Re: Removing R3 recoil pad
Cut the old rubber part of the pad off with a knife. Then put the blow dryer on the remaining baseplate for about 15 minutes straight to get it really hot. It will then peel off with some effort. Do not pry against the stock as the fiberglass is very thin and it probably would get damaged. I used channel lock pliers to grab it and once it was soft from the heat it came right off.
I epoxied in some wood dowels into the foam to screw to. Once that set up I then ground and installed new pads like any other stock.
Some kids want to be a fireman or a doctor to help people. I wanted to be a gunsmith.
