Old Mossy 500 Recoil Pad Question

I've got an old New Haven 600AT (Mossberg 500) that needs a new recoil pad. I'm having trouble finding one that doesn't need a lot of modifications to fit. I've found some of the Limbsaver models that are the right size but the screw holes don't line up. I'm thinking about gluing it on since it's not an expensive gun. Does anybody know if there is a pad that will fit this gun or what type of glue I should use?

Thanks,

Wood stock? If holes are far off, just pre-drill new holes...
Try havlin sales for a pad...

Yeah, it's a wood stock. The top hole lines up but the bottom is off only a little. I might be able to fill the old hole and then drill the new one. I'll try that. Don't know why I didn't think of that! Hell, if I screw it up a new stock isn't too much anyway.

Thanks, hogdogs.

Havlin's stocks are usually "new take off" deals and are super low buck!

With all the plugs we give I expect a call any day asking for my address for the "GIFTS"...

I went to Havlin but didn't see a recoil pad. I may get one of their stocks. Thanks for the help guys!

Call havlin and/or email as they may have them... Their site isn't 100% complete and recoil pads may be in the back gathering dust...
