    That is too easy, it's the one that weighs the most.

    If your Ljutic fits you correctly, it will be a soft shooter.


    My Pro3 weighs in at 9.5 lbs and fits very well, so there no discernable kick to it, no matter if I am shooting 3 dram loads.


    The gun is so well balanced, it belies the actual weight of the gun, because there is 4.75 lbs of weight in each hand and feels like it weighs 6 lbs.

    I got my Ljutic from Citadel on this site. It's a X73 and has a JS Air Cushion
    stock. It's the softest I've ever shot.
    2 3/4 or 3 dram loads feel the same.
    It also fits me perfectly which is very important.
    It shoots between 70/30 to 80/20.
    Will pattern in a couple of weeks.
    Last Ljutic I shot was one of the original mono guns. Also
    a soft shooter.

    My curiosity is more toward the designs engineered to reduced recoil. Dyno, Dyna, etc. Thanks rich

    Rich, I Have A Dyna-Kick That Shoots A 12 gauge Shell Like It was A 28 Gauge. I Have Been told That Not all Of them were This Way But, I Have Shot (5) Of them And They ALL Are Light Recoil. Joe W.

    The thrust hammer of the dynokick was taken from the space gun. At least some part of the physical recoil with that design is taken up by the 1 pound hammer being driven forward with a 20 pound spring. As I recall, it (recoil reduction) was a part of a patent.

    Spacegun then Dynokick. But a Mono with a PFS has very little kick. I've even seen a Dynokick with a PFS.

    I just bought a Ljutic mono gun and although it's a pound lighter than my Kolar I feel no difference between the two. Both fit me very well and the Kolar is a pleasure to shoot. So far very happy witht he Ljutic.

    Like JBML, I shoot both a Ljutic (SLE Pro) and a Kolar T/S, the Ljutic at the 16 and the Kolar for handicap. No difference in recoil that I can feel. They are both great guns.

    The Selka. Which is like Spaqce gun. It is also the easest Ljutic to shoot well I have ever shot. The LTX with 34" lite bbl set up with a correctly fitted stock is a lighter shooting model. I think it also has to do with balance as mentioned above.

    What about the Bi-Matic? The one I shot was very easy on the torso!

    The heaviest will have the least felt recoil as Johnny said!
