    Possibility of fitting an 870 or Mossberg 500 stock onto an NEF or H&R break open???

    Anyone know if that can be done or how difficult it may be if even possible?

    Anything is possible if you throw enough money at it. What's wrong with the original stock?

    Nothing is wrong with the original stock, but I thought it might be nice to put one of those recoil reducing stocks on there or a speedfeed stock that has the ammo storage tubes in it.

    I understand the want for recoil reduction... It doesn't matter what end of those guns you put to your shoulder. The pain inflicted by the recoil is is close to what being shot in the shoulder would feel like. You might try one of those slip on recoil pads and an elastic sleeve on the stock for additional ammo storage. I am not saying what you want isn't worth doing but an entry level 870 or 500 will probably cost less.

    The H&R stocks attach differently, it would be some engineering to accomplish the fit.

    I would suggest a recoild pad such as Kick-EEZ: https://kickeezproducts.com/

    More expensive would be an insert into the stock: http://www.edwardsrecoilreducer.com/

    In looking at H&R's site, they also make a thumbhole type stock that would help you control the recoil: http://www.hr1871.com/Firearms/acces...ccessories.asp.

    You can do a lot to reduce recoil by pushing firmly forward on the foreend as you pull the stock back into the shoulder. This creates kind of an isometric tension and much of the recoil 'dies' between your hands. It is a pretty common technique.

    That sounds like fun but it is still a recipe for pissing away money. Isometric tension??????? Is that similar to Einstein's theory of relativity? I'm out of here. No reason to argue and get banned again.

    Yep, you got me, I don't know nuthin' just made that up.

    Isometric Tension/Push-Pull has been taught as a technique for a couple decades. It does help with recoil, but it also negates the possibility of the shooter jamming the action bar lock on 870's by pulling back on the forearm.

    Plus, in my/our experience with Mossberg 500's forward pressure ensures the breech face is square against the shell base and prevents off-center/light primer strike FTF's. (Some folks had BTF on Glocks, we had Mossberg 500's that misfired every now and again when shooters pulled back or held neutral on the forearm.)
