Re: Recoil pads

I have used handguns for years , Contenders and Encores for the reason of a high school football injury . I dislocated my shoulder and it was never placed back in the socket correctly so scar tissue has formed there and makes shooting the heavy kickers a problem . I have a brand new Pachy decelerator on it right now and its not enough. I thought about doing a muzzle break on it but money is an issue, because of our hours being cut back at work right now the recoil pad is the cheaper option . I did buy a 7mm mag barrel with a muzzle break attached to it maybe I should change it out as the better option for recoil reduction .

Re: Recoil pads

While the Pachmyer pad doesn't suck up as much recoil as the others, its not going to be a huge difference from one to the next. A muzzle brake is going to do the most for you. My RUM is wearing a decellereator AND a Centershot Muscle Brake and it's like shooting a 308. As others have mentioned, the limbsaver pads seem softest but I stay away from them due to the deformation issues. You will notice a difference going to one of these other pads but I would recommend putting a brake on it if you really want to soften it up.
There's no time quite like trigger time! .................................................. .................................................. .................../\.
