Recoil reducers.

Q Are there any disadvantages to placing a recoil reducer in a shotgun stock?

A It will definitely add extra weight, which will in turn alter the balance of the gun. Also, it will often require modification to the gun in making a suitable opening or cavity in the buttstock to house the recoil reducer. If not done properly, this could lead to damage to the stock. Proper placement of most stock-mounted recoil reducers is not necessarily as simple and straightforward as some folks think. At times, it can be very challenging. By the way, I've seen more than one shotgun buttstock damaged by movement of an unsecured recoil reducer as the gun is fired.
