I thought this was a good idea (I still do) but the laser will not tighten down on my Takedown model with the black synthetic stock. If I bump it or handle it the laser will loosen and won't stay sighted in. I fixed this by putting a single layer of black electrical tape on the barrel and stock beneath where the strap with the tightening screw tightens down. It seems to be stable now. One thing you need to do is slit the tape where the barrel and stock meet or the tape will block the installation.
