Double rifle recoil reduction?

Does anyone know of a breaking system or any other means to tame the recoil of a double rifle? I have a client going on safari who wants a nice double in .470NE but he is a small framed man and is concerned about the recoil. He's not so much worried about the felt recoil while hunting but is concerned more about the recoil he is going to feel during his practice shooting while preparing for his safari.

That must be around 65-80 ft/lbs of recoil?
This would be permanent but, have him ask a gunsmith if porting it is an option.

Porting would be my first choice but a cheap extra would be a Limbsaver pad. Put one on my .308 and the difference is really noticeable. Certainly not a cure-all but a good addition to other things you can do

He may just have to suck it up. They are called "elephant guns" for a reason.

Off the bench with my 416 I use a 25 lb bag of lead shot. For his gun , get a paychmer decelerator put on - they really help .

How about a bump buster with one of the pass mentioned? (I would use kick eez) + porting

I knew a guy who had one of those double guns and had the stock drilled under the recoil pad drilled and filled with lead. I saw the pics.Never shot the gun but he said it helped.

Krieghoff or one of the other makers sold a braked one years ago. Ugly as sin. You can shoot reduced load for practice if you want.

I would not add weight if it is balanced properly now. Make sure it has a decent pad.

Some people put a mercury tube or kick-stop in. Again make sure it still balances well.

Thanks for the info. I knew about Krieghoff's use of the BreakO mercury system. The problem with porting or big "sissy" pads is it kind of takes away from the classic double rifle appearance. This may sound strange but it is one of his concerns.

Has anyone shot a big double with and without the mercury system? If so, how does it effect felt recoil in your opinion?

Its was noticeable for me-- I shot a 450 3/4 nitro with and without-- adds weight too
for bench practice i shot it with a 25 bag of shot between me and the gun without the mercury.
I never shot the gun prone, but I did shoot it standing. Brings blood on both ends, but its much more tolerable with the mercury-- others said they still felt it hurt. they can also put some cast onto the stock
