    Looking for opinions. If I was to put a gracoil or similiar type of recoil management system on an XT would it increase/decrease the value of the gun? Would I regain the cost if I were to sell it? Or would I be better off to just buy a new gold with the factory recoil reduction system on it? Thanks

    Todd: That is a difficult question to answer. If you find a shooter that is looking for an XT with a reducer on it; you have an interested buyer. Of course there are many out there who do not want a reducer or want a different type of reducer. Therefore no real interest from these people. I find it very hard to believe that you will regain the cost of the reducer if you sell it. Again, if you find someone who is looking for a setup like that; you might regain "some" of the cost. That being said I would find the best deal I could on the XT. Then you might consider having a reliable stock man install a reducer and possibly an adjustable comb if the gun doesn't have one. (Ask the people who advertise here) Good Luck. Ed

    If you add your cost of after market "improvements" into your selling price, you'll have a very limited market.

    This is not only something you want, it's something you need, so consider it an expense.
