    i asked about recoil pads recently for my pardner pump 12 gauge, i have measured my stock and found that i need the small size. when installing a pachmayr, limbsaver, or allen slip on pad will it work if i take my old pad off? i'm not a tall or long armed person and leaving my old one on will make a length of pull thats not right. so my question is if i take my old pad off will the slip on still work as in holding on and not slipping? thanks

    It should, most slip on recoil pads we're intended for use on guns fitted with a simple butt plate, metal, plastic, etc.

    Why not get a grind to fit Limbsaver pad?

    Bench grinder, angle grinder, Dremel tool, lots of DIY options for grinding a recoil pad. Just my $0.02.

    I wasn't terribly impressed with what I saw in stores. I use limbsavers.
