Obviously didnt as you had to ask.
You can use many types of slings.

1pt, 2pt or 3 pt.
HK even makes a specific sling for the MP5
Its personal preference.

My brother was asking the question next to me, i thought you had to use a 3p sling only, but he wanted to use a 1p. So i asked to make sure, it's an expression when i said "i knew it"

either way, we got the info elsewhere, thanks.

You can use any sling you want.

I hate 3 points period, but that just me. Mostly use a one point on a full stock mp5 with a web adapter on the stock near the upper receiver. Transition to a 2 point for walking longer distances where I'm not as likely to engage a contact.

Plug for the MS2 sling...

just wondering where you got this adapter? or if you know of any others and where i could get them

ive got a full stock mp5 and got a MS2 sling on the way, was hoping to attach it to the thin part of the stock near the reciever just wasnt sure how to do it or if there were specific adapters for it

thnx

I wouldn't trust that thin metal bar that's attached to flimsy plastic but that's just me!

I can't find the one I have but something like this:

edit: I did use this one on my m4 full stock. not the plate but the web part.

single point is best for active shooting, less to get caught up on and you get to use that cool hook on the left side of the gun which most people don't have a freaking clue about...

I agree! A+ I suggested 3 point sling because you can put it any type you like or what you're more comfortable with.
