    Is the value to a Perazzi, Kolar or Krieghoff Target shotgun affected by adding a recoil reducer like a GraCoil or ISIS, by a professional gunsmith?

    Some people think of them as a plus and some think of them as a negative. Depends on who is trying to buy it.

    They are a plus to the one that like that specific recoil reducer AND the stock fits them perfectly. Having said that, they don't really increase the value much less recover the price you pay for the add ons.

    That pretty much applies to all after market additions. You don't get full return on cost for porting, choke tubes, adjustable stocks, high grade wood, engraving, etc.

    Surely you're not shooting it for re-sale? Buy another stock and make it do what you want if your afraid to mess with the factory stock, then you have the re-sale factor covered??

    No one thinks of them as a plus for resale- even if you want one- the best you can find in the one in ten that wants one- doesnt think the value of the gun is reduced too much

    Negative

    What Hap said. I never understood how a shooter could expect to shoot a gun well if they were worrying about what someone else would give them for it someday if they sell it. Number one priority should be making the gun fit you well. It's a tool. Make your tool comfortable for you to use.

    I like them but they do not add value IMO. If you are ever worried about recovering the cost just buy a different stock. In the event you ever sell the gun put original back on and sell your stock on ts.com with the recoil added to it. That is your best bet.

    Or... buy a PFS used on trapshooters.com. The cost may be slightly more than used stock + recoil system. If you buy it at the right price you can sell a PFS for what you've got in it, or buy another grip and take the stock with you to the next gun.
