    Recoil Pad Fit

    Has anyone installed a precision/prefit recoil pad on a early high comb Marlin 444. If so how was the fit and what pad did you use. Looked at a Limbsaver # 10806 today and packaging said Marlin 336 and 444.

    I don't know if it would be any help, but most of my Marlins wear a lace on leather butt pad (takes just a minute or two to put it on or take it off) that has about a 1/4" of foam inside & looks good on a lever gun. Tames the 1895 pretty nicely. Found Them on Amazon for $18. Get two & it is free shipping.

    I am interested in this as well. The 10806 is listed as 4.70"L x 1.6"W. I just measured my monte carlo 444 stock, and it measures 4.75"L x 1.645"W.
    I'm not too worried about the length, but I wonder about the pad being too narrow.
    Anyone have actual experience with the Limbsaver 10806?

    You will be very lucky to find a pad precut to fit as nice as you want. It will turn out a lot better getting a grind to fit. If you don't feel up to it take it to a good smith and be happy.
    Have a great day.

    Earlier this year I put a LimbSaver AirTech Precision-Fit Recoil Pad model 10806 on my Marlin 444. It was a near perfect fit.

    I just trace the wood perimeter , then find a shotgun pad a basspro that’s big enough. Then sand to fit.

    I ended up getting a medium Pachmayr F250 grind to fit .85" thick.
    I wanted a brown one with the vented sides. I'll let you know how it works out.

    Mine is a tad big....cause I was chicken to grind it down to the stock, it's close enough, overall I might have gained a 1/2" in the pull, saved the shoulder in the long run though!Marlin .444SS butt pad (pachmayr) 001.jpgMarlin .444 with Nikon scope and weaver quick release rings 001.jpg
