Montefeltro fore-end cap removal

Recommended Posts

I don't have the hand strength of some and have trouble getting end end cap off and tightened properly.  Is there any kind of simple tool to make this easier  Some kind of socket that would slip over the end cap would be nice.

 

Thanks,  Dave

Wrap some leather, strip of rubber or thick cloth around it and use pliers to get it loose or tightened.

Personally, I would NEVER use a tool to tighten an end cap on a shotgun.  One technique I teach our academy recruits in removing the cap if it's too tight to loosen by hand is to place the butt of the shotgun on a hard surface, such as a table top, with the barrel pointed straight up.  Grasp the barrel with one hand and pull it down, while at the same time, twisting the cap to loosen it.  I can't remember a time when that has not worked.  

I have seen barrel rings broken off by someone applying a tool, such as channel locks, to tighten the cap down.  I've used the reverse of the above to make sure the cap is snug but never use a tool to do so.

To clarify, I would use a tool only to remove the end cap, reinstallation would be by hand only.
