    A friend recently got one because his wife was having right rotator cuff surgery and had trouble Going Moslem.
    He said there was a shriek only on the first use.

    There has been at least one adjustable Little Dandy rotor and several DIY modifications.
    Which seems to defeat the purpose of a fixed charge that you don't have to fiddle with or keep checking.

    There are SAAMI and CIP specs on chamber throats, but nobody seems to care.
