I have misplaced my owner's manual and looked at this one on Beretta's site. The file states: "With a flathead screwdriver pull out retaining clasp of Gel Tek recoil pad.(Fig. 41)"

There is no Figure 41 in the manual. Can anyone tell me how to remove the clasp?

you don't remove it, just slide it out about a quarter inch or so, until it releases from the lugs mounted on the stock.

Thanks for the reply. Where should I insert the screwdriver and in which direction should I slide it?

The recoil pad is held in place by a huge retaining clip- it looks like a bobbie pin. Take a small flatblade screwdriver and from the bottom of the shotgun pad- pry the clip downward.

Yep, that is the way you do it......

My manual does show it, but it says changing the stock pad to the gel tek should be done by a gunsmith...Is it that hard?? The bright green doesn't go well with the gun, but I'd like to try it...
Thanks!

My 686 White Onyx Sporting doesn't have a clip, just 2 screws. In fact about ten minutes ago I swithced it out for a Limbsaver. If any body is interested the #10701 prefit is about a 98% fit, which is better than I expected. I've got Burcitus in my shoulder and am trying to tame the recoil a bit. Take note, that part number is for the Sporting model, not the Field.

If you can turn a screwdriver, I think you can handle it....
