    I'm curious myself. Mostly Cowboy shooters like this option.

    Talked to some folks on another forum and got some info..
    Its a modification for cowboy shooters, it locks up quicker but there have been reports of "out of battery detonations" lucky the rifles were using low velocity cowboy loads..
    NOt reccomended for the 336 or 1895, out of battery detonations can be very bad in a hi-powered rifle

    My trigger pull is less than two pounds with the happy trigger and wolffe spring, I got enough to worry about. :D

    I'll pass. I thought there might be some significant benefit. Sounds like it is a razor thin "improvement" at the expense of other design benefits.
