    My stock is loose and the gun has a packmair white line pad on it. There are no holes in the pad as are usually seen. I don't want to damage the gun or pad but know that there should be screw holes in it close to the edge but can't find any. Is there something unusual about the Pad. Thanks for your help.

    I'm sure the holes are there. Put some vaseline or similar on a round shank #2 screwdriver and probe until you find the holes, then the screw.

    There are holes. Someone done it right. Should be about 5/8down and about 7/8 up.

    Shooting Jack, here is what it should look like without the pad.

    Thanks for the help but I still can't find the screw holes. I will try with air with my compressor all the way up to 180 psi and see if there are any indentions or anything. I begin to wonder if it's glued on, I've never run across one glued on but it's possible. If it turns out to have screws someone did an exceptional job. Jackie B.

    The Perazzi's were glued on I believe. Someone that has removed one should come on and let you know how to remove. glenn

    I removed a Perazzi pad by very carefully opening the gap at the heel with a box cutter blade and using either monofilament line or dental floss under the pad to release the glue. That worked with the adhesive used on the Perazzi pad but it is hard to say what adhesive may have been used on a recoil pad installed by the previous owner or a gunsmith.
