All right, we broke the Gen II Spec ops stock today. Put a handful of mild handload slugs and 00 buck through it and it felt ok. I said we should shoot the Gen I and the Gen II side by side with my heaviest handload to test them because I really think my Gen I feels better. So I gave my bro a hot slug to shoot and loaded the other one into my 500. He pulled up, shot and it looked like the gun came right out of his hands….the grip came right off and I am not too surprised looking at how much actual “meat” there is holding the grip on. Apparently there is a recall but he was never notified of anything…..
