Direct replacement screw on Limbsaver recoil pad for NEF/H&R single shot shotguns?

    I have a H&R 12ga. Single shot shotgun and want to find a Limbsaver recoil pad that will directly screw into the wood stock. Searching the internet, I've found two suggestions that may or may not work.

    First is Limbsaver # 10003. Someone said this one would work if your shotgun came with a recoil pad from the factory. If it didn't you'd have to cut 1" off the stock for it to work. I don't recall any single shots coming with a recoil pad from the factory, but I could be wrong.

    The second is Limbsaver # 10702. This seem to be for a Beretta shotgun and was said to fit right on the end of the wood stock.

    I really don't want to get a slip-on since I don't like the way they look, so I'm hoping some Limbsaver out there mates up to the stock as well as the screw holes. Considering these things are cheap and everywhere, I'm surprised Limbsavers hasn't made a direct replacement for them yet. Any and all suggestions are welcome. I've cut the barrel to 18.5", put on a new bead, refinished the stock and forend so I'm hoping to put on a Limbsaver pad as the final touch.

    If it doesn't have a recoil pad on it already, a direct replacement won't work.

    Most pads are an inch or more thick, and the stock will be and inch or more too long if you don't cut off the thickness of the new pad before installing it.

    Well I have long arms and the stock with plastic plate is a tad short so the length would be an improvement for me. Do you know if the model I suggested that needs the stock cut would actually work? I'd do it as long as it looked clean and would mate up correctly.

    Go to Limbsaver's website and download and print the templates out, then overlay your current pad on the templates ad see which one most closely fits. I am willing to bet there isn't one with a perfect fit.

    I ground a Pachmayr to fit my Handi-Rifle:

    I just put a slip over one on mine. The extra length isn't a problem for me. It might not be the prettiest solution but it works.
