Don's know why not and this is typical of what is a standard setup. You will have to drill 2" up from the toe of the buttstock but that should not be a problem. Just follow the instruction provided. I usually use Unkle Mike stuff and this should work just fine. I have done two this month and one was on a new Express, for my Grandson.



Be Safe !!!

If'n you ain't pretty "thick" or suffer from old injuries to the shoulders, upper back or similar... you may opt for the padded sling.

For me, that unpadded one is preferred for my .22 bolt gun for squirrel quests but on my heavier guns that will also be carried on the sling far further, I just love the wider, padded slings.
