Pachmayr decelerator worked on a couple of my guns.
My 7mm mag and 12 gauge 3” turkey loads.

Have a couple Limbsavers, have a couple but prefer Pachmayr decelerator or Kick-eez over the limbsaver recoil pads.

My first choice is the Pachmayr Decellerator and then the Limbsaver. Don't like the newer Remington "pillows" though.

Pachmayr. Heard a lot of people say the the limbsavers degrade and get sticky.

I've had two of the Limbsavers melt. Pachmayr or Kickeez for me. I keep a couple of the Pachmayr pads on hand .

Default Replacement recoil pads

I have a Limbsaver pad that is all jacked up. I think they had a bad run a couple of years.

They are very comfortable and work well though.

I had a Remington branded Limbsaver pad on my 25-06 that got tacky. They had a bad run on them for a few years. Remington sent me a new one free of charge.

And he wore a cowboy hat, with a big ole Texas grin.........I have Limbsavers also. Funny- usually one shot when hunting, don't really need them especially with adrenaline flowing.
