Most Asked Recoil Pad Question, January 2018
At KICK-EEZ®, we pride ourselves on offering world-class customer support to our customers before and after the sale of any of our products, especially recoil pads. We regularly work with customers from around the world helping folks properly select and install KICK-EEZ recoil pads to their shotguns and rifles. During these interactions, we choose to share certain questions and answers with our larger audience hoping this ‘Most Asked’ information is useful to you as well. For January, the most frequently asked question was related to screw hole placement: Will the screw holes on KICK-EEZ Grind-to-Fit recoil pads match the screw holes in the aluminum plate of most stock adjusting systems on the market today?
Question: Will the screw holes on KICK-EEZ Grind-to-Fit recoil pads match the screw holes in the aluminum plate of most stock adjusting systems on the market today?
Answer: ALL KICK-EEZGrind-To-Fit recoil pads have a screw hole separation of 3 1/8” apart. This matches most guns, including most of the stock-adjusting systems available today.
Matching Recoil Pads to Stock-Adjusting Systems
ALL KICK-EEZ Grind-To-Fit recoil pads have a screw hole separation of 3 1/8” apart, center-to-center. This separation matches most guns, including most of the stock-adjusting systems available for sale on the market today. The threaded SAE screw holes in the aluminum plate of the stock-adjusting systems and KICK-EEZ® standard Grind-to-Fit (GTF) pads will be one less thing for you to worry about when selecting a KICK-EEZ recoil pad for the stock adjusting system you purchase. All you need to do is grind our pad to match the aluminum plate of the stock adjusting system you select, no need to worry about whether or not the holes will line up. Many of KICK-EEZ Pre-Fit Pads also match this standard screw hole location of 3 1/8” apart, center-to-center.
Remember: Even if one of our Pre-Fit recoil pads doesn’t fit exactly, they can also be ground to fit the very same as KICK-EEZ® Grind-To-Fit recoil pads.
