    I own a Browning BT-99 Plus (the one with the adjustable butt plate/pad). I'm considering changing the recoil pad to something a little more current in design.

    The current pad is a Browning-marked Pachmayr white line trap pad. However, there are no holes in the pad showing where the screws were mounted to the plate. I've probed without puncturing the pad. How were these mounted?

    Is is possible that they were press-fit some way?

    Thanks in advance.

    Best,
    Dennis

    Dennis, it will probably take some close examination but a small slit will exist in the pad where screws were inserted through the pad and into the metal butt plate. The spacing is consistent with most recoil pads. A number two phillips head round shaft screw driver with a little grease or vaseline on the shaft and a some probing should do the trick.

    They're there. I swore up and down they weren't there too. Oil up a #2 Phillips and start pushing about 1/2 -3/4" from the top edge. If you're sure you're going to junk the recoil pad, you can always slice a chunk out of it to expose the screws.
