I found that after getting Punishers LPR adapters and decent LPRs, my Mephistos have all smoothed out... I've also thrown Fatty regs or Detonators on them and that helped quite a bit.
I've found that with my Twister fully upgraded (Softy bolt, PPS Fatty, PPS Microrock, Punishers LPR adapter, and RR Trigger) it's more like shooting a heavy Timmy than a Tribal.
Also, milling the crap out of a Mephisto (they're bulky, and they lend themselves to it) will make balance you out a little... I personally think taking as many ounces of weight off as possible and throwing a 15* ASA on there is the way to go. It'll still kick but the balance is nicer.
