On my al391 I purchased a gel tec and can not tell much difference between it and the factory stock pad. Do not know about the other pad you mentioned.

the Micro-core pad is the new pad from Beretta. I also purchased the gel-tec for my Gold-E and was not impressed. I want to know if the new pad is any better.

I have used both. The gel-tek was good but I think the micro core is better. I have their thinest micro core pad on my gun now. It works better than my old gel-tek at the med thickness.

Micro core is much better. Gel tek attachment system seemed like a good idea,
but they apparently didn't know the gel tek pad would warp. The gel tek will never fit right. The micro core is an excellent pad. Beretta no longer sells the gel tek.

Just ordered a couple to try myself. Still do not know the differences between the trap and the skeet/sporting pads. I ordered the trap.

so the Micro-core pad installs differently than the Gel-Tec? will it fit from Beretta or does it have to be fitted?

Beretta'a website says the micro-core pad must be adapted to replace the gel-tek. Anyone know how this is accomplished?

Not true. You just remove the screws that hold the plastic
adapters and install the micro core pad in its place. There's a lot of misinformation on the Beretta website.

Thanks guys. the Beretta web site uses the word, "fittable", was not sure what that meant. Todd.

The little holes in the stock, or spacer might need to be enlarged a little for the bumps around the screw holes on the micro core to fit in them.

I used my dremel on my 390 to put the new micro core on it. It was very simple and easy to do.


The micro core does not used the sliding wire retainer. You put screws through it and into the same holes that you did for the buttons that the wire held on to.

Ideally I would like to see kick eez make a pad with the bumps on the bottom to fit in the holes on the beretta stocks.

There is a better than average chance that I will eventually put micro cores on a couple more of mine.
