Default Rem 870 with Knoxx

Anyone have any experience with Rem 870 12g with Knoxx system? I want the wife to be able to use this plateform thinking that the Knoxx will reduce the recoil considerable for a petite lady. If not the 12g then I'll probably go with same shotgun but in 20g with reduced recoil ammo. Any advice would be appreciated.

My wife is 4'10" 90lbs and shoots a 20ga O/U with field loads with no problem...

I shortened the stock and put a good recoil pad on it.

If the gun fits her right it makes all the difference in the world so far as felt recoil goes.

I have a 870 with the Knoxx recoil reducing stock. I purchased a 18" barrel to replace the 24"(or 26", I don't remember). It reduces recoil quite a bit esp on 2 3/4 shells. Still kicks like a mule on 3" 00buck. Not sure if the shorter barrel adds to the kick.
