I find that most of the time, recoil problems are a result of an improper gun mount. I would suggest that you seek the assistance of a certified coach who is knowledgeable in gunfitting.

I watched a well-known shooting coach (English by birth, now in America) flinching on some FITASC shots due to vision issues, which also seemed to increase his felt recoil now and again. Very bizarre - but he still shot an 89...........

i am past my prime. many (like me,) love the game so much, they will change, buy, and install anything to make them shoot like they did when they were 21.
sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt.
i cant figure it out for the life of me how young healthy kids who dont know what pain is...have to have all the old feeble guy inventions on their guns right from the start.
heck...see the lead pull the trigger. old school.
but nope...gotta have that gizmo and be one of the guys.

Another aspect in this regard is gun fit. Actual recoil is reduced via low velocity, low payload ammo in a very heavy gun - that is Newton. All of the recoil reducing devices tens more to help with perceived recoil, aka, "kick", which is a function of gun fit. And gun fit is not putting the stock in the crook of your arm or just shouldering the gun in the store

Gun fit will decrease recoil for sure but if you look at all the best shooters they almost all use a recoil devise of some kind. Shooting as much as most people do it makes sense to reduce recoil as much as possible the less recoil the longer and better you will shoot. I need to say here I do not use a recoil device on a automatic gun they shoot soft enough as designed. I prefer the Gracoil or Rad have used the fluid type but they leak after prolonged use. I also have some Hydo coil guns that use compressed air that I like but they are pretty expensive. It really depends on how much you shoot and how heavy a load you shoot. 1 1/8 kicks harder than a 1 oz and 7/8 less than 1 oz and the fps compounds that the faster the more recoil. I also know that a bigger bore has less recoil than a smaller one. That is my take on the subject you opinion may differ and I respect that.

686's don't have the spacer soldered between the barrels and doesn't have the ingraving a 687 does. They are a little lighter so kick just a bit more. Not as good a resale as a 687. 686's have a urethane finish instead of an oil finish. shows scratches easily and is a pain to repair/refinish. Both great guns.
