Yeah if the recoil is too much for me my first option will definitely be a recoil reducer or just adding weight to it to reduce the recoil. haha ok I will take your advice and get that sissy pad! Is yours scoped? And what sort of loads are you running through it? Apart from the recoil are you happy with it?You’d better get the sissy pad and much more. I have one and have only shot it once from the bench and wow it kicks. Planning an Edwards Recoil Reducer if I decide to keep it.
