blackhawk

i thought it was ati but instead its the blackhawk brand that is at wal mart. i've had a thread on here about hiking with my shotgun as its my only gun for now, but the regular stock is quite heavy and i was looking at making it lighter. i found a blackhawk 6 position stock with forarm at wal mart, i picked up the package and it is lighter than just my buttstock. are these good?, and are they ok to use slugs through? trying to make my gun as light as possible but still keep it usable, a pistol grip only does make it alot lighter but hard to hit with. so does anyone know about these? thanks

It's the 6 position stock and it's making it difficult to shoot accurately? That's not making sense to me....? Are you shouldering the gun as you would with the regular stock or just hip firing?

Blackhawk products are good quality to answer that question; they'll be fine with slugs.

That is supposed to be a good one if it is what you are after. Do you need an adjustable stock with a recoil absorbing mechanism or would you rather have a regular stock? If a regular stock fits and you don't need the recoil absorbing mechanism, I would go with a regular old stock. (Your priority seems to be to reduce weight. Which is lighter?)

The only ones I've seen at walmart are the non-recoil absorbing models like this:

i am not sure what he is talking about, i haven't checked at wal-mart i was just offering an option. i got mine at www.cheaperthandirt.com but I'm sure you could find it elsewhere. i have back issues and I'm an old fart too and it helps greatly. sure that one cost more than the blackhawk but to me it was worth it.

anybody know what kind of shotgun it is?

Old, if the Blackhawk stock you looked at was lighter than your factory stock it was probably the non recoil stock like this:http://www.amazon.com/BLACKHAWK-Spec...wk+knoxx+stock

A Remington Blackhawk recoil reducing stock weighs 1.15 lbs and the forend weighs 7.4 oz. I would think that's more than your factory stock. How much does your wood(?) stock weigh? But, you may have one of them loooong woodies

I have the Blackhawk adjustable pistol grip on my 870 Police. It has a very uncomfortable cheek weld, but it does a good job of reducing felt recoil.

Order this from Blackhawk if you like the style and operation of the recoil reduction stock, I don't think this is what they have at WalMart:

works great.

The innovative Knoxx PowerPak™ brings a new level of versatility and performance to the acclaimed SpecOps Stock™. The modular PowerPak System includes a raised cheek-piece for use with optical sights, a shell holder that presents five 12-gauge shells ready for quick reloads, a watertight storage compartment for earplugs and spare batteries, and a standard height cheek-piece for use with low-rise sights or bead.

Catalyst, Per JR McGuire of AI&P Tactical the trick is adjusting the Knox Special Operations stock.

http://www.aiptactical.com/Breaking_In_the_870.html Read the part about Recoil Reducing Stocks and adjusting them so they don't cam back and pop you in the face
