870 Magpul Stock or Pistol Grip Reduce Recoil Stock

Sorry if this is repetitive, but I couldn't find a thread comparing a 870 Magpul SGA stock and any Pistol Grip Recoil Stock.

I would love to be able to get my hands on both and compare, but I don't know anyone that has either.

Anyone out there that has experience with both, could you shed some light on the following questions?

1. Recoil Reduction
2. Ergonomic
3. Functionality
4. Personal Pros/Cons
5. Satisfied with your final decision

1. Recoil Reduction
The Magpul doesn't reduce the recoil impulse. The Knox recoil reducing stock does if you use it the way they recommend. Many shooters (me) will get smacked in the face every shot with their normal grip/stance. For me it required me to change my stance so I sold it. No need to retrain myself for a stock.

2. Ergonomic---I know of no stock as ergonomic as the SGA---they're ugly as hell but feel and shoulder great.

3. Functionality---It depends on user preference.

4. Personal Pros/Cons--see above.

5. Satisfied with your final decision---Yup.
