Benelli M4 Recoil Pad

Recommended Posts

Are there any available replacement recoil pads for the M4 or are any of the recoil pads for other models compatible with the M4 stock?

 

Thanks!

Hey XTrooper,

 

I found Numrich to be pretty good with parts in stock. Some might be at higher premium but they have the recoil pad and the price doesn't seem too bad. Check them it out here: https://www.gunpartscorp.com/Products/740570B.htm

 

Also, its odd because when I go to Super90 (M4) the actual listing says M1/M3. Maybe give them a quick call/e-mail to confirm. It looks correct though.

Thanks, jsn124. I appreciate the info. What I'm looking for is an alternative, preferably softer replacement recoil pad for the factory one. :)

If you're looking to change out the one on your M4 w/standard stock, I believe the M4 pad is the same as the older M1's. They're both screw-on and looking at mine they're the same dimensions and the screw holes seem to be in the same places.

Top pad in each pic is off an old M1 standard plastic stock. Bottom pad is off a new plastic pistol-grip M4 stock (non-collapsible). I can put the new M4 pad on the old M1 stock and vice-versa. If you're looking to change to something like a limbsaver I don't see why the one for a M1 wouldn't work. (these are take-offs I have laying around. I prefer not to take them off my guns willy-nilly since I believe the plastic stock screw holes have a finite number of screw-ins/screw-outs before the threads blow out)

Thank you, gentlemen.

 

truckcop: Yes, that's exactly what I'm looking to do. I have the standard (non-pistol grip) stock on my M4 and would like to swap out the "hard as a rock" stock pad with something a little more shooter-friendly. That would be awesome if you could confirm, amigo. Gracias!

Well, the reason I have that M1 pad laying around is I replaced it with a limbsaver so it stands to reason that if my old M1 pad will fit on a newer M4 stock, a M1 limbsaver will fit on the M4. At least I think my logic is correct there although my wife would probably tell you that logic and my thought processes are mutually exclusive.

Thanks a bunch for the help, truckcop. I'm going to start looking at the M1 recoil pad options available, including the Limbsaver, and go from there.

 

Thanks again!

So this limbsaver pad linked above will only fit the field stock, not the C-Stock or PG stock? Right? No way to put a limbsaver on a C-Stock?

Yes. Noveske plate. Slightly file holes to match. Get pad that fits.

Great -- I've been wanting to put limbsavers on all three of my stocks and was not aware of the Noveske adapter for the C-Stock and PG Stock. Any recommendation on which limbsaver fits the C-Stock? 10111? Thanks!

Anyone try this yet? Looks like from the pics in the link I posted that the pad sticks out from the sides near the bottom just a tad...not sure if it would be enough to drive me crazy or not!

So, before I order stuff that won't work, I understand that you can install a Limbsaver recoil pad on an M4 pistol grip stock if you install this Noveske adapter plate?

 

Is this the correct recoil pad to use on a pistol grip stock?

Anyone do it? Problems? Issues?

You can use the limbsaver with the Noveske adapter on the NON-COLLAPSIBLE stock.

 

However, if you got the collapsible stock, it will no longer collapse past the longest rod with the Noveske adapter installed. (Ask me how i know....cause I do)

Ok fine. I have the standard PG stock, not the C stock. How does the OEM recoil pad come off?

Oh yet another lesson learned!

 

Two tiny tiny little holes in the buttpad of your stock. A phillips screw about 3/4" deep in each hole. It strips easily, do not use any loctite for reassembly.

 

It does help to put a drop of oil in before removal and before re-insertion to not mess up the rubber. I would not attempt to remove the screws from the buttpad, just unscrew straight from teh stock. You can get a replacement buttpad and screws (about $75 total, ask me how I know...because I do)

 

Also, from what I remember, the Noveske plate tends to not line up perfectly, so you may have to file it down a tad

 

Also, the best limbsaver pad you can get is a close fit, but will still have a couple of small plastic humps that reside on either side of the stock

Excellent! Exactly the kind of info that I was looking for. Thank you!
