    I installed one in my son's 687 SPII combo just to balance out the weight I added to the barrels. I placed a C&H eight-ounce reducer in the bottom of and against the front of that large opening and ran a wood screw into the bottom of the stock at about a 45-degree angle so that the head of the screw holds the reducer in place. Just be careful not to use too long a screw!

    I encountered the same problem with a Winchester Select Energy Trap Monte Carlo. Filled the space and also held the "Edwards" in place with properly cut lengths of 7/8" hardwood dowel stock and a plastic card slid in alongside to hold it tight.

    OTOH, I've also recently got one of the Etchen unsingle 687 combos, at first it whacked me in the cheek a little and the toe dug into my chest muscle. I increased the pitch while cutting the stock for installation of a Jones adjuster and kick-eez pad. Made it such a pussy-cat to shoot I don't think I'll even bother having it ported. Suggest you try these things before you bother with the recoil reducer?

    Hey Gingerdutch, What was the number of the combo you got from Etchens. I have been checking them out on there web site. There is some fine looking guns.

    Put 8 oz of shot in a baggie and stuff it in the hole, backed up with anything to keep it firmly in place. You're done.
