Limbsaver pad

Postby Skrippa » Thu Jan 12, 2006 12:39 pm

I am thinking of installing a Limbsaver pad on my Beretta Pintail shotgun. I have seen some comments regarding the fact that the pads are "sticky" and grab your clothing. Anyone have any comments and/or remedies regarding this.
They sound close

Limbsaver pads are not sticky per say. But if you are replacing a pad on your pintail it may be thicker than your factory pad thus making your length of pull longer. During hunting if you are wearing a heavy jacket it may catch on your jacket pulling in jacket material as you are swinging on a bird causing you to not get the gun into your shoulder correctly. When I add a recoil pad I ensure that the pad thickness is the same as the original pad or I cut the stock to accomodate the thicker pad. My shotguns are set up for a specific length of pull and if I shorten or increase the stock length I do not shoot where I am looking. But limbsaver pads are good product and should not be sticky as in glue.

I put one on my girlfriends gun, and they are great as far as reducing recoil.

Skrippa, I know what you mean about the stickiness of them. They are a softer rubber than most recoil pads, which makes them catch on clothes a little more.
