I recently read somewhere that a Harrts recoil reducer can reduce muzzle flip in a small pistol from 30 - 50%. Can anyone attest to this and tell me your own experiencees. They claim its the quickest way to get back on target for a second or third shot. Does anyone have any ideas or comments. I would like to put one in a P9.

I have a Harrt's rod in my P9. I can not say that it "reduces recoil" by so much percentage, but in my hands it takes the "sharpness" out of firing 124gr+p loads and makes 115gr standard ball rounds feel like a target load.

I have a Harrt's rod in my K40 covert. You can tell the difference in recoil, but I would say that it is slight. more like 10-15% than 30%. Not bad, but I don't think it was worth the price.

50% is over stating it to be sure.
I have Harrts in most of my Glocks and our Kahr P9s and they do work but they do not really seem to reduce the felt recoil to your hand.
The difference is more akin to the earlier comment in reference to a reduction in felt sharpness with a light reduction in muzzle rise on single fire but during rpid fire my shot to shot string times did decrease by several tenths with the Harrts in place.

The larger guns like the 1911 and large frame Glocks with longer guide rods really benefit from the Harrts.
