I just saw this pic again and it made me curious....

If he has the stock off but has it slung .. where is the rear sling swivel? Anyone have a pic of a '28 with a the stock removed and a sling attached that we can see how it's done? His mess kit bag looks like it might have a L drum in it...also there are three 30 rd sticks and possibly two 20 rd sticks in his 20 rd pouch..

Looks to me like he's holding it upside down in his right hand.

If the soldier was going to use it without the buttstock, many times they would attach the sling swivel to the bottom end of the pistol grip. You can see a good picture of this being done in de Trez' American Warriors.
