I've heard some good reviews about this stock for my Mossberg 500...Then, I also heard some issues about the leveling being awkward, and people hitting there nose/cheek/face when they fire it...Are they just idiots?

Are there any other good recoil reducing stocks that I should look in to before purchasing this one?

Have one on my Mossberg, the recoil reducing type.
No issues at all, never hit myself either.
I put 600 rounds through in one day training with Weapons Training School and no bruises!

I use one on my Rem 870. 100 rounds in a session is no problem, never hit myself either.

I would like to get one for my Mossberg as well for sure, possibly the rifles too.
Where's the best price for these?

:D

I have heard a complaint that there is a "pin on the side that gets jarred out after awhile of shooting." What exactly does this mean, and is this just an isolated incident or common on Knoxx spec ops? Can anyone with moderate to excessive use with this product chime it? Thanks

Just earlier today I found one in stock for only $110. I checked back literally 10 minutes later, and they were out of stock...Seeing that as knoxx is out of stock, they probably won't be having any available for a while now. Any suggestions on a reputable place that has em?

on another post, I said the same thing about most places being sold out. i had ordered it straight from knoxx but they were backordered until second week of June. another member said check ebay. i canceled my order from knoxx and I bought one for $109 on ebay and received it 3 days later (5/30). talk about fast shipping!. Brand new but can't install it because I need to get one of those ball end allen wrenches :rolleyes: hopefully i can find it at home depot..:D

I found that a long 3/16 screwdriver worked to install mine in place of the allen wrench.

Here is the ebay seller I bought mine from. This one is with the Hogue forend so its a little more exp. The one I purchased was only the specops.

As I mentioned earlier, even Knoxx is backordered until mid June :rolleyes:. I couldn't wait so I bought it off ebay.

I just got it installed. I can't wait to try it out this weekend shooting clays :cool2:

Yeah no bumped noses or anything, I don't know why someone would tell you that. Same for a "pin" that comes out??? No pins on mine, just a bolt that mounts to the rear of the receiver.

I got mine used on gunbroker for quite a bit less than retail. Just keep checking the auction sites or simply do a google search using their "products" category: http://www.google.com/products

I have a stock 590 12ga. and a stock 500 20ga. and I don't have any issues like that with either of them. I guess they fit me ok. I'm almost a midget too.

Lets see by now - I probably I have over 2500+ rounds through my Mossberg 500 w/SpecOps.

No issues; nothing gets loose except the main lug bolt you use initially to attach it to the gun (which they tell you use put locktite on - but I never have); every 500 rounds or so; I put a crank on that lug bolt. (I got my set of ball-end wrenches at OSH for $5)

Next, leveling? well.. the comb height gets modified, when I use my 18.5" barrel w/bead sight - the height of the SpecOps is too high; when I get around to it - replacing the bead sight with a rifle blade would be appropriate.

However, when I use my slug barrel w/cantilever mounted scope; the comb height is perfect.

I've never nosed; or faced myself... I have cheeked and scoped myself (forehead).

With my slug barrel; 1st time I ever shot 3" 600gr magnum slugs; I scoped myself in the forehead - rubber on the scope softened the blow; as did my safety glasses... regardless there was blood. I then added an aftermarket product with BIG CUSHY rubber on the scope... (http://www.quakeinc.com/opt7.html)

But I've never choked up on the scope by mistake like that again - because I also got a better scope with longer eye relief. (SuperSniper)

As for cheeking... I ordered a 2nd SpecOps w/Powerpack. If you really do rest your cheek on the Powerpack; it will slap you a bit when you shoot.

:) You must be a really big guy...

My buddy's sister - 5'4" 120lbs shot several sub 4" groups at 50 yards w/mine in a tank top... no issues... later in the day she shot an unmodified Remmy 12g - she was back to my gun the rest of the day. :D

really? wow man... I've done weekend shoots of 300+ rounds per day; and never had any type of shoulder fatigue or pain.

You sure you got the regular SpecOps? Or did you get the SpecOPS NRS? (No Recoil Supression).

btw; on my end - I also called Knoxx; and had them send me the optional Limbsaver pad; my gun even with magnum loads for hours on end; is hard to tell the difference - vs. - reduced recoil tactical buckshot.

I was able to try out the Knoxx for the first time since installing it. I just have one word for it - AWESOME!!! My first time with the 870 with the stock stock, I had big time bruises on my shoulder. Second time shooting the 870 with the knoxx, not a mark on my shoulder. Its fricken awesome. Best $$ I've ever spent and well worth it. I felt really comfortable with it and did much better at the traps. My wife, whos very petite and bruises easily even shot it and she didn't get any bruises. A BIG THUMBS UP FOR KNOXX! ;)

Hello? Were you perhaps using the Knoxx stock that does not reduce recoil? The Knoxx spec ops reduces recoil almost 90% -- a CORPSE could feel the difference/ I'm 6'1' and 350 lbs and a regular 870 KICKS -- I've shot HUNDREDS of rounds out of the Knoxx with a tee shirt and no bruise, no soreness. Unless you had a broken one, your experience 100% makes no sense. It's not about how "tough" or strong you are, it's PHYSICS. The Knoxx has a SHOCK ABSORBER in the stock -- a regular gun doesn't. When I use it on a Mossberg, Sometimes I forget to pump because it doesn't feel like t he gun went off! Anyone that gets HIT by the back of the receiver has crept their face up WAY further than they would shoot a regular shotgun. I may not know OLLs, but shotguns have been a huge part of my life for 30 years.

The KNOXX is the first "recoil reducing" accessory I heard touted in a magazine that actually performed BETTER than the hype. I brought two Mossbergs and two 870s to the range, one of each with a Knoxx and let some guys who were students up at ITTS shoot them. After a few rounds the "non-KNoxx" guns were put down and not picked up again until they had to be packed up to leave the range. Now BLACKHAWK owns the stock.

Check out the LACK of muzzle rise --

I'm looking into getting an 870 with the SpecOps stock and maybe a powerpak. Any lefties out there experience any problems with the combo? Also is the shell carrier/cheek on the powerpak reversible for lefties?


Thanks

it's actually possible to run the powerpak and the mesa shell carrier... i wonder if that's too tacticacool haha

You can never be too tacticool.;)

What's your experience so far with the setup?

i feel i want to get rid of the power pack. it makes the set up non ambi and it raises my chipmunk cheeks too much. otherwise it holds stuff pretty well.

maybe it'll work out for you better?

Just call Knoxx; ask them to sell you just the rear portion of the stock - then you can interchange whenever you want.

As the PowerPack comb height is perfect w/Optics.

However the SpecOps w/o PowerPack is perfect comb height for a rifle blade sight.

yeah i think it'd be great for an eotech. i thought it would be pretty good with my ghost rings but i was lil bit wrong. i mean i can still aim, just not as comfortable as i think the powerpak would be with an eotech
