On thursday my dad, brother, and I went shooting my Izhevsk (sorry if I spelled that wrong) 91/30 made in 1943. It was mostly a function test but dang was it fun. It kicked harder than I thought, any recoil reducing accessories I can get? It was a good trip and my family and I all enjoyed it.

Limbsaver butt pads work well, or so I'm told, no shame in using one.

Heck of a lot softer than steel. Nice rifle btw.

Thanks; I really like it.
Would the small size slip on limb saver fit the butt?

Cool. They can be fun. Shooting from a bench dies let you appreciate he much they do kick though.

What type of ammo did you try? How was the accuracy?

The small is too tight, the medium works fine.

I used MFS 174 gr FMJ; it was the cheapest I could find locally. This was more of a function test so none of us were going for accuracy.

There's a few online vendors who offer a M/N recoil pad for @

9 $.
Is it a recoil pad or stock extender? I have found some cheap stock extenders but would rather have a quality recoil absorption system.

I've found the rubber stock extender also increases the

LOP, which is a big help if you're taller, with longer arms.

I can't say if there's a "quality recoil absorption system"

out there for M/Ns. If there is, it might double the value of the

rifle, when you install it...

I'm just gonna order a limbsaver. It slips on, adds an inch to the LOP and reduces recoil. Just what I need.

I only shoot benchrest and the next most powerful thing I shot was a 20 gauge with birdshot. I am sure with experience I will get used to it.

A quick fix until your pads come in. Use the sole from a shoe and duct tape it to the butt.:)
Good idea but I probably won't go shooting again until after the pad comes in.

Well the pad came in with some stripper clips today. Haven't shot it yet but here's some bad cell phone pics.
