    Those Guerini

    I have shot three Guerini shotguns now all trap models 1 O/U and 2 unsingles and I thought all three kicked like a mule anyone else have this experience?

    I thought the recoil was fine. It more than likely is the way the gun fits you.

    I agree with goose2. It is how well (or poorly) the gun fits OR the shooting form (gun mount, stance, body posture) you are using that is responsible for the objectionable felt recoil.

    Right...must be a bad fit between you and the gun.

    Very soft, the gun is not fitting you.

    I have a Summet trap and 2 sporting CG. No recoil problem. They are one of the softest shooting recoil guns I have.
    You have to get the gun to fit you well.

    Not really. Put factory reducer in butt stock and add small strip of lead between barrel were forearm goes on. It will balance out the gun with very little recoil. Factory release triggers are excellent and high rib a pleasure to shoot.

    I had the exact opposite impression after shooting my new Summit top single, kicks a lot less than my Beretta.

    CG owners often think they are the brightest of any group of people.
    They found a gun with fancy engraving and good wood and it doesnt kick and guess what? Its inexpensive

    Geez as they pat themselves on the back they say--- man am I smart to have made this discovery

    I have no dog in this race but I had a old SKB o/u im and full and thought it shot ok not soft but not a hammer either. I was shooting it one day and a friend said lets see if my unsingle SKB barrel will fit your gun and it dropped right on and my gunsmith said it had proper head space so I could shoot it. It of course had the bigger bore barrel and my old barrels were standard bores and after shooting them back to back I could not believe the difference my old gun kicked much harder I never thought my old barrels were kickers but back to back was a eye opener for me I sold the gun shortly afterward. So is the CG a bigger bore gun because it makes a big difference for me same with Beretta with the optima barrels I have one of each and the Optima is softer shooting.

    Gun weight is a key comparison in resistance to recoil. The direct recoil against your shoulder is contingent on pitch, width of the recoil pad and the composition of the pad. It's an individual thing. I've shot CG's that kicked the snot of me, and I've shot some that didn't. I have a 3 barrel combo. The 20 ga. kicked. Changed the pitch, added a Kick eez. No problem, fixed it. Got more of the pad on my shoulder.

    What does CG weigh? What does a K-80 weigh? What does a P-gun weigh? When we know this, we can talk.

    I agree with Gene---K-guns are the softest---I have tried them all---K-gun weight 8 lbs---Don't need any recoil reduction---Just mount and shoot---sjb---

    The softest is a 391 that weight 12 lbs with a recoil reducer....

    But... if it don't fit perfectly, it's still going to bite.

    I have owned a SKB unsingle, A Beretta Unsingle, A Browning unsingle, A CG unsingle and now a Kolar Max T/A. Of coarse the Kolar is the softest shooter out of the ones I have owned and the CG was next in line. It isn't about this gun being a softer shooter than the other, It's about how a gun fits you and of coarse the weight has something to do with that also.
    I know a lady who has a new Blaser and that thing kicked the hell out of her until she had a recoil reducer installed. Go figure.
    You must be on crack if you think a gun is no good if it kicks. It only means it isn't wright for you.If they can be made to fit they can be made a softer shooter.
