A notable gunwriter contacted Amazon Public Relations to ask about the counterfeit situation involving our OPSol Mini-Clip. Shortly after, our attorney received an email from Amazon Brand Incidents to set up a conference call. On the call they were friendly and cordial. They offered condolences for the situation and had already “cleaned up” the product page on Amazon. All the counterfeit sellers were gone, except OPSol Mini-Clip and curiously enough, Amazon. We immediately inquired about Amazon as we have never sold them a single Mini-Clip. Also told them that we placed three separate orders from the seller Amazon that were fulfilled with “co-mingled” stock; stock we believe to have been ours, marked beforehand. We asked where Amazon acquired the stock to add to the “co-mingled” pot. We were told that they would “dig in” to the matter and follow-up on the next week’s phone conference. Minutes prior to the second conference call, we could not find our OPSol Mini-Clip anywhere on Amazon. As soon as the call started, our attorney asked about the whereabouts of our page. The Amazon team wondered out loud what the big deal was since [we] told them the previous week that [we] were done selling on Amazon. Absolutely incorrect and mind-boggling assertion. They then nonchalantly informed us that it was shut down because (after almost two years on Amazon including a previous review about a year ago) we violated the following:
This product has been identified as a gun magazine accessory or component, or a shotgun extension tube. Amazon policy prohibits the listing or sale on Amazon of gun magazine accessories or components, and shotgun extension tubes, including those marketed for air guns, airsoft guns, or paintball guns.
Our Appeal Response asserting that our product was incorrectly identified:
The OPSol Mini-Clip is neither a gun magazine accessory or component. The Mossberg shotguns that the OPSol Mini-Clip functions with do not have magazines. They have tube assemblies. To that point, it is not a shotgun extension tube and has nothing to do with that component of the shotgun. The OPSol Mini-Clip, if anything, is part of the receiver’s elevator assembly. It is simply an adapter that allows a shorter shotgun shell to more reliably function in Mossberg shotguns. Being able to use the shorter shells reduces the recoil which is very important to female and elderly sportsmen.
The OPSol Mini-Clip™ was designed to give “well seasoned” and “recoil sensitive” shooters the capability of shooting the trusty Mossberg 12ga platform without the usual recoil response. By using The OPSol Mini-Clip™ in conjunction with 1.75” shotgun shells, shooters stay in the game without all of the pain.
Allows use of 12ga 1.75” Birdshot, Buckshot, and Slug shells
Fits: 12ga Mossberg 500, 590, 590A1, and Maverick 88 models
Below are some points about the OPSol Mini-Clip:
- use with Aguila Birdshot, Buckshot and Slug offerings in Mossberg 12ga 500, 590 and Maverick 88 models
- easily installs and uninstalls in seconds to allow use of 1.75", 2.75" or 3" shells as desired by user
- practice with less expensive Aguila birdshot as the recoil response vs. Aguila buckshot is slight
- low recoil of buckshot allows for safe, easy and comfortable aiming and discharge with pistol grip configurations (with proper grip/face clearance, of course). Not confined to hip and laser shooting
- Mini-Clip stays in well, but may want to tape in with electrical or Gorilla tape for close contact or heavy foliage environment applications
The OPSol Mini-Clip™ was designed for recreational shooting. Any other use is at the personal discretion of the shooter. Be sure to follow safe firearm practices, and adhere to federal, state, and local gun laws. Any questions or issues with The OPSol Mini-Clip™, please contact us through www.OPSolmini-clip.com. OPSol will not be held responsible for any actions resulting from the use of this product. The OPSol Mini-Clip™ has been tested to cycle hundreds of Minishells before the need for replacement.
