The LimbSaver recoil pad reduces perceived recoil by up to 70 percent, boasts LimbSaver. The company notes that the reduced recoil can improve grouping and reduce muzzle jump. The reduction in recoil allows users to shoot for longer without bruising or discomfort. LimbSaver recoil pads are weather resistant, are easy to install and have a nonslip surface.
LimbSaver offer two basic types of recoil pad: the classic pad and the improved AirTech design, according to LimbSaver. The pads are available in slip-on and precision-fit styles, plus a tailored pad for Mag-Pul stocks, a snap-on pad for the AR-15 and a complete replacement stock for AR-15 or M4 rifles. A grind-to-fit version allows gunsmiths to shape the pad with a belt grinder to perfectly match the stock butt. Several sizes of the precision-fit style are available to fit a wide range of rifle and shotgun stocks.
