Mine are setup just like any hunting rifle.
I can take the sling off my bolt gun and put it on my AR.

And that works well with a high capacity magazine?

I just use 10 round mags for hunting.
Yes a 30 or 20 round will poke ya in the back.
Every gun I own gets used for hunting.
SHTF type deal it might not be the best sling or tacticool.
But it's functional and works for hunting,I'll post a pic later how I got it attached.
Busy plowing now.

If you are hunting with the AR, Hunter399 makes great suggestions. Go with a 10 round mag (if legal for you) and throw a “Claw” sling on it. I have Claw slings on all my hunting rifles, love them.

If using the same rifle you hunt with for Home Defense, I would switch out for a “tactical” dual point quick adjustable sling when not hunting though.

Something to think about with slings on ARs. The only time I have used my slings on my ARs (outside the military) is doing a Run and Gun course (organized, not so often anymore) or a shoot and scoot target shooting session this is as often as I can. The rest of the time they are Ranger Banded to the stocks out of the way.
Hunting you will definitely want a “comfortable” sling because you will probably be carrying it a lot. You might want to look at a safari setup that allows you to carry across your chest. It is a very fast way of on get on target.
Unless some zombie methmaggots invade our neighborhood, I really do not see a scenario where I would have to sling my AR in a Home Defense situation.
But the option is there if needed.

The front mine has a slot type handguard.
Your looking for a part like this,which is actually a bipod mount.
Works great for bipod or sling.

Then on the rear end I just added a sling stud ,with lock tight and a nut.
Like this.
Hasn't broke yet,I've used it alot.
It's not fancy,or looks good,but functional yes.
Then I just use a plain leather strap type sling,like seen in pic.

If you already have Magpul slots on your hand guard and stock just add a QD mount like this

Ended up with a Vickers padded sling with push button sling swivels.  Gun was already setup for that.  I like the quick adjustment on sling length.  Buy once, cry once.   :tup:

Vtac slings are some of the most versatile on the market

This is what I have. Like it so far, but I'm no running Gunner. You Tube is your friend.  :twocents:
