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:
