I have a Savage Axis 308 that could use a recoil pad as the one on it is getting bad. What is the size of a pad do I need, small, medium or large? I called Savage and they didn't know as they don't have replacement pads. Thanks for any help.

Custom grind to fit
I found out that the axis isn't made the old way like most synthetic stocks. This is the newer version and the pad and spacer is one piece and installing a slip on after removel makes it too short because of the spacer built into the pad and slip on over the pad makes it too long. I gotta figure something out. here is a pic of a gun like mine.

You have to take measurments of your pad ... replacement pads come in small - medium - large , the pad maker will have the dimensions of each size ... order a pad larger than the one on your rifle .
The old pad removed , the new pad screwed on and then sanded down to fit on a belt sander .
You can sand down to wood and refinish the stock or apply a layer or two of Tape on the stock and sand the new pad down to the tape ...if careful you have a close fit and don't mess up the stock finish .... be verrrry Carefulll when sanding to the tape !

I measured and with a tape I got 4 7/8" or close to that from bottom to top, would that be medium or small? Also would armour all help protect the pad? thanks

Or just get one of these. View attachment 251670
I decided to go with BEARTOOTH neoprene recoil pad, made in USA and covers over the bad look of the factory pad. Didn't use the spacers as I don't need them just something to help the looks and prevent the stickiness. Gonna save for a new stock and I hope to have enough saved before November to get one, being on a fixed income makes it hard to save much at a time. thanks for all the help
