    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?

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    Practice/training with a correctly fitted gun, using Correct basic fundamentals with seasoned persons instructing.

    Only one recoil pad - Pachmayr

    http://www.lymanproducts.com/pachmayr/index.htm

    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.
