Just a question,
1) Is the molded hole for sling strong enough for a 2 point style? I recall sawing a picture of someone snapping the molded mount
2) Is the hole sufficiently large for a "HK Hook" mount? (I'm a bit skeptical since the hook is relatively large despite being a H&K design much like MP7)

This sling below has a HK hook mount

There is a proprietary single point sling mount available for the MP7. A bit pricey, but cool (and durable.) See link. You can also slip key rings through the MP7's integral sling mounts if they're too small.

I know 1 point sling will snap the molded mount hence the reason I'm asking two point.

Your link is broken, I'm assuming you mean this

Yeah I meant the one that mounts on the rail. What did you dislike about it?

1) It can turn 360 degrees
2) You can't field strip the gun with that installed
3) It pushes your rear sight 1" forward
4) Charging handle function will be impaired
5) It's a 1-point sling
6) you're asking a question that's off topic


Since nobody here had the answer I manage to acquire HK hook for my sling (it was nylon mounted)
The hook will clip in to the MP7 no problem, it's pretty restricted movement though; if it's parallel to the body you can wiggle abit about a 10 degrees of movement. If you turn hook to perpendicular to the body its solid (but I think that's only good if you want to snap the molded mount)

Picture below:
Frong mount is the hook sitting as close as possible to parallel position
Rear mount is the hook sitting perpendicular to the body

Thanks for your reply, and please accept my apologies. I didn't realize asking about a sling mount in a thread titled "sling mount" would be off topic. I'm new here.
