Recoil pad for shotgun

6 posts in this topic

I'm looking to add some length to my gun's stock as well as diminish some recoil. Nothing fancy, just a plain jane 870 black synthetic stock. I hear limbsaver makes a good pad, but the ones for sale online don't say what guns they will fit. I'm guessing a medium, but don't want to be wrong.

Anybody know? Anyone have any brand suggestions besides Limbsaver?

I've had the gun about 10 years, trust me, it's not me wussing out. It's that I want to get better at the trap range and have a better fit. I can keep shooting and accounting for the poor fit or I can try and fix the fit and build better shooting habits. I'm 6'4" and wear a size 16. My cubit length (wrist to elbow) is larger than standard stock sizes accomodate to, so adding some length is the right call in this situation without a doubt.

Limbsavers are nice, that is the one on my new gun. Try shooting mine on tuesday if you make it to the range.

da_chise, I know what you are talking about (I'm 6'7") and i went with a boyds thumbhole stock set from cabelas on my 870. It lengthend it a little, but being a thumbhole stock it allows for a different feel than a normal stock. Remington also has a lightweight (plastic) thumbhole replacement stock that is about half of the boyds cost. The Boyds stock is heavy, you will want to put a sling on it if you are walking to your deer blind or turkey area. I have pictures here:

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
