    I shot a sport 2 for approx 1 year. More recoil than an 1100--however with reasonably powerful shells it worked great--never a poor cycle. It's recoil system didn't like light loads (I'm told a recoil spring change will fix that problem). Lots of adjustment on the stock (cast/drop) and very simple to clean.
    I added a prefit limbsaver pad and that helped tame it. They are not cheap,and you can buy 2 or 3 1100's for the same money--but I dont regret that I had one.
    My shooting was at skeet/sporting--not sure if it's your best buy for trap.
    As a rule ,I don't shoot the same gun for very long and while I shot the sport 2--I enjoyed it. PS--(I'm back to 1100's now).
    regards
    Bob
