I use one on my Marlin 1894 lever, and it works well.

They are only 12-15$.

I use a LimbSaver slip on pad on my 450 Bushmaster. I can shoot it as much as I want to and have no shoulder pain at all. These things are amazing and I recommend them.

I bought a Husqvarna 98, 9.3 x 62mm, and put on a limbsaver medium size slip on. Cost was about $35.
A huge difference between shooting with / without the pad - it is very comfortable to shoot.
Well worth the money in my opinion.

That is a fact on wood stocks. I use a limbsaver slip on for a few rifles. If yours has a butt pad on it it will change the LOP. I'm part ape, so I like a long length of pull.

You really don't need to cut the stock at all. Companies like limb saver make pads that fit like a glove. They replace the original whether steel or rubber.

Rocshaman,I have several slip on pads setting in a box. I'll give you one if you tell me the height of your stock,and if I have one that will fit it.
Two of mine are the Limbsaver's-One is 5" tall,the other is 5 1/4". Then I have a Pachmayr pad that is 5 1/2" tall.
I don't use them,and would be happy to send one to you. If any of these will fit on your stock,send me a PM with your address,and I'll send it to you.

I'll check Tx, if you don't mind waiting a bit. I have my guns in an office at another location for now. If it helps, the gun is a standard Marlin 336W 30-30.

Gunsmiths vary quite a bit on their charges. - You never know until you ask.

I used to charge twenty bucks, plus the cost of the pad - but that's just me.

It's hard if you're not used to it but once you are - its a no-brainer.
