my bucket of AR parts and found a QD swivel that will work with an MLOC rail...so I can go with my go-to padded vtac...thanks for the input!
