    Has anybody had any experience with this recoil stock setup? I was thinking about buying one for my Winchester 1300.

    I've got the SpecOps on my Mossberg. Still haven't shot it since I put it on, but I'm hoping maybe next week.

    It looks cool if you like that retractable stock look. :smoker:

    Oh, don't be a baby! 12 ga does not kick. 10 ga, maybe. BTW, the 1300 is the BEST!

    I have the Knoxx on my 12 Ga. I attended a class shortly after installing it, and we shot nothing but 00 buck and slugs ALL afternoon. It was like shooting mild bird shot. Everyone else was starting to get a sore shoulder.

    I am about to get a Remington, and will have a Knoxx collapsible on it.

    Ok thats good to know. With this stock does it have to be to tight against the shoulder?

    It doesn't self absorb recoil in the air, it still needs the resistance of something whether it's your shoulder, or leg, arm etc.

    If you think about it, if you could suspend a gun in air, a gun with a wooden stock or Knox will still fly back the same distance. There is no recoil unless it's against something. Otherwise it's just energy.

    yes I understand that, I remember reading a review about it, and it said dont hold it too close it will slap(punch) your cheek. overall it sounds like a good investment.

    I have the Spec-op Knoxx on my Winchester Police Stainless, built on the model 1200 platform. Even after 7 shoulder surgeries, I have no problem shooting it. Maybe I should also mention this is a dedicated slug gun, which is a bit harder kicking than normal. I thought I would have to give up a shotty but Knoxx saved me and you'll find it is a quality built product.

    If you don't hold it tight against your shoulder, the chances are greater that you'll get slapped in the face.
