Default Grind to Fit recoil pads

I have a Savage model 110 in 7 Mag that i got from my Dad. The recoil pad is abysmal and hard as a rock.

What goes into changing them out besides the two screws? I see several model recoil pads are "grind to fit". What is the best method/grinder to get the best fit and finish?
Or do they make a pad that is specific for my rifle stock, because i have yet to find one.

That is a pretty popular rifle. It would make me think you can get a pre-fit from here:

https://kickeezproducts.com/pre-fit-recoil-pads/

there are templates that you use to determine your fit.

As far as grinding, generally a belt sander and you have to protect the stock. I have used masking tape. But, haven't used a grind to fit in many years.

I believe the "KZ-110" fits your Savage. But, I would use a template to make sure.

Thanks,

Default Agree with the above...

there should be plenty of recoil pads for that gun. Checkout Limbsavers. I replaced the crappy Remington pad on my 700 Ti and also replaced the stock pad on my Browning A-bolt with Limbsavers prefit pads. Its a breeze.

X2 Lims Airtech. I put one on my Tikka T3 7mm Mag and don't feel any recoil. Use the original 2 screws to mount.

Number 10807 is supposed to fit most Savage models. Call them up to check. Why grind if you don't have to?

Kickeeze are very good pads and like others have said should have one to fit your Savage already

I would try and locate a pre fit one if you can find it.

I have done a grind to fit on a Howa 243 I cut down for my kids.

When I needed one for my sons O/U, I had Brileys in Houston do it. Looks factory and not that much more than buying the grind to fit pad yourself.
