Re: magneto speed help

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.

Re: magneto speed help

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?
