Disappointingly, my newest favorite had it’s 5/8” Sporter pad ripped loose and its wood mercilessly chopped.
An Old English pad was added to a finished LOP of 14 7/16. I really dislike the spongy marshmallow type pads.

The gun, a euro B525 20 gauge With 32” non ported barrels,
fits me as if it were fitted and I shot an effortless 50 straight in a Zen like state.

The current pad is almost flat, tapered at the toe and just slightly rounded at the comb.
I would have liked an Ithaca Sunburst pad but the shape just isn’t right
and the whole Ithaca pad on a Browning would ultimately bother me to distraction.

I’ve settled on this Browning Ventilated Hockey Puck.

It’s really growing on me.
Any thoughts or suggestions?

How it feels is more important than how it looks. I’m a fan of Limbsaver and Kick-Eze.

I've put Kick-Eze on several shotguns now and all have performed admirably. However, to be fair, they were all custom fit by a stock person at about $80.00 all in.

What’s wrong with that?

Go out and try to shoot another "50 straight" -- if you get 49 or 50...

DON'T change a thing!

+1 to that.

Don't overthink it -- just SHOOT it.
