ATI Adjustable Shotgun Hunting Stock

ati_adj_hunting_stockjpg-tfb-tm

In my opinion this new stock and forend from ATI (Advanced Technology International) is a stroke of genius! There is a lot to be said for having a collapsable stock as it makes transport easier and allows younger member of the family to comfortably shoot a gun that otherwise would have too long a length of pull.

The market has been saturated with M4 style adjustable stocks, which is fine if you want a tactical looks, but a pistol grip is not as ergonomic for shotgun shooting as a traditional stock. Even for tactical / self defense use I have heard many experts argue against putting a pistol grip on a shotgun.

The stock is made from DuPont Reinforced Polymer. It is 4-position and extends from 12-3/8″ to 14-3/8″. It fits 12 and 20 gauge Remington 870, Maverick 88, Winchester 1200/1300 and Mossberg 500/590 shotguns.

I was offered one of these stocks for review, but I am not able to review products at present, although I think I will be buying one of these stocks in the future.

    “pistol grip is not as ergonomic for shotgun shooting as a traditional stock.” why? doesnt that depend on what you are used and trained to use? personally i think those stocks feels horrible.

    This is a neat idea by ATI, nifty, but not sexy. I will definitely be considering such an accessory.

    Firing lots and lots of buckshot or slugs with a pistol grip stock is no fun, so that’s why I don’t like them. The recoil tends to go into your wrist instead of your shoulder. Pistol grips also tend to force your elbow down, so that the recoil in your shoulder is that much worse, versus a conventional stock which makes your arm “chicken wing” outward and tends to give your shoulder a flat surface for the buttstock because your shoulder rolls forward. Elbow down offers stability which is important for rifle shooting, elbow up offers speed which is important for shotgunning.

    Of course, all of this changes if you shoot from an “Isosceles” type stand. Your mileage my vary, as they say.

    I have big hands. On the Mossberg, it’s too long. On the 870, with the 1″ adapter required, it’s unshootable. Great concept. They just need to shorten the grip section about 1.5″

    Smaller handed shooters can’t even grip it.
