    I would like some input on different jigs for fitting recoil pads. What type do you like and where can I purchase one. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me. Also best place to buy kickezz recoil pads.

    The Graco one is excellent, even better than the old standard Miles Gilbert. Click the link. They sell the pads too.

    In my opinion, and I seem to have many, don't use the Graco or its twin by B-Square. Reason is that the pads all have straighted finished sides, whereas the stock itself always tapers out fron-to-back.

    I have used about every one there is and the Brownell's jig, that resembles a sheephearder's hook is by far the best. It can be adjusted to give the correct toe anngle AND the front-to-back taper.

    I think I have a picture of it and will no go look for it to past in here.

    However, if you are dead set on the Graco/B-Square, I'd be happy to sell you mine for less than I paid for it.

    Unfortunately, the B&R has been backordered for quite some time and I'm told that Brownell's (the only supplier) can no longer get them!

    B-Square is no longer in business, I'm told. The Graco unit appears to be pretty much the same, though.

    I know nothing of the Pad Pal, except that it is sold by Gunsmither Tools and sells for $49.95. Looks like it might be on a par with the B&R device.

    I saw that the B&R was $125. I have two and together they aren't worth more than $50 for the pair. Boy, no wonder B&R is out of business.

    Whiz, I'm confused. You like the sheepherder's hook style which is what the B&R is but you don't like the B&R. Is it substantially different than the Brownell's jig?
