Default model 88 maverick recoil

i have a model 88 maverick 12 gauge. I put on a tactile kicklite stock on it.
http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/SHT-286

and this gun still kicks my @$$ when shooting slugs through it.

I've shot remmington sluggers out of it once and never bought them again LOL
now I have Winchester super X 2 3/4" 1oz rifled slugs. I have a long smooth barrel on it right now with a modified choke. I wanted to put on an 18.5" barrel on it as I want it for home defense. buckshot doesn't kick as hard but when I shoot slugs out of it it kicks harder than my mosin nagant it seem.

does anyone know of a lower recoil slug ammo? will the shorter barrel increase the recoil? i'm 5'9" and 165lbs so kinda small but I've been shooting since I was 10 and have never had a gun whoop on me this badly.

18" barrel weighs less than the long barrel, so yeah, it will kick more.

If you are really complaining about 12ga recoil this much though, I'd dare say there is something wrong with your technique...

Lighter weight, slower slugs will kick less. Remington has their "Managed recoil" Sluggers, which are 1oz slugs with a lower velocity, but may only reach out to about 75 yards effectively.

Why you would want to use slugs at all for a home defense shotgun though is beyond me, the point of a shotgun is a spread of shot.

But I hear you. I recently had to diagnose a problem with a guys 870 at work, he said it was wildly inaccurate. I boresighted it, and he asked me to shoot it. Pulled a group fine, but my shoulder hated me after putting some 300gr Hornady SST's down range.

the slugs are just for going to the range because well... i like shooting stuff i have the regal low recoil buckshot and military grade 00 buck that sits in it while it's laying around the house... i grew up using my dads mossberg 500 but i'm open to the idea that i should be shouldering it wrong now that it has the new butt stock on it.

My brother has the same gun. I believe it is chambered for 3-1/2" shells. He gave me it with one in it... I shot it once, gave it back to him and told him never to give it to me again... That fucker kicks like a deranged mule... I will stick to my Winchester model 12...

Y'all should fire my Benelli Nova with 3-1/2" turkey loads. LOL
I got a sweet deal on it because the guy who owned it couldn't handle the kick.

Ever get a bruised shoulder from a 12 gauge? I did last time i took my beretta over under out. Accidentally pulled both barrels at the same time. Hurt like a motherfucker.
