Did the search and could not find this but I am sure it's been hashed before, I have a MX-8 style stock with the original Perazzi pad that need replaced, is that sucker glued on? If so whats the best way to remove it?


Thanks, Rick

Heat up the pad using hair dryer, pry open the edge, use thin blade knife wedge into the opening. Heat, slice, repeat.

'saw it off' with mono fishing line or dental floss.

really.

put the stock in a well-padded vise, get a blade and make a tiny gap 'twixt pad & wood at the toe and ... 'saw'.

Perazzi glues their pad on with contact cement similar to Elmers solvent based contact cement.

You MUST score the edge where the black plastic meets the wood ALL THE WAY AROUND the butt-stock. Failure to do so, may find you pulling small bits/flakes of finish coat from the wood. Not a good thing.

I take a very flexible machinist's metal ruler, hold it darn steady in line with the mating of the black recoil pad's plastic and the wood, and scribe a line all the way around the stock. I then, carefully, scribe the pad on one of its flats on the side of the stock, deep enough to get through the poly finish on the wood/black plastic. I then eye-dropper in lacquer thinner at this point, and then insert the stock in a vice, with the vice (rubber jawed) grabbing the edge of the pad at the plack plastic. I rock the pad back-and-forth gentely, and continue eye-drop inmore lacqure thinner to disolve the contact cement.

Eventually, I get the pad off, then clean the contact glue off the wood with more lacquer thinner. I've never been good enough to get a pad off with a heat gun.

I had pretty good luck with my wife's hair dryer, but remember to heat the pad, not the stock.

Well that was pretty easy, I scored around the pad, thanks Whiz, cut off the rubber with mono, heated the hard plastic with my wife's hair drier and managed to get a small screw driver under the plastic that gave up pretty easy, cleaned off the dried glue residue and fit a new keck-eez.

Thanks again guys your help was greatly appreciated.

I'm wondering if anyone has encountered a Remington rifle pad that is apparently glued on. I just bought a new Model 700LSS, which was discontinued three years ago and was sitting in its box is my local gun shop for perhaps 10 years. The recoil pad is the hard rubber pad that Remington used to use and I bought a fitted Remington SuperCell pad to replace it (the rifle is a .338RUM, so a softer pad might be important). But I found the old pad is attached with both screws and, I guess, glue. I removed the screws and tried loosening the pad by hand but I can't as much as open a gap between it and the wood.

Any ideas?

Where can I get the wood inserts (gun nutz ?) that enable you to use a machine screw (8/32, I think ?) to secure the recoil pad to the stock?
