Hey guys I want to sling my TX. I wanted someones reassurance the under lever is 14mm that I measured?

Also, how do I go about slinging/drilling this beauty? Just drill, screw and I'm good? or some kind of epoxy? Thanks!

I'm sorry to say this but I would not drill anything into that gun......too nice, I would use the 200 from the bench or general FT without doing that to it, could not bring myself to do that.

Yeah. I'm not into FT. Or "resale value". :lol: A sling would look nice on this Hunter Carbine. Thanks for your input though!

If you think a sling would make this beautiful gun look nicer, then go ahead and do it. I expect a lot of people with beautiful guns with really nice stocks add a sling. How to do it? The correct size drill bit for the screws used and a drill are about the only tools that you need. Measure the length of the screw and don't drill any deeper.

I'm hoping that you are only talking about "drilling" the stock to mount a Sling Swivel at the rear of the rifle. The front sling swivel is a clamp on affair for these rifles as with most other underlevers.

Also curious what you used to measure the size of the underlever that causes you to second guess yourself.

I bought a Gammo Gun Buddy sling from Scopes and Ammo.com for $19.99. It only requires a single swivel.

Don't have a fancy measuring device, just rulers and measuring tape :lol: I'll be using the under-lever clamp for sure. I measured about 14mm, looks exactly the same as my 97. Browsed around the web, the stud/clamp I'm getting is for use on hw97's & tx200/hc's or anything 14mm.
