Default sling mount for yugo M70?

I have a new yugo M70 and it has the front sling mount but thats it. No other mounting point on the stock or reciever. What do you guys recomend I get for the other sling mount?

Is it a milled or stamped receiver?

The sling is mounted in a slit cut in the receiver on all fixed stock receivers., milled or stamped. The swivel is available at R-Guns and perhaps other places.
Drill a line of holes in the receiver and clean up the slot with a small flat file and insert and spread the butterfly retainer for the swivel.
An underfolder of course has the swivel on the underfolder pivot bolt.

also a wider sling point would make for a better carry, imo

Get the V6 from Echo Nine Three if you have a fixed stock on that M70.

If you don't care about originality, put it wherever. It's a lot easier to make a small slot in the receiver than it is to properly and neatly recess a pocket in the buttstock to install the swivel base. Just my opinion, but I've done both.

I would mount it on the receiver, just looks proper. RGuns has them as we'll as the smooth top cover. The are a little long (M72) and I had to take a Lillie off the front with a belt sander but I like the classic look compared to the railed top cover.

Thanks for all the info and suggestions guys. Very much appreciated!

I think I will order one of those V6 mounts from echo nine three. That was just the thing I was looking for, but I didnt know where to look. Thanks It557!
