the angle of the pillar was changed for the G2
that could result in a different 'feel' of recoil
I cannot attest to it, having never fired a G2
but I take a lot of recoil with my contender and 14" SSK 444 Marlin barrel
and it feels stout yet manageable
...to a masochist
Yep, the category for these particular posts was and is ModernShooters, showing a photo of fixed brass ammo. Modern Shooters
Some of us are admittedly partial to sidelock Muzzies (myself included), but we should still welcome our brother shooters in their designated posting areas. After all, we each cut our teeth learning to shoot with cartridge arms; some of us have even been know to keep one or two of them around for personal protection, hunting, or Heaven forbid, target shooting! I still keep a J.C. Higgins rimfire gun purchased by my Dad in 1950; it is fully functional and really fun to shoot. I don't use it much anymore, but it does have sentiment and utility for me.
