Tried that a while ago and it made no difference.
When I removed the shell catch assembly to do this mod, I noticed a problem with the rear shell catch.
If you look at that shell catch on the Brownells site, the catch has a up/down groove towards the rear and parallel with the back edge. On mine, the lower portion of that groove terminates before it hits the bottom of the shell catch. It also has a small ridge along the bottom edge.
God gave you a soul.
Your parents, a body.
Your country, a rifle.
Keep all of them clean.
