    I put a Jack West synthetic stock on my 1100 trap gun. The synthetic forearm does not have the detent ball and the cap is held with a WAVY WASHER. Trouble is it comes loose after about 20 rounds. Blue loctite was suggested but is there any other solutions out there to keep the washer tight??

    Teflon tape.....The make a special lowbond or weak loctite. I believe it is green? I hate to use loctite on anything you know must come apart on a regular basis.

    pry the indent section off the wood forearm and either expoxy it or screw it on the synthetic forearm. or use the wood forearm and paint it black.

    I've seen some use an "O" ring to keep it from loosening. Just put one down over the end of the magazine tube against the forearm and tighten the nut down on it.

    Geez, for the price is ought to include a detent. That's disappointing.

    Do not use the green loctite, it is close to the red in strength. Teflon tape might work, if not you can replace the magazine cap and spring retainer with the new type, they don't use the detent in the forearm.
