    Been starting to shoot doubles. Got a used 682 Gold E & put a PFS on it. Started off with release/release & just went to release/pull. Now how to disable the recoil functiuon of the PFS,because I think the recoil function is causing me to get out of the gun on the second shot. I got the PFS more for gun fit,not recoil reduction. If I ever get OK to good at doubles then I'll get a high end o/u & have a custom stock made. I'm living with my training wheels for now.

    Phil- For me, the PFS is great for doubles. The cheek piece does not move when the gun is shot. You could tighten th screw that compresses the washers to reduce the movement, but my suggestion would be to grip the gun tighter and just stay on the cheek piece.

    For me, also going to a release pull trigger would be going to a release flinch. But, not everyone is the same.

    You can tighten the adjustment ring on the washer tube to tighten the washers. The more you tighten, the less rearward travel and the less recoil reduction there is.

    I must say I had difficulty with the PFS I used for doubles. At the factory setting, the gun was moving forward as I was moving on the second target. It was most disconcerting. You can compress the springs so much there is no movement if you wish.

    I have found that to hold a very light cheek,or in other words,I do not apply heavy pressure to the cheek piece. I found that allows me to NOT fight the gun. It is much more of a pleasure to shoot,and I do not bounce around in shooting doubles.
    Just my way or opinion.

    On a PFS.. and doubles.. you walk a fine line adjusting compression and recoil reduction.. properly adjusted..I can shoot doubles better with my PFS..than a fixed stock.. It has proven to work well on bunker.. where the 2nd shot..if you need it.. is fractions of a second later.. But.. to each his own..

    I've found a 1 oz load on the first shot works well with the pfs.

    EE-I though I made it clear, I bought the PFS for gun fit. $750/$850.00 for a used PFS was alot cheaper than $3500./ for a custom stock on a gun that I'm not married to. Fit was the issue for me not recoil.
