    What did you mount the limb saver pad to? The factory pad snaps into place and there is nothing there to mount another pad via screws. I had a custom stainless steel plate made to fit behind the grooves that hold the factory pad and had it threaded for machine screws for mounting a thicker pad. It would loosen and shift around so I sh&% canned the gun.

    I've done 2 Benellis. Built them out to 15 1/4"LOP. The first one, embedded wood with epoxy glue and screwed the new pad on. It came loose in a year. The second one we used a Kickeez spacer and embedded in the stock, but we sanded the hell out of the interior of the composite stock so it was rough and fit the inlet spacer very tight. Glued it with epoxy. Stayed for 3 years now.

    Yes, I have.

    Contact Ken Rucker. He makes an aluminum plate that is held in place by the lip inside the synthetic stock. The holes in the plate are pre-drilled and threaded and Ken even furnishes the machine screws. With this plate you can install spacers and the pad of your choice.

    Ken's phone number is 903-209-5074.

    And, the arrangement you mention made of aluminum is crap that loosens and eventually the machine screws strip the threads. I tried one of those before having the custom stainless steel one made. Better to try what esetter did.

    Plus, you may end up with some guns like esetter...
