Wow, the engineering dept kinda phoned it in that day.
I thought the cheesy plastic bit that came with my browning was cheap looking.
On the plus side, replacements can be had in any Lowe's or ACE hardware.

Why bother with some kind of titanium alloy when a wooden dowel works just as well?

I know it works. It's just that pulling apart your brand new shotgun and finding a stick has to be a bit of a letdown.

Not as bad as not finding it and getting to the range and not being able to get more than 2 shells in the tube.
