    I have purchased a Nikko EVB786 and it has a curved buttstock. Is there recoil pad made for a curved stock? I contacted limbsaver and they don't have one. Limbsaver recommended cutting the stock to make it flat which I don't really want to do. Any suggestions. Jackie B.

    It doesn't have to be cut, but that is a much easier way to go about it. What I do from time to time (when someone doesn't want the stock cut) is take a piece of plastic stock and sand it to match the contour of the butt, then glue the pad onto that piece and simply grind it like any other pad. These are a few pictures of a friend's Superposed that had sentimental value and he needed a bit more length, but understandably didn't want it cut.

    You can also do as Perazzi in Italy did for me and actually make a pad fit the curve without the piece shown above.

    They simply glued on a pad onto the curve, in my case a convex curve, using contact cement, as all Perazzi pads are installed with.

    Does this Nikko resemble a rifle with a plastic stock? Injection molded? Todd

    Here is a Kick-eez pad I installed on my Parker. Although I had to use AcraGlass for the spur, you won't have to worry about that. Kick-ee pads have a 1/4" hard spacer. Grind the spacer down to 1/8", this will make it flexable, then mount the pad onto the stock using the 2 existing screws. Drill a hole in the pad just over half way down. This will draw the pad into the curve. Finish like any other recoil pad.

    I forgot to add that after drilling or punching out the pad for a hole just slightly more than half way down, insert a 3rd screw to draw the pad to the stock.

    Thanks for your help. I will try to figure out which will be the best/easiest and go from there. Jackie B.



    Gentleman, it looks similiar to a Win 101 with a wood stock.
