I'm shooting my 82nd like Rob's, a MeanV and the standard stopper in place, dead quiet....But you still did a fine job !

Looks good! I still need to get a MeanV on the bottom, and then I will remove the factory stopper. I might just trim mine down like this.

Personally, It's not a huge issue for me. I just wanted the stopper out of the way, that's what was distracting, eventually I may do this, but I don't mind it the way it is. I like having the option. Like the other day, I wore out my stopper (Mean V) and I ordered another, so for the time being I slapped the stock on back in. It was nice to have that option.

Email from my Bowtech dealer. Others on AT got the same reply from their Bowtech dealers,"
Bowtech will not sell any of the parts to convert a 2008 82nd into a 2009 version.
They say doing that would de-value the new 2009 models if it were that easy to upgrade.
They recommend just removing the top stopper and buying aftermarket for the STS.
Sorry, I tried."

So what if you damaged the roller guard on your 2009 82nd Airborne...wouldn't BowTech sell you a roller guard ?...I'm sure they would/should.
Your solution is to say you need the roller guard for an 09 Airborne...simple!
If being honest doesn't work, then it's obvious that they want you to be dishonest...seems like the only way it will work, UNFORTUNATELY!!!

yea. My dealer shouldn't have an issue just getting Bowtech to give him an 09 roller guide. I contacted a Bowtech corporate advisor on this site(no name given to protect him) and he refused to get me a 09 roller guide too as he was worried about his corporate position with Bowtech. It's a a dumb roller guide for petes sake.
