There are no shortcuts to good performance with a springer.
I'm just getting a new Warren Edwards stock set up with my 77K lazaglide action in it and one of Brian's polly hooks on the back so this stuff is very relevant to me at the moment.

As the action and stock are fixed together, the only way reduction of recoil can occur is via the mass of the stock soaking up the momentum. Anything more would require a sliding sledge action like the SR. Bedding might reduce vibration from the action which is a good thing but doesn't affect recoil.

For my rig I am most interested in getting consistent accuracy and no zero shifts.
