View Full Version : Remington R3 Recoil pad really work?

I have the standard solid rubber recoil pad on my 870 express and was wondering if the R3 recoil pad was really that much better. Is it worth the $30 and the claimed reduction in recoil?

it's the same as the sims pad, which are highly regarded.

I sure think it is. It's by far, the best recoil pad I've ever used. Makes my 12ga feel like a 20ga. Seriously.

I've heard some people really dis these (and the Kick-ez as well) but I've never heard any specific complaints. Perhaps, because they're so squishy, they deform quicker than normal? I keep my 870 stored muzzle-down through, so I'm not too worried about that possibility.

Yes.. it came on my Remington 870 Tactical. The Recoil is nil.

My Rem 7600 Police in 308 has one and it takes a bunch of fight out of that little rifle.
