I have a .44 Winchester 94 lever rifle, and am looking for a nice recoil pad that could go over the buttstock. Ideally something classy such as leather, and a pouch or something for extra cartridges would be a bonus.

Anyone know where to find something like that?

Thanks

Is it a recoil pad you need or a buttstock extension? 44 Mag just can't kick that hard can it?

44 Mag just can't kick that hard can it?

My son has a 94AE in 44mag. It's surprising how hard the little rifle hits you (and I'm not recoil-shy). I'm having a custom lace-on leather pad made for him by a local holster/saddle shop.

Sims Limbsaver works very well, I have one on my tikka 06', and it helps alot.

I vote for Limbsaver as well.
I've got one on my daughter's rifle that she deer hunts with.

My Wife put a slip-on pad, On her's. Seems to do the job.

Another vote for a grind to fit Limb saver.

Limbsaver. Have someone who works with leather make a leather cover for the stock that holds shells like you want. I wouldn't think it would be too spendy.

I have the slip-on limbsaver on my .300 win mag. It is what it says :D

Corollary question:

Is the slip-on version of the Limbsaver pad sufficiently tight-fitting and otherwise satisfactory in the field for hunting? Or do you Limbsaver owners recommend instead the version that replaces whatever "stock" stock pad I have on my long guns? (If I can switch the slip-on back and forth between a couple of guns, assuming good fit each time, that saves me some $$$.)

Even my auto Deerfield has a bit of a bite with a heavy H110 load under a 240G bullet. It's not too bad with factory loads but gets 'tiresome' with hand loads. Most .44 rifles don't need much of a recoil pad but like on my Deerfield, it couldn't hurt. Another option is a strap on sholder pad.

Recoil management for rifles is the same for shotguns.

Gun Fit.
Correct Basic Fundamentals [stance, body positioning, ...etc...etc...etc...]

Only one recoil pad - Pachmayr

I prefer smooth, and like the leather. I shoot shotguns from low gun...well using a Model 94 in 30-30 I also shoot from "low gun" as I do not walk around or maintain gun on shoulder the whole time afield either...

FWIW - my personal Model 94 in 30-30 I do not use a recoil pad ...it fits as is.

Little things like LOP, drop, pitch, ...even contour heel and toe as we do shotguns applies to rifles.

Gun gotta fit shooter...

I have a Winchester Model 94 AE Trapper model in .44 cal, and boy does she kick. I installed a limb saver slip on recoil pad, and with .44 specials, she kicks like a .22.
I just recently bought the screw on "precision fit" limb saver 10003, and the holes do not match on my wood stock. So I guess I will look into the grind-to-fit. And yes, you can move the slip-on from rifle to rifle. I checked my rifles out of curiosity, and the slip on fits 4 of my other rifles.
