Two Questions:

1) I have am looking for a Recoil pad for Remington 870 Express Tactical.

I was shooting slugs at the range with my son. He is fine. But to me, it kicks like a mule.
My shoulder gets sore. We took lessons to be sure we were using the 870 correctly.

One person recommended the SuperCell Recoil Pad. I wanted to see if you guys agree and it would be a perfect fit replacement?

If not, what you recommend for the 870 Express Tactical?

2) Any good gunsmiths in Suffolk?

Thanks!

The 870 with a short barrel will always kick like a mule, all pump guns kick, especially light weight ones. Not going to see a noticeable difference in kick with a new recoil pad really.

How's the 870 recoil with shot instead of slugs?




If you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything.

I've used Limb-saver recoil pads with a noticeable improvement.

Just my .02 but a day at the range is much more punishing to the shoulder than a day of hunting and your going to get sore regardless of the pad you decide to go with.

Try using the lightest low recoil load you can find (good luck with the shortage) and at all costs stay away from any 3inch load.A new pad will help somewhat, another trick you can try if your hurting at the range is to bring a thick bath towel with u and fold it over your shoulder and use it like a pad..Helpful and cheap.Having said all that the newer lighter synthetic guns will always kick more due to the law of physics..heavier guns soak up the recoil more.

Also at a range you are wearing less clothing than you will be sitting in the woods. That will add extra padding. Plus you are only going to shoot a few slugs in the woods compared to the range.
