    Which of these two recoil reducers do you prefer & why? I'm looking to have one or the other installed on a trap gun. Thanks!

    Ken Rucker for years installed more RAD's than anyone. He saw the good and bad points it had. He made the Bump- Buster to be a better unit. I have one of the first ones he put out. I've tried them all. Go with Ken you won't be disappointed.

    I have both a RAD II and a Bumpbuster. Check your private messages for my opinion and recommendation.

    Never having a Rad, I can't say about them. But, I have a Bumbuster on my Perazzi, and it really does work great.

    I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.

    Now I have never tried a Bumpbuster but I have tried two Rad 2's from Greg Hissem and I am very happy. Don't know why I would try something different.

    I'm sure Ken has a wonderful unit with the Bumpbuster.

    I would buy another Rad from "Hissem" in a heartbeat.

    Good luck!

    Hissem put a RAD on my gun and I like it very much. In fact, I inquired about putting another on a Beretta semi yesterday. He said it can't be done due to lack of space in the stock! Have no experience with Bumpbuster.

    If you don't have room for a RAD, call Ken, he just released his AUTO-BUSTER. It works and will fit where there is limited room.

    Ken installed a "Bump Buster" on my BT 100 and I am very satisfied. Perfect install job. Realy took the edge off the recoil.
