Thanks JonnyB! Will give that a try today! Hadn't thought of that one. Do you recall where you saw that? I'd like to read their experience.I did a bit of research on your problem: try baking soda and water. Make a paste and scrub the stock. Apparently this works.
BrownDogs, when I went through the sunflowers, it just pulled the pad. The cage/sleeve stayed in tight. When the replacement pad crumbled and I went to remove it, the sleeve/cage was still tight and the pad split a bit where it gets wide outside the cage.It finally popped out.Chestle the pad on my m2 gummed up like that. There is a sleave the pad goes into. Pulling the pad off destroyed the pad and pulled the sleave out. I ending up having to hot glue the sleave back in and replace the pad. The tolerances aren't near as tight now and have some gapping between the stock and sleave/pad now
I’ve got a TriStar labeled version of the Mossberg. Same gun. Same as the Weatherby in 28 guage also, but the Weatherby is different in 12 and 20’if I remember correctly. Mine is the Bronze version. I’ve only got 300 rounds through mine with no issues. TriStar gives a 5 year warranty. I bought mine from Buds where I also bought a “lifetime” warranty for $29. If they can’t fix it they’ll allow the cost against any gun they sell. I bought it purely as a Turkish experiment and curiousity. I’m going to buy a 28 for my kids after shooting it.Looking at new 20 gauge semi from Mossberg Sa20 and weatherby sa08 and Franchi element. Looking for some feedback, particularly long term reliability.
