    Based on the comments in this thread I bought a Limbsaver, and adapter for my 590a1 Magpul. For those that have converted what size screw did you use to attach the pad to the adapter? Contacted Limbsaver a few days ago and still haven’t heard from them.

    If I recall correctly, I just removed the pad that came on the adapter, and used the same screws to install the Limbsaver pad.

    I just picked up my Beretta 1301 Tact. It had 2 sets of recoil pad screws. I'm sure those will work too.

    Nope, had to go out and buy 6 x 1” #2 phillips wood screw. Actually, the only size they had were drywall screws. No problem using those.

    Sorry, for the late response; I just saw this post.

    For my limbsaver pad (I can't speak to anyone else's experience), there were no bolts provided.

    I was installing a Remington 870 limbsaver recoil pad into the Magpul SGA stock, so my part #'s are likely a bit different from yours. I basically took the SGA stock to Home Depot and used trial-and-error to find bolts (not screws) that would fit into the stock's bolt holes. I then used a drill to enlarge the bolt hole openings in the limbsaver pad (they were too small as they came from limbsaver) and used the Home Depot bolts to secure the pad to the SGA stock.

    I think I wrote about this issue in one of my posts (either on the Recoil pad thread or the SGA stock thread). I wasn't happy that limbsaver failed to provide the appropriate bolts, but it was an easy enough fix once I figured out the correct size.

    No problem Fred245. Searched the internet and found the correct screw size from an 870 schematic. Went to Lowe's and bought the#2 Philips, 6 x 1". Was a bit concerned as it looked way to short. But it sits way down in the pad and the length was perfect. I did contact Limbsaver asking about the screw size and never heard back from them.

    Limbsaver makes a decent product, but their customer service is lacking.

    Previously I bought a limbsaver pad for Mossberg's synthetic speed-feed stock...only found out after the purchase that the stock was not set up the same way as Mossberg's regular stock and would not accept limbsaver pads. An email to limbsaver got me responses of "it should fit" to "try other our other pads." Needless to say, I was not happy.

    Not providing bolts for their recoil pad is a bit stupid and lazy on their part. But the pad works well, so I can't complain too much.

    Chopped the stock to 11.5 and reinstalled the Speedfeed pad and all is good.

    How does it change the "Felt" recoil impulse?

    Yes. Obviously you've never been to Shelton, WA. The people there have a little different attitude about people figuring things out for themselves. In fairness, there are a lot of ways to supply the wrong small parts...
