  1. There is no thicker "Comfortech" pad than the 14 3/8" one that is standard on the supersport. Maybe a call to customer service (tell them we need it!)
  2. Just a thought: I got in the habit of pushing off the safety on my SuperSport for every shot when I had a "lost bird" (skeet) from the safety being pushed on in the case. It's now an automatic motion but I've practiced it a lot! I'm sure that of you put it on, shoulder the gun and push it off and repeat 100 times, it'll become a thoughtless action.
  3. Not slugs, splash, he's talking about dove hunting.
  4. I shoot my SuperSport for Trap, Skeet and Sporting Clays. It is a "flat-shooting" gun (50/50) which I like. Some people prefer a "high-shooting" (60/40 or 70/30) gun for trap which allows them to "float" the rising targets. You can change the comb insert to make the SS shoot higher. It is a fantastic clays gun and, although at 7.2 lb, a little light for some people for Skeet, I'm fine with it. You can add weight to it. Try to shoot one at your club. (If you're ever in NY you're welcome to shoot mine!)
  5. Glad to help, Cordoba2008. The gun doesn't need it to function properly; it's strictly for legal compliance (don't even think about hunting without it!) BTW; nice gun!
  6. Take off the forearm retainer cap; the plug is an aluminum rod with a head in the threaded magazine "nipple".
  7. If you increase the gun weight on an ID gun, you slow the recoil speed; that doesn't allow the inertia spring to compress fully and you get cycling problems. Not an issue with a gas gun which cycles by gas pressure alone.
  8. The M4 is not an "Inertia Driven" gun so it does not have an inertia spring; it is gas-operated.
  9. Nice job, Michael! My understanding is that anything that retards or stops the gun from moving backwards will impede the inertia system so, if you put the butt against a concrete wall (I've never done this) and fire it, the action will not cycle. Conversely, if you hold it away from your body, (I have done this) it will cycle just fine. So, adding weight might impede the cycling but "limp shouldering" will not. The M4 is gas-operated out of USMC's concerns that all their add-ons might prevent an inertia action from cycling.
  10. I shoot a SuperSport for Skeet/Trap. No one has ever said that my ported barrel is any louder than an unported 12g.
  11. SS uses "Crio Plus" extended chokes M2 uses flush chokes SS holds 4+1 (plug removed) M2 3+1 SS ported M2 non-ported SS 12g: 28" or 30" only M2 various barrel lengths Both weigh the same with the same barrel length (ie: 7.2lb for 28") I've shot SBE, Sport 2, Monte, Legacy and my SS; I have "become one" with the SS; BTW, don't let anyone talk you out of the SS based on porting, it's no louder and I believe it does reduce muzzle climb. Good luck.
  12. I've shot maybe 5-6K shells through my SS and started getting an occasional FTF/ bolt locked back with live shell on the carrier. Took out the trigger group, cleaned and lubed it, reassembled the gun; good as new! Easy to do, also:cool:
  13. I shoot A SS for clays; no one has ever said that porting makes the gun any louder than a non-ported one! (The engineers did their homework in designing the port arrangement!)
  14. Problem is I don't want to ruin them 'cause they ain't cheap! The manual doesn't cover it. There's actually 2 different compounds making them up, the softer one is where your cheek rests.
  15. What's the correct procedure for changing the comb insert on the Comfort Tech stock? (Front, back, left, right, push, pull etc) _________________ William
