    Does any body have any experience with a Griggs recoil reducer? Please give me your thoughts. I think they are made in Utah but I'm not sure. I looking at a BT 99 with one installed. It appears it slides on a wedge angle up and down with a spring. Sorry but I have no pictures of it.

    Thanks Huntinandhotrods

    Since the Griggs redirects the gun down upon shooting the gun would it be somthing only used for singles or does it recover fast enough for doubles? Its definately an interesting theory on its design. Not interested in one personally but i am interested and curious on its usefullness all the same. Web Site for Griggs above.

    Thank you all for the information! I might see if I can shoot the BT first to see if I like it. I can buy the gun fairly cheap and thought it might be a good back up type gun.

    Sirmissalot - Thanks for asking. I built a 36 Chevy Low Cab pickup that we take to a lot of shows. It has been a lot of fun. i will try to post some pictures later.

    I have owned a couple of the Griggs recoil redirectors. They look nice on guns, the concept would seem to make sense. For me, I got a sore shoulder from using them due to the thin pad, as it does not offer a lot of protection. I tried different settings and could not find a setting that decreased felt recoil for me.

Complete carb to pan and has the TTI headers ceramic coat headers with it ... I don't know what it came out of but will find out next week at the show ...

    Both those cars are damn nice looking. I had a '72 Chevelle but it looked nothing like that. Of course i was 17 yrs old and making $3.55/hr. It was green( mostly rust) with white roof and an oil leaking 350 4barrel. I'm jealous of both your toys.
