If you like the rifle, but hate the recoil, there are a few options you can go to. 1st is to install recoil pad designed for that purpose. Kick-eze comes to mind. That should reduce felt recoil. 2nd would be to install a muzzle brake. That will reduce recoil some. If you dont care for the looks of your rifle, then get another stock. Personally I like Richards Micro-Fit, but dont go for one of the factory 2nds. They have a lot of styles to choose from, different woods, grades of wood, and laminates in varying colors. Prices will vary depending on type of wood and grade.
No such thing as a stupid question. What is stupid is not asking it.
