TacStar shotholder frustration!
Am I the only one with this problem??
I purchased a TacStar 4 shot Shotholder for my 20 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun (and, yes, the TacStar was made specifically for this model and gauge).
This is what I email TacStar this weekend:
TacStar, I purchased the Side Saddle Shotholder 4 shot for my 20 gauge Mossberg 500. Problems are as follows: 1. The 8/32 screw used to replace the internal screw has such a shallow canal for my flathead driver that I am very close to stripping the canal. Poorly engineered, IMHO. 2. Most frustrating of all (and maybe I am truly missing something) I cannot fully jack the shotgun because the shotholder stops the slide from fully withdrawing and ejecting the spent shell. What in the world am I doing wrong? Can I not use the standard wooden forend with the TacStar? 3. In addition, I cannot tighten the 8/32 screw because the ejector is in the way (when attempting to mount the TacStar. Does anyone else have these problem or am I totally missing something? tx, tom perkins
