I was shooting a round of sporting clays with my LX702GCT and the two screws holding the wood grip to the forearm iron broke off and the wood came away from the gun. Both heads snapped off the screws leaving small stubs of the screws sticking out of the wood. I hope to be able to grab them with some vice grips and remove the stubs. Don't know how to prevent this happening again other than using some acraglas to make a better fit between the grip and the iron and using better quality wood screws. OBTW, I was using 2 3/4 low wall 1 oz target factory shells and that's pretty much that has been fired through this gun so far.
