    Suppose you pull your 870 release trigger and then decide not to shoot for whatever reason. How do you let up on it? Do you have to hit the action open button and then pump the gun open? Seems like you would need three hands. How does this work?

    Thanks,
    Joe

    Hit the slide release and then pull the slide back slightly. It is not that hard to do. I suggest practice with an empty gun.

    Mine works just like P3AT says, this DOES unset the release, don't know about others. As per P3AT & Hoosier Daddy check (practice) with an EMPTY gun. Ross Puls

    You were SUPPOSED to tell him to keep one hand on the trigger, the other on the disarm lever - then use his forehead to pull the pump handle back.


    (Have you forgotten this is the same fella who made his own trapshooting scope mount out of balsa wood?)



    Sigh...no sense of HUMOR anymore...
