Hey all..

Finally got to shoot some of the guns I've been collecting lately... Any recommendations for a slip on recoil pad for the 91/30 and the k98 guns? The metal butt plates are sure hard on the shoulder when they kick!

I was looking at the small Butler Creek ($12) and small Limb Saver ($35) on the Midway site.

Thanks in advance! :thumb:

A slip-on recoil pad is a good idea for 2 reasons. The obvious is that it reduces the felt recoil, but it also increases the length-of-pull, which I normally find to be too short in mil-surp firearms. You can probably get one a little cheaper at Wal-Mart.

I have a Bushnell outlet store less than a mile from my house, and just bought 2 Butler Creek pads for $2 a piece, there. Haven't put them on any rifles yet, though. I do have an old one on a Swiss K-31, and it works great.

I have a Beartooth recoil pad that is neoprene or something and slips on over the butt of my M38. My dad has one for his Steyr M95 as well. It was something like $12 and has multiple different thicknesses of foam inserts. I can shoot my Mosin carbine all day with that on.

I picked up a cheap rubber one from Dunhams for under $10 bucks.
Works fine.

Kick-Eez makes a great slip on pad, that has different pads you can put in depending on the amount of recoil, and to adjust the pull. Hope this helps.

I got a Limb Saver small slip on at WallyWorld for under $20, might have even been under $10, can't remember. Worked great on everything I wanted to put it on, Mosin, K31, Mauser, NEF shotgun. It really worked great too.

I used to shoot NRA hipower rifle matches with an 03-A3 Springfield....It had a cutdown GI stock and steel Buttplate.
I used a cheap slip on pad with a 1/4 spacer for length of pull and a face cloth taped on the stock to line up the sights.
The butt pad made that 06 alot easier to shoot for 60 rounds. So try a few slipons and see which ones work best for you.

Thanks all... I ordered a few of the Beartooth pads from Brownells and they seem to be just what the doctor ordered! :thumb:

+1 on the Beartooth.

I buy mine at Foxridge outfitters web site. They are the cheapest I found if you factor in shipping. Some places are a few $ less but charge much more shipping.

I have 4 that a swap back and forth between rifles.

I recommend checking out Midwayusa's website for the PAST Recoil shield. Good price and it works. You wear it instead of putting it on a rifle, so only one is needed.

I have one of those and feel its not enough for rifles that really kick...like my Mausers. The slip on alone works. The shoulder worn pad is fine for my Enfield or K-31 but I use the slip on or both when firing a Mauser. My 2 cents.
