Nope, it wouldn't several years and about two decades ago. Now? Things change. Dunno.
After I broke the pot metal band trying to make it fit, I called Ruger customer svc and the nice lady sent, gratis, two new, pot metal, bands.
Somewhere out there, an outfit exists that markets, or did market, real steel hard use bands/sling swivels for the .22rf and the .44 Maggie.
If you find them, please post.
