    I have a Browning A-bolt with a wood stock and am trying to take the factory pad off and I think that it is glued on. Anyone on here know how to get them off??? Heat? Cut it? Don't want to hurt the wood so I figured that I would ask on here.

    Should be secured by 2 wood screws through the pad. Take a close look, the rubber may have sealed up the holes.

    I've got an a-bolt also, although mine is synthetic stock. You should see 2 shallow depressions in the pad where the screws are located. With mine I cut through that area with a utility knife. Once cut through I was able to easily remove the two screws.
