    Hello All
    Im new to the forum and had a couple questions. Ive had my 930 SPX for about 7yrs and havent fired it much (300rnds max) but the times ive fired it Ive been having intermittent feeding issues and FTE issues. To add to the difficulty the issue were intermittent and didnt seem to have any common theme. It didnt seem to matter what type rounds i was using. Being that i use this weapon as my primary home defense go to gun Ive been trying every and anything to get this gun to be more reliable. So I read quite a few posts and decided to "upgrade" some parts to see if that would help alleviate some of my issues. 1 or 2 of these items were more for aesthetics but overall i wanted the gun to improve reliabilty.

    1) I changed out the stock buttstock and installed a new Mesa Tactical Urbino pistol grip stock
    2) Installed OR3GUN marine spacer tube
    3) Installed new GGG Low Drag aluminum follower
    4) Nordic Barrel Clamp

    After I installed I have not had an issue yet but ive only fired about 20rnds thru it since Ive got the parts installed and part of the reason is because this thing is no longer a joy to fire. The shortened Urbino stock for some reason now kicks like a Mule outta hell (and Ive got the limb Saver stock). It batters me every single time i fire the weapon. i used to be able to rapid fire and empty the magazine but with the increased felt recoil and pistol grip now its seems impossible for me to have 1 quick follow up shot. i have to reset each time after firing now. Im seriously considering going back to the stock stock.

    So my question is has anyone else experienced this when they installed the urbino pistol grip stock?? Because now i cant really tell if my problem is fixed or not because i cant rapid fire the darn thing. Does anyone know why the gun would have so much more of a recoil now?? Im a big guy and i can control a weapon but i cant seem to get more than 1 rnd off at a time with this thing now. Seems like a totally differnt gun now. Any suggestions on how I can better able to rapid fire with this setup??

    Sorry for the belated response.

    Anytime you change parts on a gun, you risk that part being more a detriment than an asset. So, if you think it's changed how the gun handles negatively, by all means, yes, I would put the original stock back on and go from there.

    The follower isn't going to make the recoil worse.
    The barrel clamp isn't going to make the recoil worse.
    The stock, in reality, isn't going to increase the recoil either, though it may change the angles and generally could be unpleasant-depending on the individual, but it's not going to actually increase recoil.

    So, that leaves the marine tube or whatever you are calling it as the likely culprit.
