Post some pics of how your doing the recoil pad. I’ve thought about doing this on a Ruger as well just not sure how to reattach the pad.

I don’t know what you could do but adding some weight in that stock would help with recoil I think.

Get two wood dowels about 3/4 " in diameter and one inch long.Glue them in place where the butt pad screws go. Fill the buttstock with spray foam and trim it even with back of stock when cured.

Get a Pachmayr Decelerator pad close to the dimensions of the butt stock and transfer screw holes to the wood dowels. Drill some pilot holes and mount the new pad.

Scribe some lines around the pad, and use a belt sander to to trim the pad to the lines. Remount pad and finish sanding to profile.

Looks like you did just fine. If it a a small calibre... .223 just a small padded butt plate should work...heck just glue one on. You can get another stock fairly easily when the time comes.

have fun...

edit... Radar's post sounds pretty good...

I did the same for my daughter last year on a Remington 700. To put the recoil pad back on I cut a section of 2x6 and shaped it to fill in end of the stock. Took a bit of sanding and shaping with a belt sander but it worked. I then filled the opening of stock with spray foam and epoxied the wood piece in place. Then able to screw recoil pad ( which also had to be ground down to match stock) to wooden insert. It has held up through several shooting sessions and three hunts just great.

The stock is a lot smaller so I’m going to use a slip on pad. He’s only 5 so I took a lot off. It’s a 6.5 creedmoor

I am not a huge fan of new cartridges but the 6.5 cm really leaves room to grow. Unlike the .243 in my opinion. He could re-stock that weapon and shoot it for life.

That’s the plan. I’m just hoping he sticks with it

Best recoil pad made in my experience and opinion. A true recoil-tamer, and it tolerates most of the solvents which turn other pads gooey very well.

This. But I had a fellow glue a shaped piece of aluminum to attach the pad to.

Good for you to get him a rifle that fits.

I use a fine tooth blade on a sliding miter saw to cut stocks down. Make sure the stock is level and angle is correct. Don't assume it's 90 degrees to the comb. If not you are going to change the pitch.

Did about the same thing as above, less the foam fill, with a single shot H&R 243 my son uses. Worked fine for several years as he grew, then this past season I bought a "stock" stock for it from H&R.

Good luck!
