Anyone heard of or familiar with Phoenix Technology's Kicklite Recoil Reduction Stock? How is it compared to the Knoxx Specops?

From the looks of the picture on their website, it still looks like it's a pain to get to the release..... I'm probably still better off with the Hogue 12"..... spy

You mean those? Interesting. Ive never heard of them!

Any PG stock that has a "nose" that goes from the back of the receiver to the back of the trigger guard will block easy access to the slide release.

It looks interesting but other than calling it patent pending technology, they say nothing that I can find about how it actually works.

Sorry to bump an old thread, but its a relevant reply..

I just ordered one of these. I figure I'd give a shot.. But the reason for the early post about it, I ordered the stock and within 15 minutes of my payment, they had a ups tracking number in my inbox. So, so far, customer service is looking great.

We'll see how the stock is when it gets here.. if it is a quality stock, I am hoping it is the mid level stock option I have been looking for. And, if you order from them on eBay (seller: getstockedusa) instead of direct, the buy it now price is the same as the price on their site, but they have a bid option.. I used the bid option and won it, with shipping, for $94.99 which is a $20 save from the site price/ship.

I will post pics and opinions when it arrives.

Interesting. For info carolina shooters supply shows the kicklite tactical stock set for 69.99.

http://store.carolinashooterssupply.com ... CAL/Detail

Edit: Both here, but I think these below are not kicklite. I think just non "recoil softening" ones maybe?

Tactical 66.95

Sporter 56.95

Hey guys.. thanks for the pricing comparison and I got the tactical.. showed up today :)

First look:

Image

Image

Internal Recoil Suppression:

Image

Grabbing the front of the SG with both hands with the butt stock on my chest, I can pull the suppression spring back about 3/4 of the way at best, using my full force.

Fore end installed:

Image

Butt stock installed:

Image

Image

Before:

Image

After:

Image

Everything fits tight, no fore end issues.

Here's what happens if you do not remove the plate inside the receiver (doh!)

Image

Done right:

Image

The over all butt stock is tight, the included recoil pad is super soft to about 50% compression, and the included shell holder is soft plastic and really only gets ridged once fully stocked. That will soon be replaced with an aluminum one.

Guess I should have looked around some more, but I also like getting it direct.. for some reason. I did check these prices with shipping, brought the total to about $77 (tactical).. so these are definitely better deals ;)

I'm interested in what you think of it once you put a few downrange with it. Not a bad price for a recoil reducing setup.

Everything fits tight, no fore end issues. I do have one minor detail to address, but I believe I can tool it a bit to fit better.. and that is where the butt stock meets the receiver:

Image

I believe I can shave a little material off the butt stock insert and make this flush.

The over all butt stock is tight, the included recoil pad is super soft to about 50% compression, and the included shell holder is soft plastic and really only gets ridged once fully stocked. That will soon be replaced with an aluminum one.



did you remove the steel plate from between the reciever and stock?

Hello Florida_Outdoor,

Did you get a chance to try out the Phoenix stock set-up? I'm interested in your impressions.

I also am looking at add a recoil reducing stock to my Mossberg 500....was wondering how the Kicklite is working out? Is the recoil reduction a inside coil spring or is it just the back pad...........not much info on their web site..........the price is right........also looking at the Knoxx, Mako & Tacstar....thanks

Any update on this thing? Anyone compared it to the Knoxx? I know for one thing it looks like I will be able to aim with this a lot better... My Knoxx doesn't allow a good line of sight down the barrel with a comfortable "rifle" style cheek to stock.

Hey Florida_Outdoor, the stock looks nice! Have ya shot it yet?

Hey gregc, how's getting to the action release on your 500? I know it's a pain on the knoxx, that's why I was looking into the kicklite. You got a pic of the other side of the 500?

thanks guys, spy
