H&R .410 Gauge Tamer Shotgun - Tip #4 - Shell Storage Compartment Adjustment

One of the great features of the H&R .410 Tamer shotgun is the shell storage that is integrated into the buttstock. This feature allows you to carry extra shells that are easy to access when needed. Unfortunately, this feature may need adjustment due to wear and tear to insure your shell cartridges stay secure in the holder integrated into the buttstock.

There are two screws on the backside of the buttstock that actually secure the shell holder to the buttstock of the Tamer. These may need additional tightening from time to time in order to keep the shell holder secured to the buttstock. The main adjustment for shell retention is the two screws located on the front side of the shell holder.

The screws on the front side of the integrated shell holder have a small compression washer underneath that puts tension on the shell cartridges. This helps to hold them in place but also makes them easy to remove when needed. There are basically three things you may need to do in order to make sure your shells remain secure in the holder.

If the compression washer is in fairly good shape, all you need to do is tighten the screws a quarter to one half turn in order to tighten up the retention of your cartridges. If the wear on the compression washer is bad in a certain spot, the compression washer may simply need to be rotated to a spot that has less wear or turned upside down and then tightened. If the compression washer has extensive damage or wear, it may need to be replaced. 

Similar adjustments can also be made to H&R 20 gauge Tamer shotgun shell holders.

Got a little tension?

Staying above the water line!
