How is the velcro applied to the receiver?

I cleaned the side of the receiver with acetone and used this heavy duty velcro, just the loop portion.

I guess my concern is what, if any, damage is done to the receiver finish if left on for a long time.

I had the same velcro loop on the receiver for almost 2 years and about a month ago I peeled it off so I could get the receiver engraved and although it was really on there it came off with no residue left behind and no discoloration or damage to the receiver.

OP, can you update us? I have the Esstac cards and their velcro, 5 shot, and it slowly began peeling my velcro off the de-greased receiver with the loaded shot card. Has it done this to you, as well?

I'm not sure which loop velcro Esstac sends out because I bought their 6 rd shotgun cards from skdtac.com so I had to source my own loop side. I've been using the same box of velcro that I picked up from Home Depot about 2 years ago or so. I just installed a fresh piece about a month ago which is what you see in the above pics since I had to take the original piece off to get my receiver engraved. The original piece held strong for about 2 years with a 6 round card constantly velcro'd to the receiver. Hopefully I'll have the same success with this new piece. If I start to have issues then I'll update this post.

Any reason not to go ahead and get the 7 rnd esstac card?  Looks like it would fit nicely.

Honestly, there is no specific reason other than it's what I've had on hand from when I owned a Rem 870. But I agree with ArthurMorgan that the 7rd cards would fit my needs better.
