Fitting a TX200 cocking shoe

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.

I did not need to remove any material. It’s one of the best upgrades you can do to a TX imo.

You need to take off the lever lock at the muzzle and take the breech seals out. Then fit it till the lever get parallel to the barrel and you can feel very light contact wil the compression cylinder and the transfer port.
