Yes, there are new models and ideas out there, but I still think the last word in recoil reduction belongs to the 53-year-old Remington 1100. It may have something to do with its gas system parts being heavy and slow-moving, I don’t know. Also, 1100s weigh a ton, which helps reduce recoil, too. The Browning Gold might be next. The Winchester Super X2 and X3 have the same action, and for what it’s worth, the world dove shooting record of 15,000 some in a day was set by a shooter with three 20 gauge X3s, firing over 16,000 rounds from sunup to past sunset, so you have to figure there is significant recoil reduction going on with the X3.
