Even the most experienced shooters realize that recoil can change the way they shoot. Some shooters will develop a flinch because of the expected recoil, which reduces accuracy and can cause the butt to slam into the shoulder instead of allowing the entire body to absorb the recoil. Low recoil loads are not always an option because of the reduced range and impact. Another option is a recoil reducing stock.

Typically, the pistol grip on a shotgun with a shoulder stock is designed to help take up the recoil. However, some shooters may tend to squeeze the pistol grip too much to take the force off the shoulder. You do not want your hand to take the recoil you want your whole body to absorb the shock. Trying to hold back, the recoil with the pistol grip means your sight alignment has to be readjusted and your follow up shots will be slower. Some shooters feel more in control of the weapon when they have their hand wrapped around the pistol grip. In most cases, it comes down to personal preferences.

Now I can tell you more about this product because I finally had a chance to test it on the range. Small advice – try to shoot from the hip level first, this way you understand what recoil you need to control and will not smash your teeth with pistol grip as some guys on YouTube do.

Hogue Tamer Pistol Grip is one of the best pistol grips available for Remington 870. It is very comfortable to hold the overrubbed pistol stock thanks to the special texture. It is slip resistant and ergonomic. I must say that this coating performs very well even during very cold weather; it is not as cold as general plastic.

Magazine Auxiliary Defense System for 1911 Magazines

Review by Jonathan Paul

I was recently contacted by Vitaly of the Rem870 Blog to review a new firearm accessory created by M2 Corporation called the Magazine Auxiliary Defense System.

On initial inspection the MADS is a piece of injection-molded polymer with two mounting holes and a pair of aggressively-serrated edges. It weighs virtually nothing and mounts simply to the two holes located on the bottom of most (all?) 1911 magazines with two Philips-head screws.

How to shoot: you may hold it near you face like the ordinary shotgun with a stock but you have to hold it strong to prevent it from hitting you. In Close Quarters Battle you can shoot from the hip after some training.
