    Recoil pad for special application

    This is a unique issue that I've never had to deal with before so I'm turning to you folks for help.

    I need to find a stock/recoil pad solution to eliminate as much recoil force as possible from being transmitted to the shooter's shoulder. I cannot use a muzzle device to achieve this objective.

    The rifle is a Bravo Company AR with a Magpul collapsible stock and pad. Swapping out the stock and pad is not a problem if that is the solution.

    Limbsaver makes a pad for certain Magpul stocks.

    Haven't tried the M4 pads, but I have used their slip on pad on an 8mm Mauser and their fitted pad on a pump 12ga and the difference was night and day.

    Is adding weight an option?

    Disciple, thanks for the Limbsaver links. I'll check them out tonight.

    jsbhike, thanks for your personal experience observation. Adding weight is an option but I'm not sure where to add weight to this little carbine. Are your referring to the Kyntec buffer that drops into the buffer tube? I hadn't thought of those. Your post made me go on the Brownells website to see what they had. That's a definite possibility.

    Perhaps a Limbsaver and a buffer combined would do the trick.

    Very timely. I just got a Cortisone injection for newly diagnosed bursitis shoulder impingement in my right shoulder. Thank you for the links.

    I was thinking of heavier components where possible. Quadrail instead of mlok, beefier optics mount, things like that.

    There is also this as a concept since I doubt anything commercial is available for a carbine.

    Increasing the total gun weight is the most effective way to reduce felt recoil without using a brake.

    You can temporarily add mass with adhesive weights designed for balancing tires:

    Another vote for the limbsaver recoil pad as well.

    Thick but pads won't do much on a rifle that doesn't have much recoil to start with. Weight will work but before you do anything try one of the shooting vest the clay shooters wear. Mine had a gel pad between the cloth layers in the shoulder pocket. These are good and not expensive. https://www.browning.com/products/ou...ing_vests.html

    You can try switching to an A5 system or even rifle, if itís not too long. Depending on the buffer and spring you have in there now changing to heavier ones could even tame recoil somewhat.
