what are the sling options for an underfolder?

i tried using a normal AK sling on it the traditional way- feeding the sling through the loop over the underfolder pushbutton and attaching the clip to the front loop - i did not like it.

Next i tried only using the underfolder pushbutton loop - feed 1 end through the loop and up and over the metal 'beltbuckle' on the other end. it is very sturdy, i have a leather sling. guess this is a single point sling configuration. i like it, 1 end goes over my shoulder, the other goes under the opposite armpit. folded, if i pull the weapon away from me, the sling tightens and helps give me a steady sight. dangling folded is fine too. when i extend the stock, that worries me. those sharp ends of the extended stock look like they are going to slice my neck up.

so how do the tactical pros on here use a sling on an underfolder AK?

Well folks, i think i found something better. it's my laptop carry strap. 2 nice clamps on each end, both connected to the rear sling connector. easy on, easy off. Its not marketed as a MOUT or HST sling, but I think it is pretty good.

I definitely think single-point is the way to go with an underfolder. But i am really interested in knowing what the folks in the field use.
