Personally I just use a Black Hawk regular straight sling... old school... works good for me.

Nice thing about the MS2 and MS3 is it can be used as a single point or a standard sling.

Use whatever standard sling with QD swivels and these mounts;
Picatinny Rail QD Sling Swivel Stud - COMBO [PR-QD STUD - COMBO] - $34.00 : Tacticool22, Tactical .22 Rifle Parts and Accessories
The pics are from my CAM system so the parts show up better. There are some pics of the individual pieces on the site where they are black.

If I were going to use a sling on my 15-22, this would be what I would use.

Run a Magpul MS3 to mirror the one on my work rifle. RSA on front, attached to the QD on the back. Love it. Single point if I'm doing lots of transition from shoulder to shoulder, two point once I'm tired of getting hit in the nuts.

What features are looking for in a sling.

Do you want a traditional setup that is on the bottom of the rifle for just carrying? For this I suggest Tacticool22's solution or something along the lines of this sling mount with this basic sling. Install the mount on the bottom side of your hand guard towards the front and connect the sling. On the other end, route the sling through the sling loop on the buttstock's toe if you have a basic model or through one of the slots on the buttstock if you have the MOE edition.

Do you want a more tactical setup where it's mounted on the side? For this there are a plethora of options and it would be difficult to suggest something without first asking lots of questions. The only way to narrow it down is to find out what type of shooting you will primarily be doing and how you want the rifle to handle and hang on your body. Do you want quick length adjustment? How about quick disconnect? Would you like a hybrid sling that can be used as both a single point and 2-point? Do you want padding?

depends on what you want it for.
I like the USGI in black USGI Sling Nylon or Cotton and other places on my 15-22.
same as Garand Sling

I have a leather sling, like this one Military Antiques, Military Collectibles and Militaria U.S. 1907 WWII Leather Rifle Sling: Steel Fittings (Garand Sling) IMA-USA.COM for my 22 wood stock bolt action.

both are CMP legal and work, are cheap too.

That Fab Defence Picatinny sling loop is the nicest one I have seen (I have one) is it nice and rounded with no sharp edges to cut your sling.
It is a good setup if you don't want QD swivels.
If you run a single point, wear a cup till you learn the correct firearm discipline.

I swap the sling from my M&P Sport, which is a Viking Tactical (padded) using QD swivels. I have the MOE 15-22 with the integral rear QD mount on the lower. (My Sport has a MagPul CTR stock which has an integral QD mount)

For the front QD on my 15-22 I just picked up one of these

QD Rail Mount Low Pro 90 | Damage Industries: Supplying US & Allied Forces Quality Equipment

Aim has a really good price on them but they are currently out of stock there:

Damage Ind. Low-Pro QD Sling Mount

(I have an MOE hand guard on my Sport so I use an Impact Mount-N-Slot on the Sport).
