I'll throw my vote in for two point slings. I prefer the Boonie Packer 2P 1.25".
It has all the benefits of a 3 point with a buckle to allow for transitions. $12 shipped from them for a high quality sling is hard to beat.

The Specter Gear slings are nice and very well constructed. The 3 point is probably a bit more secure than the 2P but has an additional strap along the line of the weapon to contend with. I also do not like the emergency release or transition buckle that they offer. Keep it simple. 3 points are already more complicated than they need to be in my opinion. I definitely say stay away from the single points(nut busters). Get either a 2P or 3P.

I'm sure people will mention the Vickers two point sling. It is a nice robust sling but to me its not worth $45. It works as well as the BooniePacker 2P but the BP is only $12 shipped. The 2P does not need any special adapters to work with the CTR and front side swivel that you have.

Again.....just my opinions. You will be happy with either a 2 or 3 point. The only benefit that I can see with a single point is ease of transition to opposite shoulder.

I'm sorry I misread your post. I though you had the side mount. The factory bottom swivel will work and it will require an adapter or paracord to the FSB. Side mounts are just more preferrable for tactical slings.
