Stoeger M3500 recoil reducer installation?

Postby TxSwampStomper » Sun Oct 27, 2013 11:31 pm

Whats the easiest way to install the recoil reducer in? Hands are a little big to fit in there and I could imagine I'd get a little frustrated trying to do it with a flat head screwdriver lol

Put the barrel on the floor use a flashlight and drop it in. There should be guides to help it line up and the n tighten up with a flat head. Don't forget the spotlight if it comes loose it can cause a fte or ftl

had to use a pair of vice grips to get it down in there. Once it was in the right spot tighten it down with a flathead.

I lined up the bolt with a pencil and slid the washer down the pencil. Hope this helps.

What ever you do make sure it can't come loose ie locktight, if it's loose it will cause an fte or ftl no. Matter what shells your using.

I also used a pencil to line up and install the washer. I was able to install the recoil reducer with a large flat tip and just sliding the reducer down the inside of the stock. Got it the first time. Make sure you apply locktite, if you go on a couple of days hunts using 3.5, the reducer can back off a little without locktite.
