I have not had the pleasure. In that first video I posted, the guy said that because the Arisaka 99 is light, it has quite a bit of felt recoil.
It didn't seem too bad to me when I shot those five rounds a few weeks ago. But then, my standard for recoil is my old Ithaca spring (as opposed to gas) recoil 12 gauge semi-auto, with a hard butt-plate stock, which came with no recoil pad. I've owned the shotgun since I was 15.
My friend shoots a variety of guns (both his, and his friends), often a few times per week. We went out one afternoon and he didn't know it, but I had slugs in the Ithaca (he assumed I was shooting low brass because he had them in his Mossberg). I shot it three or four times and handed it to him. He took one shot, groaned, handed it back, and wouldn't shoot it again.
Not that there aren't harder kicking guns, but so far my Ithaca sets the standard for anything I've shot.
Those are different beasts, compared to rifles --- in terms of kick. No?
Do you reload? Maybe cheaper than getting Arisaka ammo, from dealer. That's a great rifle with personal history. Was your Dad in the Marines?
