    To piggy back on this, has anyone found a fix for the strap having to be adjusted after each shot?

    Just used it for the first time yesterday and I would tighten it up and look down the bore after each shot...this done in reaction to it becoming loose after each shot.

    I've used one unit that would come loose and when my unit came I found the strap routing on the first unit was incorrect. I've not had my unit come loose with the straps correctly routed.

    +1 also are you putting the thin piece of rubber between strap and barrel?
