WHY USE TEMPLATES? Many manufacturers modify their stock dimensions yearly, making it difficult for us to keep one specific model available for one specific manufacturer. In response, we have provided these templates to help you match your gun stock butt. If you have a synthetic stock and a Precision-Fit recoil pad is not possible, you can utilize our Slip-On pad which delivers the same felt recoil reduction as the Precision-Fit pad. (Removal of existing pad is recommended, but not required.) You may also utilize our Grind-to-Fit recoil pad, but this may require a visit to your local gunsmith.
