    Leather covered recoil pads

    Who does a very good job of them?

    Gaskill doesn't do leather pads, and I can't get hold of Lawrence Bradley.

    Cheers.

    Why, you got a fetish or something? Only thing they're good for is trapping humidity (or sweat...) against your butt...

    Just use Pachmayr Old English pads, get the leather covered look with all the advantages of modern neoprene, available in black, brown and orange/red.

    Why use walnut - just use a synthetic stock, hydro-dipped in a wood grain pattern. It's got all the advantages of plastic...

    I've thought about getting one for a lever action Marlin SBL type rifle, would suit it. I would be interested to know if there is a leather one that reduces recoil like a limbsaver.

    @tanqueray did you really have to revive this train wreck, and prove to everyone how incompetent I am at creating functional threads? Lets bury this one once and for all. You bring the shovel and I'll bring some duct tape.

    I say, old chap. This just isn’t cricket.

    Honestly, I’m really not sure what that quote was. Not quite arousing, yet falling short of terrifying. Hmmmmm.
