    2 pounds of lead, 1 lb in magazine tube and 1 lb in butt stock. Very effective. HMB

    Adding weight is effective in felt recoil reduction, however, if the weight is not evenly distributed the balance of the gun may become a real problem! There are several mechanical and hydraulic systems on the market that work.

    Here's one of the BEST recoil reducing systems available. The Soft Touch system is available from Shooter's Emporium for about $800. EuroJoe has this Model 12 stock for sale for $495 shipped. It has the recoil reduction system already installed. Just screw it on and you're good to go. I have one on my
    Remington 1100 and there is virtually NO FELT RECOIL!

    Contact me or EuroJoe if you're interested.

    Use both HMB and Joe's ideas on your model 12, a pound each way may be too much for your taste but I like the pounds idea with the reducing stock!! Hap

    What is length of pull on Eurojoe's stock? Or is it adjustable?
    Thanks, Gary Owen

    Gary,

    I can't measure the LOP exactly without having the stock mounted on a gun,
    but it looks like 14 3/8" with the pad that's on it. Adjusting the LOP is
    very easily done by replacing the pad with anything from 1/4" to 1 1/2" thick with virtually no change in felt recoil.

    That's one of the nice benefits of having a Soft Touch recoil reducer!

    If you plan on keeping the gun for years to come like I do,have a G-squared recoil system put on the stock.I had one put on my m-12 last fall and love it.You just add the amount of air to the cylinder to what you feel suits your style and load being used.The drawback is it cost me more than I paid for the gun,that is the reason for my first sentence.

    Put a mercury reducer or lead weight in the stock draw bolt hole, lengthen the forcing cone and don't shoot Dynamite.
    Lite 1oz. loads[1140 to 1170 FPS] or 2 3/4 dram 1 1/8 loads if you really think you need that much shot.
    Or if you are brave like me 7/8 oz. loads.
    I have been doing this now with my 1955/2 pin rib trap gun for 5 yrs.
    The factory 33 thousandths choke will break any target at just about any distance.

    You can also put a mercury reducer in the magazine tube- puts more weight out front and helps the swing dynamics and balance, especially if you already have one in the stock. I've had this setup in my Model 12 for years.
