I'd constantly adjusted mine when I used it to avoid it sliding back on the line. It became a habit like a smoker having something in their hand.bluedsteel said:I use the T&S shell catcher on my 1100. It works well, and I like it, but two considerations:
1) My shell catcher will slowly slide to the rear as I shoot. Eventually, it will bind against the bolt, which puts the gun out of action until I disassemble it...not very good on the line. Now I just keep my eye on it, and occasionally snap it off and back on when it starts to slide back.
2) This shell catcher will wear some bluing off of the receiver...no big deal to me, but it may bother others.
It isn't just the 1100CT.vico512 said:On the T&S website, there is a disclaimer that there have been a few instances, when using one on an 1100 Classic Trap, that the clearance isn't sufficient to allow the bolt to close -- the bolt handle binds-up on the shell catcher; well, guess what -- I have one of those.
:lol: How true that is...Claydust said:The other thing with the Birchwood Casey, you do not wind up being one of those shooters I see franticly shaking the gun on it's side trying to retrieve the odd fired shell that bounces back into the receiver after firing.
