sig 551A1 front sling mount point

OK, I now have a new Sig 551A1 rifle, have not shot it yet, here is my problem, I'm a left handed shooter, what I'm looking for is some type of sling mount for the right front of rifle to accept a HK snap hook, I see the front grips have some holes in them, is that to mount different sling points? Any help on this would be great.
Thanks

Howdy - I'm not knowledgeable in mountings for LH slings, but the holes on the hand guards are made to accept a small rail kit (Handguard Rail Kit, Swiss Style Forend)

I have the same rail kit on my A1. Make sure you put a very small amount of loctite on the screws.
