    I have had a Bumpbuster with the pad adjuster installed. I just noticed recently that after about 4 outings the pad adjuster worked loose even though I do up the little screw tightly with the long handled allen key provided. Looks like not enough friction between the 2 metal plates.

    Have any of you Bumpbuster users experienced this & what fix have you tried that worked? I do drop the pad quite a bit so it does reduce the area of metal to metal contact.

    regards,

    Call Ken.

    I don't have the recoil reducer but Ken did install the adjustable butt plate on a Citori I have. He has had to replace the rough surface that is applied on mine one time to prevent your problem. Mine wasn't slipping as you describe but the surface film "bunched up" in one place. BTW, I, too have the pad lowered all the way down and canted a bit.

    His comment when I showed him the surface film bunching up was, "That shouldn't be," and he fixed it while I waited. No charge.

    Good product, good guy, great service.

    John, it shouldn't be" metal on metal" . Is the piece of non-skid material between the plates missing? Send me your address and I'll be glad to send you a new piece to put in it.

    Thanks Ken. All the photos of Bumpbusters I have seen looked like it was "metal on metal" so I thought that was just the way it was meant to be.

    I have emailed you my address in Sydney, Australia.

    I attach a photo of the unit installed on my Miroku (Browning Citori in USA).

    Thanks & regards,
    John

    Folks,

    Now that is service! I have had Ken do work for me in the past. He provides great service, and a man of his word.
