    I want to put a recoil pad on my Remington 1100 that was purchased in the late 1970s. I want to be able to use the existing holes. Remington tells me that they don’t currently make a recoil pad that will fit. Can anyone suggest a relatively inexpensive solution? Thanks.

    I would get a grind to fit Kick-eez pad and you'll be set for life.

    Either a Limbsaver or an Xcoil will absorb more recoil than anything else.
    I've had KickEez on several (still have one on a target 11-87) shotguns and took them off in favor of the superior recoil-absorbing abilities of the LS and XC. Both of them make pads to fit the 1100.

    Kickeez makes a universal pad that has a slot for the bottom hole to accomodate different screw spacings

    Watch the Limbsavers. The last few I had needed replacement when they turned "gummy". A custom fit universal pad might do the trick. Measure the holes spacing and the size of the buttstock and you can match them up to the diagrams that most manufacturers provide.

    Was looking at the Limbsaver websites and it keeps listing it for the 1100 with a synthetic stock. It also says a curved stock (which mine slightly has) will need gunsmithing!

    Looks like I'll have to go with a slip-on if I don't want to modify my shotgun.

    If you don't care about looks just buy a Pachmayr and redrill the holes to match.
