The stock of the shotgun is truly the most attractive part of the weapon. Not only is it the most noticeable when you first see the weapon, but it also provides the shooter with certain benefits which help their stability and accuracy. Obviously, not all stocks are made of the same material or cut into the same size. There are all kinds of sizes, materials, and shapes with the stock choices on the market these days. You just need to be able to figure out which stock is going to be comfortable for your body type and preference. However, if you are upgrading another shotgun by replacing its factory stock with a better-quality stock, you have to make sure the new stock you purchase is compatible with the model of your shotgun. Otherwise, the stock won’t be able to fit properly onto the receiver. Sometimes, it is recommended that you purchase a stock from the same company that made your shotgun because this will increase its chances of being fully compatible.

Review of the Blackhawk Knoxx SpecOps Stock Gen III for Remington 870

This is new review of the Knoxx SpecOps Stock, Forend and PowerPak. It has completely new photos and video.

This stock is one of the best choices for shooters which just bought their shotgun. This stock compensates recoil and you can spend more time on the range. Later when you become experienced shooter you may decide to install simple stock without recoil compensating systems. I have used Knoxx SpecOps stock for a long time and really liked it.

As I wrote earlier, Mesa Tactical Shotshell Carrier doesn’t work with long forends, so I had to choose the shorter one.

I have planned to use Hogue forend but when I have tested it on the shooting range it turned out that it is not a good idea to use Hogue forend and Knoxx stock. When shotgun moves backward after the shot Hogue forend moves together with your skin and it hurts. This happens because Hogue forend is overmolded and allows very good grip. It is fantastic but not with Knoxx stock.

Limbsaver Recoil Pad for Knoxx Stock Review: should you use it?

I like the Knoxx SpecOps stock because it reduces recoil as advertised. But I have always wondered if it is possible to reduce recoil even more. This weekend I have tested Knoxx SpecOps stock with Limbsaver Recoil Pad. I haven’t noticed much difference. So, I think it is not necessary to change the standard Knoxx recoil pad.
