Recoil reducer

Postby smuckers » Thu Feb 28, 2013 8:54 pm

Have any of you ever used one. I installed an Edwards recoil reducer on my Browning A5. I'll test it and see how it works in a couple of days. I'm 71 years old now and that old 50 year Browning kicks worse than it used to.

You know they do seem to kick a tad more the older they get..........

When I first bought that Browning I could shoot 10 boxes a day dove hunting and it did't bother me.

Interesting.. I've never heard of them.

How does the Edwards RECOIL REDUCER® work?

From their website:
The Edwards RECOIL REDUCER® provides mechanical recoil control. It consists of a piston between two springs. The springs are of different ratios, with the strong one at the rear. The recoil forces the piston against the strong spring, which in turn forces it against the weak spring. This reaction will happen several times for every shot fired.

Shot it this morning. It doesn't kick as bad. They say it takes a few shots to get full effect. I shot it about 10 times and it helps.
