When we first began shooting the AL390 as it came out of the box, we were bothered by its stiff recoil. Then we changed the drop and cast of the buttstock using enclosed parts and solved the recoil problem. Once the gun is set up properly, it works nicely indeed for a range of body types.
A silver front bead is easy to see.
The AL390's gas system adjusts to the load. Heavier charges vent more gas, reducing recoil somewhat.
The AL390 had a black-anodized aluminum-alloy receiver. The trigger broke between 4 to 4.25 pounds.
