Does anyone know how to get the stock butt pad off of a Browning A-Bolt wooden stock ?

I do not see any screws on the back side to take it off ?
I was wanting to replace it with a different (softer) pad........any suggestions on a pad to put on it,and where to find said pad ? Big Smile

if its anything like the stocks on my abolt's ( composite stocks) they cover the screw holes, so you have to poke around with a screw driver until you find the hollow spots one high and one low. i put a limbsaver on one of my abolts a few years ago and it worked very well.

Once you find the holes don't forget to lube the shaft on the screwdriver or you’re likely to tear the pad when you take out the screws.

Petroleum jelly seems to work well.

Never thought of that petroleum jelly....I think when I installed my Limbsaver I used Armour All.
