    As an owner of two MN 44s, no recoil pad is needed, and on skinny shoulders.
    How do owners find the JC's recoil?

    The #5 was more recoil than any of the Lee's. I'm 6'1"/240 and my #5 moves me pretty good. My shoulder starts talking after about 20 rounds. You can use one of the slip on recoil pads. That should take some of the bite out of it.

    I just replaced the entire butt stock of my No 5 with one from a No4. I the narrow hard rubber "recoil pad" actually makes the recoil worse.

    I have both, and the M38/44s are worse. I can shoot my No.5 all day.

    Put a medium slip on recoil pad. That will help a whole lot.

    The only time recoil from bg 30 cal's hurts me, including the carbines, is from the bench. If shooting from the bench get a slip on. The recoil of both are virtually the same IMO, YMMV.
