Most Asked:  Adding a KICK-EEZ Recoil Pad to a Stock-Adjusting System

Conquering Recoil

Adding a KICK-EEZ® recoil pad to a stock reduction system of your choice can help make your shooting experiences more enjoyable by enabling you to shoot longer without experiencing fatigue and all the negative effects caused by anticipating recoil. Together, these two recoil reducing systems work together to spread the recoil out over a longer period of time, thus creating more of a “push” than a “slap” to your face. Suffering abuse caused by recoil can lead to several bad shooting habits that adversely affect your shooting comfort and worse of all, your shooting scores. The combination of a recoil reduction system and a KICK-EEZ recoil pad also assists in helping you to attain a proper gun fit.

Championship Pedigree

Shooters wanting to increase the comfort of their shooting experiences might want to consider taking advantage of the versatility of one of the many great stock adjusting systems on the market today. KICK-EEZ is honored that several of the leading companies choose to install KICK-EEZ recoil pads on their systems. Stock adjusting systems provide vertical, horizontal and length of pull (LOP) and in most cases, due to the mounting hardware, will add an additional 1/4” to your LOP. Most of the aftermarket stock adjusters, or recoil reduction systems, have screw hole placement of 3 1/8” which is standard hole placement for most recoil pads. Below, USA National Champion and Championship of the Americas winner Ashley Carroll was kind enough to pose for a picture showing off her setup featuring a stock adjusting system, along with a KICK-EEZ Patriot Pad, one of our best sellers:

Installing Your KICK-EEZ Recoil Pad

KICK-EEZ Grind-To-Fit recoil pads come in thicknesses of 1/2”, 3/4”, 15/16”, 1 1/8” or 1 3/8", and will easily attach to the aluminum plates of most stock adjusters with little or no grinding. However, they may require that a hole be drilled in order to access the adjustable aluminum plate. If you choose to do this yourself please keep the following in mind. First of all, you will need to determine where the 1/4” hole is needed in your pad in order to match the adjustment screw of the system. Turn your recoil pad over with the base plate facing up, and drill through the base plate and the soft Sorbothane material, letting your drill exit into a piece of scrap wood. You can also use a Dremel® tool with a cone-shaped bit to create a nice, crisp hole. Helping to make all your shooting endeavors more enjoyable is the primary reason KICK-EEZ recoil pads were created 31 years ago, and the combination of a stock adjusting system and a KICK-EEZ recoil pad may certainly add to your shooting enjoyment!
