Fitting a TX200 cocking shoeNovember 13 2017 at 10:31 PM

I have this JM TX200 cocking shoe I have been waiting until the end of the season to install. Well the time has come. I have been surfing the net and really not sure what I need to do. Most old posts no longer have pictures now that photobucket went away. From what I gather I need to remove material from the front of the shoe (I assume the front of the shoe is the muzzle end of the shoe). Assuming that is correct how do I know how much to remove? As a side question does the piston seal make a difference when fitting the shoe? For example if I fit the shoe with my current O-ring piston seal (Vortek) and later change to a different style piston seal, will that effect how the cocking shoe locks up? I have new breech seals I plan to install at the same time. Should I install the new breech seals before I fit the shoe or after (with the thought the new ones will compress over time)? Any advice you guys have would be appreciated. Thanks.
