    Need to replace recoil pad on my pss stock, what would be a good 1" pad for it. Don't really want a limbsaver pad it would work if that is what it would take. Do they make a pad set up for this or what? Thanks Oldfamily

    Oldfamily ,

    I read here somewhere -a good technique to get the pad off was to put the stock in the freezer overnight then pry it out ,the cold makes the glue hard and it comes out much easier.
    As to which pad will fit -i'm not sure but they make the models that you can sand down to fit w/a beltsander.
    Hope this helps a little.-Mike
