I just bought a new Browning XT and I was wondering if anyone could tell me if they use the chamber model reducer in their o/u when shooting singles? Does it reduce recoil significantly? Are there any drawbacks to using this in the top barrel? Thanks Dave

I have C&H (4 oz. model) or Staub (6 oz. model) installed in several 870's including both field guns and trap guns.

The 870 has a hole in the butt stock for the stock bolt that makes installation very easy.

The added weight of itself helps tame recoil and I suspect that the mercury in an enclosed baffeled cylinder also helps.

At any rate, recoil is reduced a little and the 2 3/4 dram 1 1/8 oz loads I shoot are very managable in an 8 1/2 lb. 870 trap grade.

One benefit with the weight in the stock it balances out the weight of the 30" barrel and makes (to me) the muzzle to feel a little lighter.

Please note that if you shoot 1 1/4 oz. at 1330 fps you will feel it.
