Do Silver Seitz guns need Soft Touch stocks?

    Why do many of the SS guns for sale on this site have recoil reduction units installed?

    My guess would be that most owners of the SS guns have been shooting a long time and are recoil sensitive. Few young, new shooters can afford a $14,000 gun?

    Dove Commander is right . Most Seitz shooters are old-fat and very recoil sensitive

    I am a newer shooter (10 years and 40) I shoot a soft touch on both my doubles gun and single barrel. Once you shoot one you will love it!! I have one on the sietz because i wanted one. I figure the least amount of recoil on any gun the less apt I will be to finch in the future. Try one. The stock lock system and the PFS stocks are also great investments depending on the style and $

    My Seitz has a Stock lock, and I couldn't shoot 3 dram loads without it. My Perazzi doubles gun has a PFS, and it's worth every penny. The old K-80 may get a Soft touch.

    pjh...I assume it's worth it? Does your have the magnetic stop?

    Never a big fan recoil devices - but my Seitz came with one - I shoot a fare amount of practice, and let me tell you the soft touch is a great recoil device - you can shoot all day, recoil - whats that? - the only bad thing is shoot more yah pay more!! would highly recommend the soft touch to anyone

    I would recommend anything that reduces felt recoil. I have thought about a soft touch comb for my PFS. That would be a first.

    My guess would be that they do not fit the shooters properly.

    I just bought a new SS about 6 months back, fitted with your typical Kickeze rubber pad.

    I have no awareness of it kicking, so I don't know why people opt for the reducers.

    Sietz Guns do recoil more than K guns . P guns recoil more than Sietz Guns
    Mach Ones are soft . Off the self guns K-Guns recoil the least . IMHO I have had new stock made for my Sietz Now its ready !

    Dove Commander. I think the soft touch, PFS or stock lock are all worth it.. and to those tough guys that say their guns dont kick.. shoot my soft touch just once and tell me that your gun does not kick!! PJH

    Rumor is that the Soft Touch company is for sale.

    Don Carey, who first developed the system used by Soft Touch, is now retired from the stock recoil device business but is still selling the Carey Side-Sighter. I would have quit trapshooting 20 years ago without the Carey Comb.

    Clyde Cameron, developer of the "Clyde Slide" has a loyal group of users. All these guys should be getting some gratuity from the ammo companies since their customers are able to shoot lots more using these recoil dampening devices.

    yes, SS does offer a recoil reducer as a factory option.

    When I went to their facility in Parkton MD, that was one of the choices when I ordered the gun. They have 2 types I believe, one being magnetic.

    I didn't order it, and don't have any awareness of recoil having now shot the gun for 3 - 4 months. But, I also sent the barrel down to Tom Wilkinson to have the barrel tuned and have it fitted for screw-in chokes, and I remember him saying that he softens out an angle in the barrel, so perhaps that's why my gun doesn't recoil as others do.

    Interestingly, I didn't have to send him my entire gun -- just the barrel. Tom shoots a Silver Seitz, so he mounted the barrel on his gun when testing the pattern.
