I put a mercury recoil reducer in my shotguns magazine. I was wondering does anyone know, should this change your point of impact?

    I would suppose that adding a weight to the front of the shotgun might have some effect. I thought they were designed to be put in the hole at the rear of the stock.

    btw, reducers are designed to go 3 places, mag tube, stock, and external hanger.

    Of the users I know, haven't heard of this effect. They make the in stock type, the in the magazine type(you have), one of the latest is the one that screws on in place of the magazine cap, and a type that clamps to the barrel or magazine. There could even be more; someone may have thought up a new type by now. I have a couple of the magazine cap type on some automatics and an in stock type in my over under, but haven't heard any one complain about a point of impact change. The extra weight might be causing you to tail off when tracking the target and make it seem like that.
