Non-pistol gripped stocks

Does anyone have any knowledge/recommendations of recoil reducing tactical stocks that are not pistol grips? I really do not care for pistol grips on my shotgun.

I was looking at the ATI stock and forend. It seemed a decent setup for the price.

I think you're confusing pistol grip stocks and detached pistol grip stocks. It seems it's time for Stocks 101:

Thanks zippy13! A distinction I was not aware of.

So to be clear. Detached pistol grips and PGOs are what I am wanting to avoid.

Blackhawk makes some recoil reducing
stocks for rifles as well as shotguns.

Carne Frio is correct. Blackhawk is the only maker I'm aware of with a dedicated recoil reduction system, non-pistol grip stock.
Assuming you want this for the Mossy 500 you have listed, the Blackhawk item # is K05200-C.



Cheers,
C

I have the Knoxx/Blackhawk Compstock on one of my 870s. It works quite nicely.

There are several stock makers who provide recoil reduction systems for conventional stocks. I have two of them, a JS Air Cushion on my primary Skeet gun and a Shockmaster on my primary trap gun. Unfortunately, these are not a practical investment for your typical HD gun.

Sorry... when I said "only", I was thinking the same thing... only in the sense that it didn't cost twice as much as the gun it was to be used on.

It's mostly a HD gun, but sometimes I do go shooting skeet/trap with it. Where I will shoot 150-200 rounds, so I was thinking I could change out the stock with something to soak up some of the recoil.

Thanks for the info everyone!
