Recoil Pads

Post by brow_tines on Fri Oct 14, 2011 5:55 pm

I'm in the market for a recoil pad for my Remington Model 700, I talked to Limbsaver and they said I would have would have to grind down the back of my stock so it would be straight to accept a screw on pad. The reviews I've seen on Remington SuperCell is they don't fit very well. So does anyone here have any suggestions?

Isn't the back of your stock already flat?

I do like the Sims vibration lab recoil pad that I have on my Browning A-bolt.
Cool So comfy and soft.

I have used several different recoil pads.

I like the Pachmayr recoil pads, and have some slip on pads.

I used my compound miter saw to square the butt of my Ruger 77 LA (old school tang safety) 7mm Mag to fit a Pachmayr pad on the factory stock. The previous owner showed this rifle no love and it still needs a new barrel and refinishing. I think the previous owner had never heard of cleaning a rifle or let it rattle around in the bed of his truck.

I was refinishing the stock anyway along with a glass & pillar bedding job so when I hit the (blankity, blankity) stock with the belt sander was not so big a deal.

I managed to smooth it enough that most people (other than me) can't see the mistakes. Had I gone with a high gloss poly finish, would have been worse. I chose a more sedate tung oil finish with a satin poly coating for water resistance.

I have a Marlin 1895 45-70 GS (old style before porting) that wallops the crap out of me. Since I cannot afford at the moment to send it to either get ported or a muzzle break installed, I am looking for a slip on pad for it.

Do you know if those slip on pads are still on the market and affordable?The ones you see in stores now are four more times expensive.

Under $20.00 +shipping at brownells.

Just put "slip on recoil pads" in your search engine and go to town.

I have not found one that fits my Marlin 1895 GS well. Most of them slip too much or make the length of pull too long to shoot the rifle well.

I just have to get mine to my gunsmith to fit a better pad on it.
