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.
