How do I select the correct KICK-EEZ® Recoil Pad for my gun?
KICK-EEZ® Pre-Fit Pads are a quick fix; two screws out and two screws in and your pad is installed. Unfortunately, stock variances, age, temperature and humidity all play a role in finding a Pre-Fit Pad to fit your stock. The best thing to do is to check the templates for our Pre-Fit Pads by printing two or three of the templates that are closest to your stock measurements, remove your old pad, measure the length and width, and stand your gun on the template. The accuracy of the pad is on the line of the template not on the inside. Screw hole placement is critical for synthetic stocks; use your old pad to compare screw location on the printed template. You can
sand our Pre-Fit Pads the very same way you sand our Grind-To-Fit Pads. All our Pre-Fit Pads are 1 1/8” thick, so this may be an issue for your LOP but it will give you maximum recoil reduction.
If you are unable to locate a Pre-Fit Pad that will fit your stock, then you will need to check our Large Grind-To-Fit Pads for a pad that will fit. Our Grind-To-Fit Pads are exactly the same as our Pre-Fit Pads; they simply come in more styles, sizes and thicknesses of 1/2”, 3/4”, 15/16”, 1 1/8” and 1 3/8”. Their screw holes are 3 1/8” apart and the pads are 5 5/8″ long x 2″ wide. You can view all the styles and sizes of our GTF Pads on our website. KICK-EEZ Recoil Pads have no steel plates or hollow spots; therefore, grinding one to fit your stock is very easy.
FYI: We have a “grinding video” on our website that walks you through the steps involved in grinding a KICK-EEZ® Recoil Pad to fit your stock.
