Default Recoil Pad

Do they make a ventilated rubber recoil pad for the Topper 88 and the NEF singles? Have the Sims on both now but really don't care for them that much. Thanks

I don't think anyone makes a "made to fit" pad, but you can probably find one that will be a fairly close match to the stock.

You could always use a grind to fit screw on pad.

As spruce said the "grind to fit" is the only way you're going to fit a pad on almost any shotgun. I had to grind to fit my normal butt plate but I ground the stock not the plate.

I have a slip on pad that works pretty well.

You can use Limbsaver templates to find a pad that is close using the measurement on the templates, you can also use the templates as their instructions state, but you have to adjust print parameters to get it to print so the measurements are accurate which isn't easy.

I use a slip on "Sissy Pad" but always wanted a normal one but I would need to cut the stock some to get the same LOP. I figured I would need a band saw to get that cut done right. I worry more about the stock cut then fitting the pad. I have a 1/3 sheet power sander that can make it fit.

I've used a few of these pachmayer pads on my shotguns. I think they are just right. Not to soft but good to shoot 3 to 4 boxes of 25 without turning your shoulder black and blue. They look good too. Not too hard to fit with a bench top sander. If you need some help just send a pm.

Table saw has always worked for me, take a bit of set up, but it works. Same for a miter box, I'd use my chop saw now tho. Larry just uses a handsaw in his video.

Tim beat me to it. I've used my chop saw to do about 5 or 6 stocks, both for my wife and daughter as well as a couple of Limbsavers for myself. A grinding pad works well along with my 12" disc sander

Thanks Tim, and hwb, but I do have a spare rifle stock with a cushy looking pad already on it. All I really have to do is my normal straight stock job on it and put that on my Pardner. Will probably have to take and refinish the forearm at the same time to get them to match but that's no problem. Thanks guys.
