Default Slip on recoil pads

My 30-30 Marlin has the hard butt pad and I guess I'm getting older, my shoulder just can't take shooting it much more than 5 or 6 times. Last time I did my shoulder hurt for two weeks. I did buy a shoulder pad and it works great but is awkward to use. I might consider putting a new permanent pad on at some point but for now was wondering about the slip-ons. Anyone know anything about these?

Other than being rather ugly they are fine. If you leave them on for extended periods of time they can discolor the stock.

I can live with ugly, although I was looking at the Kick Killers with the velcro fasteners and they don't look half bad. Lot better than the black rubber ones I've seen. Are they any good though? They look like they'd be easy to put on and take off, definitely don't want to discolor the stock.

I would suggest cutting the stock and putting a good pad like a Decelerater on. Atleast your gun wont look like it had a cast on it and your length of pull will remain the same.

Would you recommend getting a gunsmith to do the work? I've heard it can be a bit tricky to get them on right.

The big thing is not screwing up the whole 'cutting the stock' part. Beyond that worst case you have to buy a new pad.

Well mountainman, that's the part I worry about, I don't want to screw up my baby ya know. Maybe it's best I go with a gunsmith. Any idea how much cost is involved in getting that done?

If you bring them the pad etc. it should be $100 or less.

Hmmm, I may have to go with the slip-ons at least for awhile. I've got a couple of other guns I'm wanting to buy, and only so much budget (according to the wife) to do it with.
