need to reduce recoil for m-1 field


Recommended Posts

the two ways i have heard to reduce recoil on the m-1 field is to install a precision fit recoil pad by limbsaver or a benelli mercury recoil suppressor. which installation will benefit me more or should i try both.


the limbsaver rep. told me that their recoil pad for the m-1 field reduces felt recoil by 40-50%. is this true?


the benelli rep. told me their mercury recoil suppressor weighs 11 ounces and reduces felt recoil by only 15-18%. the only drawback i see to this method is that it will increase the weight of the m-1 to nearly eight pounds, thus defeating the purpose of having a lighter gun.


i would appreciate some input on this subject.

I own both devices and use them on my SBE.


The gun is a tank with the mercury recoil reducer, but it seems to help some.


The Limbsaver fits very nice and seems to work fine, but I really cannot vouch for the 50% number.


I have heard that the X-Coil is the top recoil pad, but they only come in grind to fit sizes and I just cannot see paying the gunsmith $100+- to put on a pad when the Limbsaver fits perfectly.
