Sling mounting help

Okay. I have a Daniel Defense M4 and I need a way to mount a 2 point sling to it.
The Rifle has holes to mount swivel studs, but only at the the front and back of the receiver (one behind receiver, and one on the first inch or so of the rail).

I need the sling to go from the butt stock (Magpul collapsible) to the end of the Omega rail handguard.

Ideas?

Put the sling itself through the slots on the butt stock, no hardware needed.

To put the sling on the end of the Omega rail, try this:

I got this ACE Ltd rail attachement from blueforcegear.com

I absolutely won't use any of the swivel attachment methods.

Demigod,

How does that attachment work when you use a sling for stability?

I don't. I suppose it would work like any other two point. But my guns are more set up for "Patrol Rifle" or defensive purposes. And my slings are set up for a more "tactical" (for lack of a better term) use.

You could mount the attachment on the bottom of the rail, I reckon!

This device allows sling mounting to any long gun.
