    Anyone have experience using one of these shotgun stocks?
    Supposed to really reduce felt recoil.
    Is it real/Is it hype?
    Thanks.

    Nutnfancy has a video on youtube you should check out. He shows the stock failing and talk about how it worked before it failed.

    I used to have one on my 870 clone. It really did cut down recoil with buckshot, but did even better with slugs. With regular bird shot, it felt the same as a regular stock. I eventually sold mine though because I started to prefer the look of a stock 870.

    Be careful - Knoxx makes two that look the same, but only the pricier one has the springs inside it. I really can tell the difference - I liked it so much I got another, so both the Mossys are sporting them now.

    It works, you can feel the difference, but it is not earth shattering.

    There are Knoxx stock copies around, Chinese knock offs. The Genuine Knoxx stock works very well, especially well with 3" slugs.

    Makes a 3" 12ga slug feel like a 12ga game load.

    Don't put all this crap on your shot gun, it gets heavy real quick.

    though it looks a little unorthodox, pistol version works wonderfully with buck and slugs

    Had a Knoxx stock on the Mossy 500. Could not feel the difference in recoil shooting it side by side with a stock 500. What they claim on their site is pure BS. No way in **** it reduces recoil that much. Sold mine to another member here.

    Maybe you had a knock off or you were comparing recoil using game loads. There is a major difference with 3" slugs.

    I notice the difference with mine, on an 870.

    I doubt it was a knock off. It came in a BlackHawk package and purchased from a reputable dealer. Tried all loads through the shotgun. If I was only shooting low brass target loads, I wouldn't have bothered with the stock. I have shot everything from low brass to full 3" magnum loads. No difference from what I can tell. I would suggest people to go with a Limb Saver pad and save the money unless they need an adjustable stock.

    I have one of the older ones actually made by Knoxx. My first introduction to the stock was at a SWAT training day. One of their reps made it out and then fired an 870 with his shoulder backed against a pressure treated 6X6. Shooting 00 buck from the sternum was his ridiculous finale. I will say that there is a noticeable difference on my 870, enough that my wife is no longer afraid of firing it. I know that Knoxx was purchased by Blackhawk and have not kept track of the production or quality since the sell. I also added the power Pak, which helped balance the weight of the shotgun.

    On a side note: if you have a foregrip or anything that you secure you off hand(lighting system) to while shooting, it takes a little getting used to. As the stock collapses onto itself the fore-end remains solid and can jolt your off-hand.
