    Have you got a rubber grommet under the shot bottle? Is that grommet pretty new? Can you replace it with a new one or at least turn it over or turn it 180* so that a new surface is dealing with the shot as the bar slides to and fro? This usually ends shearing of shot in my two universal bars - and I doubt it relates to the bar being a universal type, could happen with the original Mec bar too.....breakemall....Bob Dodd

    chatbrat, doesn't the universal bar that you have a rubber insert beside the shot cavity? If not and the original bars didn't this could also be the cause. If so there is not much you can do. The newer ones had these inserts.
