First, let me say I love my new toyz. I bought a 7615 SPS ranch carbine (16.5" bbl, .223 cal.) pump action rifle, and a 870 tactical shotty, with ghost ring sight. I've already tossed a pistol grip forend on the shotty, and have adjustable stocks ordered for both. They're a his/hers pair, and the wifey loves 'em. Anyway, I'm none too happy with the location and feel of the pump release on both of these guns (the little trigger thing that releases the pump so you can cycle the action- sorry if I'm using the wrong term). I have an older 12ga. that has the release at the rear of the trigger. These new guns both have the release in front of it. WTF? How can you cycle fast like that? They're also pretty tiny, and difficult for my younger son and my wife to engage- the one on the old shotty I have is thicker metal. These are both very thin, and kinda bite into your finger, making them difficult to depress fully. Anyone else found this troublesome? Solutions? I was thinking about attaching a small knurled screw, like you find on one-handed knives, or maybe finding a little slip-on rubber grip, if I could find one small enough (maybe a vacuum cap?). I figure these can't be removed, since the round would blow the action back without it, right? I can't imagine being able to depress the release all the way with a gloved hand, since the padding in the glove would keep it from being pressed in enough, because the damn thing is so thin. Any suggestions?
