Recoil pad for H&R Rifles?

Hi guys, just put down a reserve on a H&R Ultra Hunter Varmint .223 but was gonna get a .30-30 barrel for it for deer season (Will post pics when it comes in) My question is who makes a recoil pad that will fit the stock. Anyone know?

PS: I am on a budget so if you can find something reasonable please let me know. Thanks, I looked around and was clueless. LOL.

You might check www.limbsaver.com as they have full size templates that you can print out and see if one of their pads will fit your stock.

If you have a simple disk sander (like the kind that fits on a drill), it's easy to grind your own. Pacymayrs grind easy.

Can be done that way, but it's hard to achieve a professional-looking result where the comb and toe angles are correct, and match the stock lines precisely. You really need a pad-grinding jig, and a benchtop disc/belt sander to keep it all true. I do about four or five a week...

Midway has an excellent DIY video on it if you can't find any pre-fits- but check Pachmayr's site before you go to a grind-to-fit, they might make one to fit your rifle.

Tobnpr, you are absolultely correct that a hand grind job isn't going to give you the precise angles that a proper jig will give you.

On the other hand, the poster is wanting to put a recoil pad on an H&R. You could grind the pad with a lemon zester and it wouldn't hurt the value of that firearm.

Read about a guy who bought $2 black flipflops, cut them to shape and superglued it to his rifle. He was perfectly happy with it.
