For almost 20 years, I shot the same gun. A year ago I decided I wanted a new gun, didn't want to alter the great fixed chokes on my old gun.

Ended up with a Max Lite. Absolutely love it. Love it so much I'm buying another one. No doubt about it.....I've gone round the bend!

Easy to do with the Max Lite. I bought one last year and love it. My older Kolar Standard Skeet has been relegated to backup duty. My Beretta 687 SP with tube set has become a "loaner."

The Max Lite is a great gun, indeed.

I really like my Max-lite Sporting with the ramped tapered rib. Great balance, lite perceived recoil with target loads, fast pointing and sooo well made. Kolar has a fine product and they provide great customer service. OldSkeeter, shoot well:)

I purchased a Max Lite in January, I have some adjusting to do myself, due to shooting recoil reducers for the past 10 years.

Everyone that shoots the gun raves about the lack of recoil. I plan to stick with 1oz loads and work hard for a year with the gun as is.

It also is a 32" gun, thats a change for me also.

I treated myself to a retirement gift of a Kolar Max Lite skeet gun with the 12 gauge barrel and the carrier barrel. Took a little getting used to but what a nice gun. The weight and balance with all four gauges are nearly identical. Sure is fun to shoot.

I have a max skeet 30" with carrier barrel .
I can't get used to how heavy the barrels feel.
Does anyone know if max lite barrels feel any different

Yes. All the earlier Kolars I had shot seem hopelessly overweight. That was the 1st thing I noticed about the Max Lite. Less overall weight; less forward bias.

The 2d thing I noticed was lack of felt recoil. This really surprised me. In fact I thought I was dreaming. So , b/c I was shooting a demo gun at Nationals that Kolar had brought for folks to try I secured a target key and went shooting. Way over 150 shells before I could no longer think I was being fooled. It had LESS felt recoil than my Perazzi that was 1/2 lb heavier. My wife noticed that I had no problem shooting from low gun (Fitasc) and did not see-saw my bbls getting the gun up.

I bought a new gun , had Kolar folks fit it. BTW , this was not a sham fitting. We shot a lot more targets and tweaked the stock some to get me in the most comfortable place. I went out and shot the 100 bird Fitasc even at Nationals and beat my personal best by 3 targets. Last year I beat that old best by one more target.

I also got the carrier bbls and the tubes and shot them to personal bests in small gauge Fitasc winning 4 punches in those events.

I had one issue. I thought the trigger was too heavy. They fixed this and set the triggers to the exact weight I wanted.

I still have my Perazzis but shoot them less and less each year.
