At SHOT Show I spent time at the Phoenix Technology booth trying out their new KickLite stock which is designed to reduce felt recoil by directing it away from the shooter by utilizing a unique spring system, but the company has a number of other new items available this year as well. In fact, they’re broadening their product line by making items available in a variety of new colors. They’re expanding both their solids and prints in colors that cover the fun customization spectrum as well as the useful side of things.
OD Green, Black and Dark Earth have been available for some time, but now this product will be available in pink, orange, camo, a tan-and-chocolate-brown print, and a bright green-and-black print. The forends are made to fit the Mossberg 500 and Remington 870 and have the following features:
“* Rugged construction with deep grooves for sure grip and enhanced weapon control in all situations
* Injection molded of premium glass-filled nylon
* Wrench included for installation (wrench will not work for disassembly of existing forends with recessed slide nut tube)
* Will not work with Mossbergs with original forends in
* Made in the USA” (from Phoenix Technology)
MSRP $22.00. Although the new colors are not yet available online they should be listed by the end of the first quarter. You can also contact the company directly at 910-259-6804 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
KickLite Recoil Reduction 6-Position Shotgun Stock
The KickLite 6-Position Shotgun Stock will be coming out in new colors as well. It currently comes in OD Green, Dark Earth, and Black; new colors will include pink, orange, gray, and tan.
“The Phoenix Technology KickLite 6 position stock…is designed and engineered to absorb 40 – 50% of the felt recoil of shotgun loads. The patented KickLite system is a fully integrated and maintenance free system comprised of an aluminum shaft and heavy duty spring fitted into the commercial spec tube. Allowing up to 3/4″” rearward travel of the pistol grip upon discharge, the felt impact is greatly reduced allowing for quicker follow up shots, reduced fatigue and improved accuracy. A built in hood eliminates any possible ‘pinch points’ during compression.” (from Phoenix Technology)
MSRP $109.00. Although the new colors are not yet available online they should be listed by the end of the first quarter. You can also contact the company directly at 910-259-6804 or via email at email@example.com.
