Any input would be great.
Well, first off Mike finding any production holster to fit a 16" barrel properly, is next to imposible.
Once you have the scope you want to use, then I go by measurents from there. You can go to slightly shorter barrel as long as the scope setup is close to the same. Fitting for custom forends is not a problem either, if you choose that route also. And there are a few options that I can build into it. Or I can also just build a generic fit, if that's your wish.
The backpack rigs I built for Mark, Ernie, and Mike is a design I came up with for long hauls. They can be worn by themselves, or with minor strap changes, attach to a main pack.
I build them one at a time, by myself,,,,and your satisfaction is most important.
I'm a little biased, but I don't think there is a better hunting holster made.
If there was, I would have just bought one myself!
