I'm with ya on that. I think I'd prefer a sling mount on the side rail rather than the bottom rail. Hope the stackup of mount/swivel doesn't stick out so far as to be anoying. If you add a mount/sling swivel, I sure would like to see some photos of your setup.You can hang a sling off it anywhere you want. There are dozens of manufacturers who make picatinny sling mounts.
