Default Grind - To - Fit or Slip - On Recoil Pad

Re -Stocking my Mauser from a plastic stock to Original wood ..
I can do my own Grind - To - fit pad but what do you think about the newer Pacmayer Decelerator Slip - On Recoil Pads

Yes I agree with the slip - on and just downloaded the Pachmeyer sizing chart. Going to square the stock butt 1st.
Actually a nice laminated K98 stock that was cut down...

My bro in law has been telling me how nice the slip on is that he put on his rifle.

I just can't force myself to tell him how it looks and hurt his feelings.

Yup. A slip on is a temporary fix. I will always grind to make it look good.
