The Knoxx stock sounds like something to look into. Then again, how much does a manly redneck like myself really need one of those for $100+? I will say that I believe a solid rubber stock with pad might be better than the factory plastic injection molded one because of it's light weight. But seriously sway me to the Knoxx for $50 more. Is it really that good? Since I've already put my 870 through the paces and am satisfied, I figure the range usage will be dropping off dramatically. Pretty much just occasionally or just to see my friends take a pounding for fun with it. Practiced with full power loads and I'll be keeping it ready to go with the same or some of the low recoil loads.

thats why the 870 is one of the most popular shottys!
You read (from multiple sources) about decades of 870 use without a single FTF. We're talking thousands of rounds in all conditions. I know there are many, MANY loyal Mossburg, Benelli, (etc., etc.,) fans and rightfully so...but you almost never hear a bad tale of Remington 870 performance. Now there might be a shotgun someone prefers more, but it's a rare individual who is worried about being undergunned carrying an 870.
There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.
To the Knoxx stock- you can get similar effect by using the shorter LOP, but if shooting from "non-traditional" positions, I've heard many say the Knoxx was well worth it. If you like the straight (non-PG) stock, and believe you might actually have to fire from a behind-cover position (vs. fending off the BG pesky 9mm rounds by thrusting out one's manly breast) it would be worth looking at.

The new Desert recon sure is a soft shooter. I was surprised. It has this special brake and a nice soft cushion on the Speed Feed stock and those are surprisingly effective with Fiocchi Low recoil buckshot loads.
I was trying to get some decent pictures of it today but have not quite got the right light yet in the right place. This is some I was able to get so far.

I am about to agree with him.
And to think I got it mainly because it was cool...
