Check ebay - search for CAS or SASS - There are a couple Cowboys who sell there.

Went with a leather butt plate cover on my Lever Carbine. It has a soft, non slipping piece of leather covering the butt plate. Looks nice and works well.

I'm going to go with the leather on my 1886 45/70. It has a steel butt plate and is a little too short length of pull for us so I am going to have my son make one and build in a pad.

I'd recommend www.levergunleather.com For about $70 you can have a plain butt cover that will solve your problem and dress up you rifle as well. I doubt that anyone makes a slip on pad that will fit your rifle. Lever does beautiful work, but it takes a few months to get it. You have to trace the outline of your stock in order to get a perfect fit. Maybe someone else has a better idea. This is what he did for me on my old 94 Winchester 38-55.

You can put a strip of skate board tape on the brass butt plate. I doubt the adhesive will scar the brass. Goo Gone will clean it up whenever you remove it or replace it...

Man, I really like the idea and the look of that leather butt-cover! There are a couple of leather workers around here I'm going to check with but will be using the rubber non-slip piece for now. Thanks a bunch!

I have never used a leather butt cover. I have used an elastic butt cover/ammo holder. I didn't remove it for quite a while after I installed it. When I did remove it, there were a bunch of sticks and dirt under the cover. I would take the cover off after every few hunting trips to make sure there is no nasty stuff under there. I was lucky! Old English scratch remover got all the scratches off my gun.

Speaking of luck. I create my own luck when removing scratches. When I get a new gun with a wood stock the first thing I do is wipe the stock down with Old English scratch remover for light colored wood. Since the oil has already pigmented the entire stock when I do scratch the stock one or two light applications covers any scratches on my wood stocks. I have several guns that are over 40 years old. The wood stocks all look like new due to Old English scratch remover.
