If that’s true I wonder why Cap offered the load 2 with a positive stop, I believe he called it his “Posi-Lock”-“Top Gun” modification. I have one. I believe a true “Drop 2” was only done on original 87’s by Fireball, and never done on IAC imports by anyone. There seems to be confusion on the difference between Cap’s original IAC imports with what he called his load 2 that had a hole in the center of the follower and depended on the nose of the ejector catching in that hole to prevent the carrier going too low and the modifications that Lassiter does to provide a positive stop that prevents the carrier going to low regardless on how hard the shooter pushes down when loading 2 shells. A different version was later offered by Cap and he called it his “Posi-Lock”-“Top Gun” modification. In both cases the shooter has to push the shells down and not “Drop 2”.
Sounds like you have a super clean IAC 87 for sale and I would be first to make you an offer if I didn’t have 3 in my safe already, two with Lassiter’s modification and one of Cap’s Top Gun modification. All 3 have the positive stop for load 2 that requires pushing the shells down. There is absolutely nothing unsafe shooting a positive stop load 2 done by Lassiter or Cap.
