^^^^^ This is my situation as well ^^^^^The safe is in the basement, no sunlight and coolest and driest spot in the house. Nice even temps year round. Heat and sunlight are not the factor.No chemicals or oils applied to pad to cause it to break down.
Mine did the same on a model 7. Gravel agency (Remington warranty agent in Canada) replaced it no charge. Exact fit. Pad never exposed to heat, etc. Don’t know if the new one will be any better.I have several rifles that have limb saver recoil pads on them, and a couple of them are starting to get sticky. They are actually starting to stick to the bottom of the gun safe. Is there anything I can do to stop them from deteriorating? Thank you
Buy the slip on version.Not that big of a deal for one of them, but one is a grinder fit that I had to have a gunsmith do for me. I hate to have to pay for him to regrind another pad. Probably not a big deal to do by myself, but it is on a nice rifle and I hate to scratch up the stock
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
