A Message From Ken

 First, let me say thank you to all my customers who have made the last 20 years a success! 

During the past 2 1/2 years I have had a stroke and 2 major surgeries. The surgeries have affected my stamina and the stroke my vision. I am no longer able to furnish my customers with the quality of work they and I have come to expect. Therefore I have no choice but to retire from my business. We have recently moved back to the San Antonio area and after working since I was 16, I am now looking forward to retiring.

We are no longer providing the Bump-Buster recoil system, however we are still supplying the Auto-Buster recoil system (for semi-autos) to Remington, Brownells and anyone that would like one for their gunsmith to install.

We wish y’all well and Happy Shooting! It’s been a great ride.

The Bump-Buster Gold is no longer available.......

If you have a Bump-Buster Gold and need assembly help, 
please watch the YouTube video. The 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.

KEN RUCKER'S Bump-Buster (TM)

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.
