Recoil pad reco.

I need recommendations on adjustable recoil pads for my trap gun. It's a 12 ga Browning Citory CX that I currently have fitted with a Morgan #5 straight shoulder plate. The set up works okay, but its an old pad that I put on a new gun and I am looking for something that may be better in terms of adjustability, comfort and recoil absorption. Thanks in advance.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Re: Recoil pad reco.

not sure what an adjustable recoil pad is but i have limbsavers on all my shotguns.

SVL also makes a strap on protective shooting pad that the shooter wears. its made for trap and skeet shooting.

i know it blocks the heavy recoil of a slug gun

Re: Recoil pad reco.

I have always liked the Isis Recoil System. Costs more than a regular pad but you can custom fit the length and you can set the system for light, medium and heavy springs. I have one on a Browning 425 and a Browning BSS.

Re: Recoil pad reco.

Almost everyone I shoot trap with uses one of the Graco models. My BT-99 has the standard Graco without the recoil reducer. It gives full comb and butt adjustment. Most of the shooters around here (Wernersville, PA) use Carl Holzman in Womeldorf for installation and fit. Top notch work and very reasonably priced. Hope this helps.

Carl is still doing the fitting and installation work? He put on a soft comb for my Browning Sporting Clays years ago. He's a craftsman and a fine gentleman as well. Thanks for the tip on Graco too.

Re: Recoil pad reco.

I would look at the jones stock adjuster. It goes up, down, toe in, and toe out. Depending the the exact model, they are $60-$80. I would cap that off with either a kick-eez pad or a gooey pad. Kick-Eez has always been the standard but a few of the guys at my club are switching to the gooey and like them better.

Another good suggestion. Thanks.
