Default How do I put a sims recoil pad on a new Browning A-Bolt 2?

Well, thats what I' m wondering because there are no screws that I can see and I don' t want to mess with anythin until I find out how to do it.

I put a Decelerator pad on an A-Bolt II and had to cut away most of the pad with a knife to get to the screws.

Well, if it' s anything like the recoil pad on my BPS, then there are screw holes in the pad, but they are just tiny slits in the pad that close up so well that they are hard to see. I had the same question when I went to install a mercury recoil supressor in my buttstock. I ended up taking the gun to my gunsmith and he showed me how to find the screws. They are positioned about 1" in from the toe and heel of the stock on the centerline. Poke around with a philips screwdriver until you find the cuts.

I have a Browning A-Bolt in 270WSM there are two slits in the pad you just have to pry them a bit. I went to the range yesterday for the first time with this gun and with the 150 grain bullet it did not seem much worse than my 270Win. But I also plan on getting a Simms pad also.

I agree that the recoil from one shot isn' t bad but an hour of shooting hurts!!

THanks for the tips.

Like others have said there are two slits in the pad. Just try to spread out the pad and you should be able to see them.

One note to save you some headache. Do not unscrew one screw at a time all the way out. You may break the plate under the pad. Alternate the screws taking no more than two turns per screw at a time. Also put some paste wax (car wax) on the screw driver and on the pad around the slits. This will save you from marring up the pad with a dry driver. This also goes for installing the new pad.

Make sure that you bought a pre fit pad and not one that has to be ground down and made to fit.

Put a sims on my 270wsm and it really helps,and it fit nicely too.Also filled the stock with foam and it takes out the hollow sound.
