    I have two Browning Citori guns with what appears to be Browning recoil reducers and Browning recoil pads. One of the guns is the plus model. The other is a grade IV. The recoil pads do not have holes in them where one would normally remove the screws. How do you remove the pads?

    Are there rubber plugs in the pad face filling the holes?

    Diamond Grade is right on the money. I have a Citori Plus that

    I just changed over to a Gooey Pad. Trick is to use a thin Phillips

    Head. I coat mine with a small amount of oil to make insertion

    easier. But first you have to find the "slits". You can use a small

    flat blade screwdriver or a knife to do this. My Citori is approaching

    20 years old so they are hard to find, BUT they are there.

    I will look closer. Pulling on the side of the pads to try to separate the pad in the center did not show a slit. There are no plugs in the holes on this model. I have seen the pads with plugs and the plugs are normally obvious.

    Slow, I recently went through the same thing and someone told me to take both thumbs and place them on the pad and apply pressure down and out and gradually work my way down the pad. Lo and behold I found them and they weren't where I expected them. They were a half inch from where I thought they would be. Jackie B.

    The trick to keeping those holes invisible is to take a long Phillips bit, the kind a couple inches long, and grind the hex portion, the shank, round. This keeps the flats from pulling/tearing material away from the slits. Put a little lube on the shank and you can remove/install the pad without tearing the slits up leaving them invisible as before.

    Push down hard with both thumbs as suggested by Shooting Jack. Eventually, you will find the slits. A little lube on the screwdriver will keep the pad looking nice. Light oil is fine but I usually use spit. Spit seems always to be handy for me.

    I got it apart. The recoil paid was glued to the backer plate. No screws at all. If you cannot find the split then that may be what you have. Someone may have added the recoil reducer aftermarket. I thought it was factory.
