    Thinking of putting one of these recoil reducers on my mx2000 single barrel.
    which one would be the best? Mainly interested in reducing recoil to the face.
    Thanks for the info.

    I just put a Gracoil Length of pull (LOP) on my gun and it works great! I thought about a RAD but they are pretty heavy, and you can feel the extra weight, AND more expensive, and can not be adjusted for LOP.

    Buy a Precision Fit and you have it all -- all the adjustment u'll ever need -- and recoil reduction better than anything out there -- and you still have an unaltered stock

    If shoulder pounding is your only problem, I can say first hand that the RADII worked for me.

    Because that was not my only problem, I am now going to a Stock-Lock which I would say is tops if you can afford it. If not, RADII is really a high-end piece that works.

    JS Air Cushion. Everything else looks like goat vomit.

    You're discussing devices which reduce straight-back recoil. Face-slap is a stock-fitting issue; you may want to consult Rollin Oswald. Phil E

    I'm having the same thing happening to me. Never felt pain like this in my face.I have a new K 80 trap special combo and had it out to Ottsville two times in three weeks. They put cast off on the stock ( I'm right handed )and put on a Keckezz pad which took (1/2") off the LOP. Took it to the range and got belted again.Some of the guys said I have a "pitch problum" I changed the angle of the pitch at the butt. I shoot two rounds and it looks like it works. I won't know if this was the full fix till next week as I still have pain from before and need to rest. I will say that my face does fell better.Look at pitch it may help.

    I have a Rad II and a Gra-Coil both. I prefer the Rad by far. Earier to adjust and takes all the recoil out. Give Ken Rucker a call at Speedbump Stockworks. He frequents this board often and is a really great guy. Does excellent work also. All it will cost you is a phone call to talk to him. He can explain any questions you have. He does install both but I believe he personally prefers the Rad. Hope this helps a little.

    Seriously Puablo, as posted above, these devices are not likely to help your face.

    I have a Browning 325 that I use to shoot sporting clays and trap with. I talked with Greg Hissem at http://www.greghissemstockworks.com/ about the RAD. I was concerned about the weight, durability and reliability. He suggested the RAD Basic. The Basic is light weight, no bells and whistles but it does a very good job reducing recoil.

    I do agree with the comment above about face slap being tied to stock fit. Prior to the RAD I would notice occasional face slap but since the installation it is not noticeable. That could be tied to the fact that I am pay more attention to my the way I mount the gun.

    Greg does fantastic work and in a very timely manner. He offers both the RAD, and GraCoil. Very knowledgeable.

    thanks for the info...i had a pfs on the mx2000---no recoil whatsoever, but I could not get it to function properly on this gun. So after trying everything to make it work over the winter with no success, I went back to the wood stock-never a malfunction, but the recoil was noticibly more. To finally correct the problem temporarily, I reinstalled a Meadows converta-pad over the soft comb, which reduced the recoil even more. I'm going to shoot gun this way rest of the season, then consider other options.

    Did you talk to Vern ? -- It would be worth the call to him at PFS -- explain your problem -- he stands behind he units -- if you have problem he will fix it and in a short time -- if it is an adjustment he can explain and walk you through it -- give it a try before you give up on your PFS
