I like the single point slings. On an ar15 why not attach the single point to the end of the collapseable stock as opposed the the point between the stock and reciever??? I assume there is a good reason and I don't want to reinvent the wheel. Thanks in advance.

The end of the stock would hang by your waist (or at least stomach), as opposed to your chest.

That would defeat the purpose of 1 point slings.

I would think you'd be driving the muzzle into the dirt pretty frequently.

If all you wanted were a way to let it drop and hang, there there really isn't a reason not to, other than losing the ability to transition to the other shoulder.
Guys in the 101st have made their own from 550 cord for a while. Basically just tying it to their vest. Spec Ops went a bit further with a web version that has a quick release buckle. The Wolf.

When I was in the 101st some of us would make a double loop of 550 and tie it to the sling holeat the back of the collapseable stock. then just clip it to a d-ring on the shoulder of the lbv. It did result in a few barrel in the dirt instances, but just pay attention and you'll be ok.

Getting the sling off the ass-end of the gun is one of the key advantages TO the single point sling. Mounting the gun is quicker and smoother with almost no chance of the sling getting between you and the buttstock.
