Has anyone here used the hollow stocks that H&R uses
on the Survivor models that open up and provide lots
of storage etc. ? They also have a forearm piece
I think that has cavities for storage as well.
I'm just wondering what the overall feel is like for sturdiness
and ease of opening etc. It might be a good way to
carry lots of ammo.
Thanks

I have the survivor in .308 and I love it! The only complaint that I have is that it kicks like a mule. The storage compartment in the buttstock is great for ammo and any "survival" items. I have heard that large recoil pads fit perfectly but you just get used to it and it is not a necessity for singe shot firearms. The forearm does not have much storage space at all maybe enough for a few rifle cartridges but not enough space for shotgun shells. I highly recommend it though!

I have a set I switch between my tracker II 12 ga and my 16 ga actually going to use the 16 ga for turkey hunting this year. This 16 ga full choke throw one of the best pattern I have seen Yea the lite weight adds to the felt recoil but the pistol grip gives you allot more control of the gun. I've never try to store anything in the stock or forearm but there is room to put some needed items in there.

Actually been thinking about pushing a plastic trash bag
into the stock with my hand and then filling the bag with
a slurry of epoxy and round lead shot. When the epoxy
hardens I will have a perfectly formed and removable 5 pound
plug for extra weight in the stock.
Could add another pound or two in the forearm also.
Anyone see anything wrong with this to reduce recoil
without making anything permanent ?

weighting the forearm is not a good idea they tend to shear off the bolster for the forearm screw. weight in the butt stock is fine. I don't care for a thumbhole/pistol grip on a gun with a hammer or top safety. I like the survivor forearm the gun set out to hunt with tomorrow is a 28 ga with a choate buttstock and survivor forearm
