Looks good, Jason, those ducks better watch out! I believe you’ll like the Kick-Eez recoil pad, I took my Beretta O/U to Briley’s to get it fitted to me and the pad looks like it came on the gun! Good luck!

Thanks fellas.. Amazon delivered those dang belts at 8:30 last night in the middle of us sitting out front, giving out candy, so the recoil pad should be done by today if I can get it right.

Any other day Amazon would have dropped off by noon

Off to a good start. Got some fine grit sanding to do but it has gone really well so far. Just go slow and it was a piece of cake.

The hard part is shaping the toe without a recoil pad fixture. I did t want to spend $50 on something I could eyeball and might only do a could of times in my lifetime.

Thank you for showing this. Would you consider doing a similar thread in the DIY section?

Man I really need to slow down and quit doing too many things at once. Fixed it.

So the big boar won again and wouldnít turn for a shot with my Sniper Light on him ready to go. He and I have been battling for awhile and he continues to win. I almost shot him in between the front leg and head just to get him off this feeder so the other pigs will come around more often.




Anyway, because he foiled me again I was able to get home and run the 400 grit with furniture polish. Turned out pretty good. Probably not gunsmith precise quality as a whole but dang close and certainly better than I thought I was going to be able to do. For a synthetic stock on my waterfowl and backup dove gun Iím happy. The only thing I think I might have to do is cut the tip of the bottom end so it doesnít hang up on my shirt when I bring it down. But Iíll wait to see if itís a problem. On the previous length, the gun was too long and it hung. I trimmed the point to slide better on the stock pad. LOP is now 13.75Ē... .... between that and losing weight I hope to meet in the middle for the perfect LOP.

Looks good! Strange that gunsmiths donít wanna do this when it seems like it was fairly easily done by you.

I agree. I assume that the inner framework in the Benelli stock is not in others . Benelli having the third hole in that frame work and KickEez having a replacement pad that lined up with it made it much more easy than having to use JB weld/wood and create my own mount holes. I could have cut off another inch using that third hole and been fine with this pad. Technically, with what I cutoff, I could have used the original holes as well with another pad. I might have needed a shorter bottom screw there but it would have been useable.

I know this might be hard to believe, but I need to do this to ALL my guns!

I could never imagine how the grind to fit pads would look. That's what's kept me from doing them. You may have inspired me to do them now.

Nice work, Jason!

LMAO....

You're welcome ....With you wood working and taxidermy attention to detail along with your tools, it would be a piece of cake for you I bet. The good thing is once you get the gun right, the recoil pad can be messed up and it'll only cost another $40 to start again. Once I got the gun side done I was breathing easier..

This video and guy were very helpful. I really liked where he said "practice on the outside silver. You don't have to get good until you get to the scribe line." And I just just that...... I took my time spinning it around practicing in the silver and finished it up by the line. My pad is thinner than most. But it was just like my stock pad thickness wise. I didn't want to have to cut off anymore gun than I wanted to. With as little as I had to take off, 120 was the heaviest grit used and went to 240 as i got closer to the scribe line. Then pulled out the 300 and 400 grit sand blocks and wet sanded /polished did the rest.
