i just took one apart, what do the two little cylinders in side it do ? i can see the 3 springs doing something to knock the recoil down, but the cylinders seem very weak

They're small hydraulic cylinders. They work just like the hydraulic shocks on a car or truck. While the springs do most of the work in absorbing the recoil, the hydraulic cylinders smooth things out.

I've got two A400 guns and both have the Kick-off option on them. They really help on a long day at the trap range.

The springs don't really do all that much. The hydraulic cylinders do most of the work. Hydraulic cylinders can be set so that they have little resistance when pushed or pulled slowly but do a lot of work when speed is applied to the cylinders. Those two little hydraulic cylinders are precision pieces of equipment. There is no way you can move the cylinders with your hands as fast as they are moved by recoil.

hmmmmm ,how do they come out?
I had mine off yesterday. The two cylinders are part of an assembly that includes the springs. I don't think it can be dis-assembled.
I bought this gun from Cole Gunsmithing. Call them and they should be able to answer any question you may have.
