It's no a matter of keeping the bolts tight...July 20 2006 at 6:27 PM

Response to Yeah I figured that,
It's a matter of clamping force, and for that you need more bolts. After several unsuccessful attempts to get a scope to function on my Shadow, I finally broke down (!) and spend $9.75 (shipping included) on Accu-shot mounts at scragglepoint.com.
I got the 2 piece mounts that have 2 base clamp and 4 scope clamp screws in each mount, along with a recoil pin in one mount. This worked very well on my Shadow, and even works on my Powerline 1000 (which kicks more than the Shadow).
BTW - this "under $10.00" kit comes with a couple of spare bolts and 3 allen wrenches to fit all the fasteners. A super buy....
