Perfect timing Dean2! I was just getting ready to order the sgl. shot follower. I'll call him to see if he'd trade mine,too. Then I'd have both. I have 2 Cooper sgl shot rifles and they are quick and easy to load so James's should be too. I can use the mag. for around here so I can have one ready when the lone groundhog shows up. All I would have to do is close the bolt. Yeah, I could run a round into the chamber a apply the safety; but it's not the best thing to do where I go. All in all, having options is a good thing! Thanks for the tip!
