I can come close. I tested a 391 side by side with a SBE II with a Comfortech stock.

The load was 1 1/2 oz. of lead with about 37 grains of Blue Dot.

Two guys testing on the skeet field behind station 4.

By the way we also had an Extrema II with Kick Off.

WE both judged the recoil as follows.

Softest feeling - Extrema II
Next softest - SBE II
Hardest kicking - 391 (my personal gun)

I went and bought a SBE II but have since sold it because the thing just didn't fit me right no matter how I adjusted the stock.
I had all 3 recoil pads they sell and all three combs.

I think the soft comb on the Comfortech really makes a difference in felt recoil. It a very nice gun it just didn't work for me. I'm going to buy an Extrema next and give that a try. I don't like the bulk of the Extrema but it fits me and I shoot my friends very well.

Hope this helps a little.
