Does anyone know what the LOP is on these guns straight from the factory? & if so, how to adjust them? Also, how do the springs work in the Rucker recoil reduction unit? I understand there are medium, light, & heavy springs, but how would one gauge what they'd prefer the recoil reduction to be?
Thanks in advance for the replies!

Yes....probably 90% of target shooters use the medium springs. Remington is scheduled to build 1200 more syn. Competitions this year

I am in the 90% ;) I use the medium springs.

1 1/8 oz 1150 or 1200 fps feel like \i am shooting a 28 gage with the medium springs.

I don't feel any movement or cycling from the system, recovery from recoil feels instantaneous to me, it is like shooting a fixed stock w/o the recoil.

My problem is, it is tough to shoot anything else.

Scheduling 1200 for this year is great, IMHO, they will sell every one of them; IMHO, this is one of the greatest bargains and value for money in target shotguns out there.

LOP on mine measured 14.75" with the Supercell recoil pad. Using Kens medium springs and a solid Winchester pad reduced it to 14". The Rucker system is the perfect match for this wonderful gun......... Larry

Do 1 0z. Shells have any trouble ejecting from your gun, as opposed to 1 1/8? (That's with of course the ammo that we shoot @ the club).

My gun will cycle 7/8 oz and 1 oz with no problems. About 1/2 of what I shoot is the 1290 fps White Box Estates or my 1250 fps reloads....... Larry

I really like mine. I do have to kind of get used to the extra weight of the pro bore barrel after a long winter layoff, but the good side is I get to go to Tucson in February to get in shape.

If they are building some 1200 for the 2015 year, how do you get one fresh-off the factory floor. you know sometimes you just want a "spanky" new one. A friend of mine just bought one, and I can't wait to get a chance to shoot it!

You will NEVER shoot a nicer gun. Mine cycles anything I put in it, load or hull type. When I got mine two years ago, I looked at the springs, felt them, and thought this is a sales promo and doubted it's usefulness ---WRONG!!!! Mr. Rucker put exactly what needed to make this a very special gun. I, too, use the medium springs. This gun is a sleeper!!!

This is without a doubt the best bargain going (for what you get) out there today! IMHO. Mine since finding my desired POI (60/40) the comb has a bit of a wiggle to it, though not very much. The posts are screwed tight but still have a bit of play in them, the comb is screwed tight to the posts where there is no movement. I'd say probably less than 1/8" movement either way the back post moves. Since tightening the comb down, (to date) it hasn't loosened off or gotten any worse than that. I'm not sure of a way to tighten the back post anymore without messing with something. I'm still shooting consistently (for me) high scores with the gun though!

If you buy just the stock and forend set with the bumpbuster, that's
$400. Pick up a nice used 1100 with the old style fixed choke trap barrel for $550 to $650. Sell the wood for $ 200 to $250. Now for $850 tops you have a gun that will shoot just like the Competition with a much better barrel than the too heavy ProBore barrel.
