rubber butt pad

Recommended Posts

I have a remmington 105cti shotgun.

The rubber butt pad is 'perishing' it has gone really sticky.

I dont believe it has been in contact with any liquid(oil etc)

Why is it doing this?

Some pads go hard others go soft and or sticky .Depends on the type of stuff it's made of .Try wiping it off with lighter fuel then dusting with French chalk .

A side effect of modern plastics I think there was another thread on here before of the same nature. I have not had this on guns but on a goood quality guitar stand where there was metal and plastic, the plasitc started going all sticky after a few years I covered it up with Gorilla tape did not look great but saved getting stuck to it. Some fishing hook boxes do the same, they start to break-down after so long.

I think it's something in the local atmosphere. I have seen quality cameras go the same. Not much you can do I am afraid.

It's when it smells like vomit when breaking down it has to go. 

Replace the pad and enjoy your gun.

have you used wd 40 at any time the acetone reacts badly  ,   or can you wrap it in electrical insulating tape  after the event the cheapest fix        I do this with all recoil pads as it stops then sticking to my clothing as I slide my guns into my shoulder  (not pre mount) 

or replace the pad  for a quality pad
