Yay but only because I like feeling the cushy embrace against my shoulder
I am lonely
Yay, if you actually shoot high-recoil rounds.
Or for long periods of time (regardless of caliber) right?
Would they be useful for shooting 5.56mm?
I don't know anyone but journalists that think 5.56 in an AR has any appreciable recoil.
most stocks have a thin pad of rubber in the back which is generally enough for 5.56. I've gotten a little soreness the day after but never really any hurting hurting. there's also these for magpul stocks. I've never needed one but they can't hurt any. You might get called a pussy by some gay who cares about other peoples preferences, though.
I put the thicker one on my UBS, 50 Beowulf. Def a nice upgrade.
hijacking OPs thread to ask which is everyone's favorite
They're unfair to short people because we need them the most and are least able to deal with the extra length of pull.
My grandpa had to get one for his 30-30 because at his age it smarts pretty bad and he hasn't been shooting his whole life
Makes a lot of sense for the elderly, children, women, and twinks.
as a twink i can confirm this. after putting a pad on my 10/22 i can fire more than 10 rounds without being sore for the next week
I have some slip on rubber pads for my WW1 bolt actions because shooting prone hurts like the dickins on my collar bone.
Shooting standing up is no problem tho.
i wish the leather slip-on ones weren't all ugly and chinese
Just get some leather and make one…. That’s a pretty easy beginner leatherwork project. Mock it out in tagboard if your not sure on the right shape then use those as a template to cut the leather..
I got one of these for my Henry .22 lever action. Not for the recoil, which is nonexistent, but because the brass buttplate is so smooth it will slip off my shoulder constantly
Yay. If it makes people happy then why not.
Rubber or memory foam?
Depends on the types.
Yeah because it increased the LOP on my shotgun by an inch and its more stable when i lean the gun up against something.
No idea if the extra cushion does anything, it's a 20 gauge.
It fucking kills me every time I see "yay" instead of "yea" or in "yea or nay", is this one of those ironic jokes?
Me too anon, blame public schools being shit. Same with fucking up analogies and turning them into spoonerisms.
It's aye. Aye, you bastard.
Yea. I inherited my late father's shotgun and needed to increase the length of pull.
I put these on my KSG's and am happy with the $20 I spent
I was looking at this one since it's pretty cheap and seems like it has a good amount of depth to absorb recoil.
Whatcha think about it?
You WILL shoulder the metal buttplate
You WILL be happy.
Crescent and curved buttplates are actually far superior to shotgun buttplates if you shoot them correctly. They were for shooting offhand accurately and they really do work
Currently using pic. rel. on my service weapon (M/10)/(C8 IUR). Im the only one in my Company of around a 130. who was issued this stock with the recoil pad. Its honestly pretty nice when compared to the plain “m4” style stock but it’s not better that the other stocks I’ve used like the “mission first” ar stock.
>Yay or nay?
Yay if you need a quick way to increase length of pull (regardless of caliber). For recoil, nay if anything under 45-70
I have a 4570 single shot and the thin scarf for this really doesn't feel like it's doing much wrapped around the stock as a cheek rest/budget recoil pad. Should I duct tape a travel sized mypillow to the back for maximum PrepHoleomfort?
if your pad is too soft you end up just giving the gun standoff to accelerate towards you.
seems a good opportunity to choose a shape of buttplate the better suits the size and shape of your shoulder
Buy a shoulder pad and never worry about buying new stock pads for each gun again
honeslty i wish i would have put one of these on my Mosin Nagant. I had a carbine version, M44?
damn that thing had a hard painful punch
Its just shoes for guns.
yay for length of pull adjustment without an expensive or non existent aftermarket stocks
meh otherwise, shooting technique does more for recoil reduction than anything
how should i improve shooting technique for lightweight shotguns
Pull it into your shoulder more tightly because you're not pulling it in tightly enough I promise you. And pay attention to your stance.
>t. never shot anything above 25 lbs of recoil
funny you say that, shotguns are my favorite guns and the ones I shoot most often
if you're not physically in shape, that's your first problem, go lift some weights, you're probably a lanklet or a fat fuck with 0 muscle mass which doesn't help
second, you really need an appropriate sized stock, most shotgun stocks are too long for average sized people, you want to put the stock on your breast and pull it in snugly when you shoot, you also want to consider your stance depending on targets, when I'm shooting slugs or buck on a flat range I like to square up to the target, tuck the gun in and lean forward a bit
for skeet/trap I like to stand upright and left foot forward a bit to pivot to targets easier
hope this helps your skill issue
awful post. bad form and target loads for a 12 gauge are less than 18 lbs of recoil, barely above a 44 mag. go shoot at ducks from a sitting blind and get back to us
>completely ignores slugs and buck
>muh duck huntin
skill issue cletus LMAO
not likely, I shoot a rifle with far more recoil than your shotgun
When sighting in my hunting rife and just shooting the hunting rifle for fun, I use a pad (10 or more rounds). But when I'm hunting I don't bring the pad.
