    has anyone used a non-vented mag cap (ala 1100) on the sportsman 58 w/ no ill effect? I want to put a mag cap weight on one, which won't allow any gas to be bled off. max load is 1145fps 2 3/4 dram target loads.

    Since the 58 uses a mag cap to vent gas from the magazine tube, I would not want to be the one to damage hard to get parts for this old gentleman.

    I feel sure the 1100 cap can be modified by adding a couple of vents drilled from the front (at an angle) next to the weight. I wouldn't want to try it without venting the mag tube, might do damage.
