    I put a new, after market stock with pistol grip on my Mossberg 500, but it came with a very stiff recoil pad. I'm trying to put on a more user friendly recoil pad on the new stock, but none of the ones I find have screw holes that line up with the screw holes in the stock. I put a slip-on pad over it for now, but that kind of sucks and the stock maker is no help. Any ideas?

    Pioneer - I believe that both Limbsaver & Decelerator will provide you with a template that can be used for "most" applications on an order to fit model. I think you can print them off, compare to your personal application and order direct or through vendors. I personally prefer the Decelerator model, but both of them work well. We don't use the pre-fit ones in the shop, we buy the grind to fit models, but I like the product and have never had any problems with either brand.

    You might want to check out this site for the Limbsaver model.

    Midway offers a direct replacement for the wood stock, so if your screw holes are the same, this one should work. Designed to fit within .050" tolerance.

    Hope that helps.

    pioneer - I was going back through some old forums and found this one. Did you ever get the recoil pad changed out on your Mossy?
