How bad is it? As much as a 12 gauge or as low as a .22? :confused:

It's not bad at all. Not knowing your breadth of experience, I don't know what to compare it to. It was more than an AR15/.223, but noticeably less than my .30-30's. Enough recoil that it's work to stay on target between shots, but not enough that it hurts.

The SAR-1 is chambered for 7.62x39, which has mild recoil. Less than .308/7.62 NATO, but more than .223/5.56 NATO. Much, much less than from a 12 gauge shotgun.

"Much, much less than from a 12 gauge shotgun."

Good. Last time I fired a 12 gauge, my should hurt for 2 days.

I can fire my AK all day long and never get sore.

but I can shoot my 12 gauge all day long, too, and not be sore either.. but recoil is significantly less than a 12 gauge.

Its medium recoil as everyone is saying. The Russians designed the 7.62 x 39 to be a medium powered round, so each shot doesn't kick like a mull and thus you can aim easier during any kind of semi-auto or automatic fire.



Here is a question: What gun have you fellas fired that has an absolute brutal kick? (in your opinion)

My M48 has some brutal kick shooting 198 grain Yugo 8mm.

Hardest-kicking gun I own is a bolt-action Mosin-Nagant M44 in 7.62x54R. It's ballistically similar to .30-06, but has a relatively short barrel and a solid steel buttplate. Lots of muzzle blast, too...

My No.5 Mk.I Jungle Carbine kicks like a mule. So does my VZ-24 when loaded with S&B 196 grain 8mm.

Fit of the stock has as much to do with felt recoil as anything. Worst for me was a Marlin 336 in 30/30. Not notorious for it's recoil, but it sure was tough for me to get a good cheek weld, and when I didn't, I knew it as soon as I touched it off. Had a Century made stock on one of my FN's for a short time that did the same thing. Not brutual amounts of recoil in the traditional sense, but it hurts a lot more when you take it in the cheek instead of the shoulder.

My Swiss K31 has a pretty hefty kick. Lord help me if that rifle wasn't so heavy.

If 80 lb teenagers in (insert 3rd world cr@phole here) can handle the recoil,
so can you.....
