shotgun stocks

5 posts in this topic

I have a basic question about shotguns that I can't find an answer to despite how simple it probably is. Why do some shotguns have that full stock/butt but others don't have this stock and appear to have the same grip that a pistol does?

Is this just an aesthetic preference or does having the full stock help with accuracy or recoil and stuff like that? It would appear that the stock helps as people seem to rest it on the front of their shoulder when they aim if I'm assuming correctly.

Actually, on my 870, I have both, with this ShurShot stock. I think it just depends on your preference and how you want to hang on.

Depends on personal preference...

If we are talking pistol grip only, I actually prefer the Raptor grip over a traditional pistol grip nowadays. Just feels a little more comfortable. The brace setup on my TAC-14 uses a regular pistol grip, but I do have a standard grip, if need be.

For stocks, I like something like a Magpul stock. Rather have something more inline with the receiver/barrel.

Shotgun stocks are a wide area of exploration.  On estate-quality shotguns such as the Krieghoff K-80 one can drop 5 grand plus for just a stock & fore end upgrade to a nicer wood :)   Adjustable combs, adjustable butts, everything you need to get the perfect fit.  And shotgun FIT is everything!

    • I apologize if my posts were taken the wrong way. But yours were also much more adversarial than they needed to be.  I suggest we drop it since further posts like that on either side don’t help anything.    As for Reloaderz. I hope they do well. NJ needs more ranges, of any and all types. Anything to expand the positive visibility and push back against the perceived stigma firearms have in this state. 
    •  that writer should be that writer should be embarrassed, you don't pick 3 handguns with a life of less than three years and claim that they are part of the best ever. I'm absolutely going to agree with the Glock just in terms of shears numbers in use reliability and other variables but the Sig the Smith & Wesson and the Heckler LOL  did you read the did you read the article? They gave the reasoning why and hard to argue against it actually.
    • Wow, vaguley remember it... was it when the gun first came out? Generally though, I think the Neos, as cool as it is, was too "atypical" in a crowded marketplace dominated by the Buckmark, Ruger and to lower extent the S&W Victory/22a models. Once you go into higher end, like SW 41 and dedicated 22lr competition guns, no contest there. 




    • Oh Rosey!! You're my fav!
      I had to clarify because my phone was blowing up with notifications because I missed one word: "field" before strip.
      The banter won't scare me off, I'm a little more thick skinned than that! In response to spending more quality time together, I'll only agree if it means busting clays!

      And a happiest of thanksgivings to your beautiful wife and family and of course that fluffy kitten of yours!

      Love,
      Rhi

    • 5 best?  In terms of what? If it was significance to gun industry, yes, would agree. But best from shooting and commercial success?  I would have an issue with the HK VP70 and P38. It is tough to argue the significance of the Luger, BHP, Beretta 92 or the Glock 17. I would probably add the HK P7 PSP to that list and would easily prefer it over the VP70.
