I accidentally stumbled into a Sig 556 with folding stock at a very good pass, and I decided to pick one up. What are my options for attaching a sling that would work with the stock folded or extended?

Is it the Classic or the older 556? If it is the older 556, you can use this (http://www.cogunsales.com/index.php/U.S.-Made/SIG-Sauer-Factory-Original-556-Sidefolder-Sling-Adapter/flypage.pbv.v1.tpl.html) to put either a 2 point with an HK style front clip or a single point sling. I had one on my 556 Commando before I sold it....

I think this is the classic

Is there a small loop at the rear of the receiver (not on the stock)? If so, a two point with HK clips on each end will work, or a single point with a HK clip. Any pics you have would help.

No there is not a loop at the rear, which is kind of perplexing to me because with the stock folded, I don't see how a sling is going to work. It looks like a loop on the end of the receiver just in from of the folding stock would have fixed this problem.

I utilized the Google Machine. Apparently the earlier Classic models omitted that little detail, but the most recent ones have a reversible loop to set up for righties or lefties. Don't know how they managed to miss that in the design and testing phase...

You cold try attaching this (http://www.rainierarms.com/?page=shop/detail&product_id=2401) to the rail on top of the receiver and run a sling off of that, but like I said earlier, its functional, not optimal...

Just run it Israeli style with Paracord sling attachments.

I don't know what that means, can you elaborate?
