Sling swivels on a CZ Coach Gun
I purchased a CZ open hammer coach gun a few years ago and now would like to mount a sling on it. There seems to be a couple of options for mounting the butt end; drilled swivel directly into the stock or a leather boot. The upper end of the strap is much more iffy. Mounting to the metal between the barrels, I understand, is not a good option. A leather strap around the barrels would obscure aiming and possibly mar the finish. What about drilling and mounting a sling stud into the fore-arm wood? The possible problem I see is that the fore-arm is easily removable, attached only by a steel hook and lever, is it strong enough to support a sling without popping off the barrel while being carried?
Have any of you had good or bad experiences with this method, or do you have any other recommendations? I would appreciate your thoughts and advice.
If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.
