Thread: Anyone fitted their own rifle recoil pad?

  1. #1

    Anyone fitted their own rifle recoil pad?

    Just wondering if anyone has fitted their own rifle recoil pad to a stock?

    My ZKK601 .308 really needs a decent one fitting and I was going to have a go myself as I'm quite handy in the workshop. Is it a fairly simple operation? Is there a certain type that is better than others without breaking the bank?

    Any obvious tips or techniques? I've watched a couple of youtube vids but like always the pro's make it look dead easy, even if it isn't!!

    Cheers

    whats wrong with the one on it? I have a 308 601 and the factory one seems fine.

    There are aftermarket ones but they are best shaped with a belt sander, you can also get vulcanised rubber spacers to pack out if needed. Not a difficult job with care.

    Do them all the time to rifles and shotguns nice easy little job best done with a belt sander but a disc sander will do.

    first, if the currentl one is very thin, and it's the right length of pull for you, you cannot install a bigger one unless you cut a length off the stock, but if you do, then at least it will be a good time to check the pitch and get it 'just right' as well.

    I recommend Pachmayer decelerator or SW Silvers. both excellent pads. EZ kick are ok, but ugly. avoid cheap pads.

    To reduce recoil Kickeeze or a Dave ISIS pad are the best both come in different lelengths.

    To change or maintain length of pull decelerator or slivers are the best.

    Cheap pads are ok for a short time then start to break down so are best avoided.

    stratts, step one IMHO, do you have a decent disc or belt sander or can borrow one? if not, might as well just go right to a pro unless you want to buy and keep the sander for other diy purposes. you can't really install a pad without it tbh.

    are you sure you are not currently on a buttplate rather than recoil pad?
