    Zero felt recoil with Limbsaver recoil pad on my AR10

    This may sound like a commercial, but it's not. Today, I took my Barrett Rec10 AR10 to the range for the first time since I installed the Limbsaver recoil pad on the Magpul stock the rifle comes equipped with. I have never fired anything above a 5.56 rifle where I did not experience some felt recoil, or some soreness after time at the range. However, after firing 40+ rounds with this recoil pad installed on the rifle, I experienced no recoil and no soreness after returning home. I am 100% impressed.

    Thanks again to OldChap for making me aware this exists!

    I can't say my Limbsaver produced "no" felt recoil, but it sure stopped that carbine butt from digging into my shoulder.

    I've tried adding other Limbsaver pads to my bolt guns before and nothing worked as good as this one does. Of course, with the piece of hard rubber that Magpul provides with the stock it might as well be a board. Why they don't just cut a deal with Limbsaver and provide these recoil pads as a stock item is beyond me. But then, many things are beyond me....

    I run these on all my magpul stocks and on everything even 12 gauges they mitigate recoil very well.

    Hmm...

    Do they make one that fits a PSG-1 stock?

    Because while I love shooting my HK91, I gotta say...I feel it after only a few rounds.

    Check their website. They make models that will fit almost anything. IIRC they make some "universal" models that can be adapted to any stock. I would bet the PSG-1 is not terribly different, dimensionally, from a Rem 700 or Savage. Of course their slip on models fit anything.
