    This is a good configuration. I have it or similar on both my .556 AR's. Unless you add some type of rail or other option where you can put a sling swivel or sling swivel QD attachment to the front end of the upper, I don't see any other option than a single point.

    If you chose to go with a single point sling, you should check out the Magpul MS3 sling. I allows quick transition between single point and traditional sling carry. I have one and I really like it.

    Try looking at the magpul moe sling attachment. It may work on your handy guards as well.

    Personally I also prefer the 3 point for most uses, especially heavier guns like battle rifles and big shotguns but for casual and short term carry of a light carbine a single point gets the job done
