It will only work if the rifle is drilled and tapped to accept the mount. USGI rifles were not as a rule set up that way. A few did show up in a particular production run but the vast majority were not D&T. I have a couple that were and used exactly the same set up you are asking about. http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/0603/HoosierDaddy/Mossbergs/
