    Default Old Recoil Pad Information


    I just bought a pre 64 Model 70 featherweight that has a recoil pad added. As close as I can tell, the recoil pad says on it:

    Eric Lundren
    Paso Robles, Calif

    The rifle is a 55 model and the pad is still flexible. According to the seller his dad bought the rifle new and had the pad installed soon after ( a year maybe ) the purchase along with having a couple of other things done to it. One thing that was also done was to full length bed the barrel channel on the stock.

    I have never heard of this particular brand of recoil pad. Does anyone know anything about them?

    Back "in the day" it was possible to order pads with your name molded into them. Over the years I've seen a number of old pads with various small shop or individual gunsmith names on them. I imagine like so many things, there was a minimum order required, probably 100 or so.

    Thanks for the answer. That makes sense anyway.

    This old pad looks just like a Pachmayr and is, amazingly,
    still flexible. Most recoil pads that old are as hard as the
    rifle stock.
