What he said, no problems here.

Not actually using that gun then. Those sleeves slip and slide all over the place. Get in the way.

If you mean a sidesaddle for sure then you do replace a factory screw and part here and there but the real issue on the 500's aluminum rec'r is the potential to overtighten these -- you must not overtighten or you will bind the action.

Very true I forgot to mention that. On every one I have installed I just use a little loctite and just snug it real good, not too much, haven't had anyone come back to me and say theirs fell off or anything else. Or like I said earlier, use velcro, it works good too and you can detach if you want for any reason.

most of my shotguns use these type of holders and they work great for me.

The butt sleeve I use doesn't budge, even if I were to force with hand.
