View Full Version : Recoil reducing stocks?

December 21, 2006, 05:25 PM
I have a Mossberg 590. I have seen them before. I like the looks of them. It seems like it would be easier to stay on target. I have a full stock with pistol grip on it now. It is a lillte long for my prefrence. I really dont want anything foldable.
How well do they perform? Who makes them? What price should I expect to pay for one? Do they make collapsible versions?

I'm quite interested in this also, I haven't tried one yet, so no feedback. I'd appreciate your feedback on any recoil reducing stock that you end up using though, as I'm not likely to make any firearms related purchases in the very near future.

I will be getting something in the next few days. This long one is definitey not what I want.

I put a Knoxx SpecOP stock on my Winchester 12 ga after several shoulder surgeries and nerve damage. I love it. I can shoot about as much as I want to with no pain. Personally, I'd rate them as one of the greatest inventions in modern history.

I can't remember exactly, but it seems I gave around $125. Matter of fact, I mentioned The FiringLine and got a discount from the company! (very easy folks to deal with).

Do a search on Knoxx and you'll probably find everything you ever wanted to know!

I put the Knoxx Spec Ops on my Remington 870 just before taking the Primary Defensive Shotgun course at Tac Pro Shooting Center. Over the course of the 3 day course, I fired over 500 rounds of everything, birdshot, slugs, buckshot, full power and reduced recoil. On the evening of the third day I went dove hunting. No problem. I literally think I could shoot the thing non-stop all day long without any problem at all. A big plus is that the Spec Ops is adjustable pull, so you can adjust it however you want it. I am a big fan.

I see it as a gimmick. I habve never had an ssue with recoil from a 12 gauge, whether it be a 200rd a day trainign session, or a long day of back to back doubles in the dove field. I am not al arge guy at 5'7" 175. Equipment does not take the place of technique and training.

I do see it as a somewhat viable solution for those with physical ailments, as mentioned above.

When I previously shot my 12 gauge a lot (50+ rounds), I would always have a mark or bruise on my shoulder. After my knoxx compstock, I can shoot as much as I want and no damage. I can perceive less recoil as I shoot too. Thus, I think its a good invention since maybe I can shoot faster with less recoil. I use one on a winchester 1300 defender.
