The Edwards RECOIL REDUCER® design is based on a piston, suspended between 2 springs of unequal ratio, being placed in motion by the reward movement of recoil.  The recoil compresses the piston against the strong spring which, in turn, forces it against the weaker spring.  This action happens numerous times every time you fire a shot, thereby reducing the felt recoil.

Edwards offers four different types of recoil reduction devices, a combination that can be uniquely matched to satisfy your recoil reduction needs in any rifle or shotgun. But not just for shotguns, our recoil reducers are routinely installed in rifles up to .460 Lott and many of our units have been used by hunters seeking dangerous game.

Key benefits include:


  • ​Adjustability for either right- or left-handed shooters.

  • Patented locking system prevents units from turning, when installed properly, providing the user years of trouble-free service.

  • ​Not just for shotguns, can be installed in rifles up to  458 Win Mag caliber.

  • One installation adds a net increase of 6 oz. and two adds about 11 oz.  For competition shooting (ie: trap, skeet, sporting clays) and stationary hunting of ducks, geese, doves, this increase is no big deal. With upland shooting that requires much walking, the Edwards RECOIL REDUCER® user usually compensates quickly, soon forget ting it's added weight.

  • Edwards RECOIL REDUCER® is a metal cylinder less than one inch in diameter and either 3, 3 1/2 or 4 inches in length.  It's what's inside that counts: a piston held between 2 compressed springs of different ratios. The Edwards RECOIL REDUCER® is installed in the shotgun or rifle stock and many top shooters use a double installation (two reducers in the stock).​​​
