Here is a photo of the new Auto-Buster installed on a Beretta 391 20 ga Youth shotgun. The finished length of pull is 12 3/8" !!! This is the only recoil system on the market that can allow these formerly unheard-of short LOPs on auto-loaders.
For the time being, I'll be doing all the installations myself. I need to do this to make sure I haven't missed something I need to know about, but it sure looks like a winner to me. I have enough parts to do about 30 right now and more on the way. Harry, I'd love to put one on your Benelli. Thanks!!
Ken have you tried it on the Beretta 303? It is a long recoil tube and most devices will not work. Just curious as i want one but have yet to find any that will work. Also have you got any plans to put a material in the gap to help make it more plaesing to the eye? I can send a 303 if you need a guinea pig. It may be your toughest challenge. Thanks
I've seen some Benellis have less than flawless cycling when not fired from the shoulder (in tactical matches). Some had problems with very soft recoil pads. I wonder if this device would affect cycling on a Benelli?
I have a Benelli located for a test (Harry) and we'll get one installed as soon as possible. Any of the recoil operated autos can be subject to cycling issues due to a loose gun mount. That said, however, I have installed Gracoils on a few different makes of them with long lop's (Benellis included) that functioned without incident. Since the Auto-Buster has a shorter stroke than a Gracoil, it may prove to be a non-issue.
