The next generation of recoil reduction systems by Speedbump Stockworks. This is the compression buttplate against which all others will be judged. It incorporates two major design changes over the original Bump-Buster design.
The first change is the new proprietary design hydraulic cylinder made for us by KyntecTM. It is smoother, more efficient, and has a greater range of adjustability than the original. It has been designed specifically for use in reducing recoil rather than being an off the shelf industrial cylinder.
The second change is in the method of attachment of the rear of the system to the hydraulic cylinder. This will eliminate incorrect assembly which leads to the improper function of the system.
It will be available in both shotgun and rifle models starting March 21st. Retrofit kits will also be available if you wish to upgrade your original Bump-Buster system to the new "Gold."
The price for the new "Bump-Buster Gold" is $525 installed with a new Kickeez pad of your choice. The retrofit kit is $200 and must be installed by Speedbump Stockworks. All parts are made only in America!!
We are very excited about this new technological advancement in shooting comfort!

"It's fabulous, just fabulous...it's such a joy to shoot guns that fit!!!"

"Thanks, Ken. Excellent work. All the accolades on the internet are well deserved!"

"Just wanted to let you know that I went to the Blue Bonnet Tournament in Waxahachie last weekend and thanks to your fine craftsmanship, shot better than I ever have before. I took 1st in the 12 and 28 gauge, 3rd in the 20 and 4th in the .410 in my class. The fit of my shotgun was great. No readjusting after I mounted the gun and it lined me up perfectly for the shots. I shot my first straights ever (one in the 12 and another in the 28) in a tournament. Thank you for the work, the great equipment and for your expert fit on my gun. Couldn't have done it without you!!"

I wanted to send you pictures of our recent hunt in
Zimbabwe and South Africa. You had installed a Bump-Buster on my .416
Rem and it worked flawlessly! As you can see, we had a very successful
hunt and look forward to going again. It
is nice to have a powerful rifle and not worry about recoil.
Speedbump Stockworks and Blaser USA have teamed up to produce this fantastic new Ladies F3 shotgun. It comes with our powder coated Bump-Buster with a pad adjuster and adjustable length of pull. The length of pull is adjustable from 13 1/2" to 14 5/8". Also included in this package is our 4 way adjustable comb.
Ken Rucker's Auto-Buster(TM) is available now for installation in most* auto-loaders. For junior shooters, ladies, and anyone who simply wants to reduce the recoil for shooting semi-autos in competition and in practice, this is the ONLY recoil reduction system you'll ever need. Comes complete with pad adjuster, installed with a Kickeez recoil pad and medium springs.

* Sorry, we cannot put an Auto-Buster on any Benelli with a synthetic stock or Browning Maxus.
Here it is, for all who have asked, a photo of a naked Bump-Buster!
Here's how it works:
My Bump-Buster is a spring over hydraulic system. The high-quality hydraulic cylinder slips into a friction spring for fully adjustable recoil reduction. This system reduces felt recoil by 40%, providing smooth shooting for everyone: novice, experienced, and competition shooters. It's available with a standard hydraulic cylinder for most shotguns, and a heavy-duty hydraulic cylinder for hunting shotguns and rifles. Length of pull is adjustable on both models. Both the standard and the heavy-duty Bump-Buster models are available with or without an adjustable buttplate.
"As for movement on your cheek, it isn't noticeable like a PFS stock. You don't feel it move. As for adjustments, I've never had to do anything. Ken has a winner when he came up with the Bump-Buster." HF
"I just got to try my new Bump-Buster yesterday. I shot 200 Trap targets with loads from 7/8oz. all the way up to the Nitro Handicaps. It was great! No flinching and the recoil was about like shooting my 28 ga. tube set. I am usually pretty tired and beat up after 200 rounds, but I felt great with the Bump-Buster. I could have shot all day, but I ran out of shells! Thanks for significantly improving the quality of my shooting experience."

"Consider carefully before buying one of these stocks. Due to the lack of felt recoil, you will consume shells at an unprecedented rate. You may be seen looking in the trunk and under the car seat for more shells because of a lack of recoil fatigue. You'll want to spend more time at the range because the accumulated effects of recoil no longer camp out in your shell bag.
They may look all nice and cute, but they ain't no cheap date. Kinda like buying a horse--once you pay for it, you really start spending money! In all seriousness, I've got RA and recoil has been a very real issue in my shooting for the last few years. At one time, 75 rounds was about all I could handle. Gave up on the over under, went back to the 391 and I could do 150-175. Switched from a 391 to the Remington 1100 Competition and could handle 200-250 an afternoon, with maybe a few side effects the next day.
Put the Pro-Combo on the 1100 and I shoot until I run out of shells. Don't have sense enough to leave some at home. 350 in a couple hours and, while I may be getting a little tired from the gun weight, recoil still isn't an issue with 7/8's or 1 oz. loads. That may not sound like much for some of you real men out there, but given where I was, I think I've died and gone to heaven.
P.S. Anybody know where I can buy reloading supplies cheap?"

"Several months ago I brought over my 458 LOTT in the Ruger Safari Mag for you to try to tame down a bit. I had some problems with a shoulder blade/arm being held up by cables and titanium bar and the kick was something I could no longer put up with. I didn't get right back in touch with you because I wanted to be sure I had given the rifle a pretty good test before I committed myself to saying it was great or that it might not be what it was hyped up to be.
I put several full bore rounds of 500 gr 458's through this every day now getting ready for an Africa trip in September of this year. The rounds chrono at just under 2200 fps which is cooking pretty good for a big bore like this one. The last 8 shots I have fired off-hand, with no sticks or rest of any kind have all been in an 8" pie plate at a marked 75 yards. The muzzle of the rifle only rises a fraction of what it did before installing the Bump-Buster and I can fire two shots in much less time than before.
What made the difference in my accuracy is that before the installation I had to grip the front forend with a deathgrip because I knew the barrel was going to jump straight up in the air for quite a ways. Now I can just about rest the forearm in the palm of my hand similar to the way our Olympic shooters fire a round and the barrel doesn't jump out of my hand. For someone with the extensive damage I have to my back/shoulder blade/neck area, this was the perfect answer to the problem of a rifle that kicked like a mule. Just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the system. I have film of how little the barrel rises now and watching it amazes me. Thanks!"

Ken Rucker's Bump-Buster(TM) Hydraulic Recoil Reduction System and Ken Rucker's Auto-Buster(TM) Dual-Spring Recoil Reduction System are both 100% American manufactured and installed. No foreign parts or labor are used.
"I'm amazed at the craftsmanship of the work you did on my Golden Clays! Thank you so much!"
The votes are in - EVERYBODY LOVES the red, white and blue powder-coated Bump-Buster(TM) hydraulic recoil system! It's true, folks...we're the first in the county, heck, in the WORLD to powder-coat these metallic surfaces in your choice of colors. Turns out, most of us like these colors pretty well. Call me for a quote on installing a powder-coated Bump-Buster on your particular gunstock. You might want to hurry.....
Oh, you'll need to know that there are two different Bump-Buster models. The one shown has a fully-adjustable recoil pad. The other model does not have this feature. Both models are adjustable for recoil tension and length of pull. The model shown here in 3-color powder coating is $575 installed. The same model in polished aluminum (no powder coating) is $475 installed. The basic model mentioned above is $410 for polished aluminum and $485 with optional powder coating.
Here's an example of one of my adjustable combs done for Ljutic Industries.

"A few years ago I had Ken work on my stock. After looking at the work, I immediately said I'd never let anyone touch my stocks as long as Ken is available. He has put a few adjustable combs and recoil reducers on my stocks since then that look better than factory new. If you go elsewhere you're taking a big chance!" GB
"It sounds as if we're all members of the same choir, but I had Ken install his Bump-Buster system on my Beretta about six weeks ago. It works terrific and the wood-to-metal fit is second to none. There may be others who are good, but I heartily recommend Ken." CH
**Please note: We will not cut a comb on any Beretta Semi-Automatic, or Beretta 686, 687. There is not enough wood in the top of the stock. We also no longer offer replacement comb hardware for existing Beretta combs.**
