Im not certain I understand the request. Can you explain so as to make it more clear to me? Are you wanting to layer in a recoil pad typr material to the homemade micarta I describe?

Yes, basically a rubber pad to help absorb the recoil. I think with the cloth and resin combination, there is little recoil absorption going on there. what I have is an old Charles Daley 20 O/U for the wife which has a thin hard butt plate; l'd like to soften it up for her. I did buy a close fit but it don't match the wood exactly.

Rubber recoil pads are made oversize and meant to be ground down to fit the stock.

Ah..... your right. any other use would require a DIY GUY!


But then again, if a person set their mind against it, it probably won't work.
