    I like it, little pricey for me at this point, but I like it, that shoulder pad looks substantially more comfortable than most others I've looked at...

    It is very solid. I got it for 80.00 with shipping included as I have an FFL03 and get a discount.

    As soon as I shoot it I will post a range report.

    Doesn't look like much recoil absorption. If you fire it at the shoulder it must kick like a mule. :P


    Btw, check ebay for mossberg stocks. I've seen ATI tactical stocks on there for $35.

    Recoil control is more in how you hold the gun and stand as I learned from Ghostrider...

    ATI has this disorder with making the LOP about 2" too long. Unless you are 6' 3" or taller, if you buy one, plan on it being unwieldy, or plan on somehow chopping it down like I did with my ATI top folder. :?

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    Nose over toes.

    Besides, that recoil pad doesn't look all that bad. Is that really a 14" lop?

    On second thought, it looks closer to 15 or 16".

    Sweeet.

    Just so ya know Ghostrider. The one for the 870 is currently on backorder until the first week in April.

    So maybe before then you can try mine out and see if you like it before we order one...

    The knoxx spec-ops is great a great stock. When i make my MI pistol It'll be with the Knoxx cop stock. Only downside IMO is that its top folding and not side folding. but that is only a small downside.


    GREAT recoil reduction.

    Can't do it they made the Knoxx too long folded on purpose to be a MI Pistol.

    It is like 31 inches folded with a 18.5 in barrel.

    Doesn't it have to be under 26" to be a "pistol"? At least in Michigan? I am unclear on this, I asked a Lt. and he looked up the laws while I was on the phone with him, while I had a ruller in my hand.

    A shotgun 18 inch barrel or Rifle 16 inch barrel between 26 and 30 inches are still a rifle or shotgun under federal law however under MI law they must be registered as a pistol. This means they can be carried open BC they are registered or concealed under the authority of your CPL. This also means they can be kept loaded in the car.

    no, under 26" is a Short-Barreled Shotgun by Federal law, whereas Michigan law states that under 30" is a pistol.

    Therefore a shotgun between 26" and 30" in length would be considered a regular shotgun by Federal law, whereas would be considered a pistol by Michigan law.

    ETA: Autosurgeon is faster than me :-(

    But I'll leave my reply anyway since its worded different.

    Well I took it to the range and ran it! It is just as comfortable to shoot as with a regular stock. The fact that it has a real recoil pad makes a huge Diff!

    As for the stock it is nice and tight and locks up well in both positions.
