Anybody know of a removable recoil pad for a Para stock?

I'd like to increase the length of pull an inch, inch and a half, and the aluminum butt slides around on my shoulder or the carpeted floor if it's standing like no one's business. Thought I'd kill two birds here and hunt down a recoil pad that could do both. Obviously, this is an FAL, so the 'recoil' part of the equation isn't terribly important.

You might be able to get a Rhodesian-made folding stock and swap the tubes and butt out.  They had a rubber butt shaped like the hiduminium one that was, IIRC, glued to the end of the tubes.  Wouldn't do anything for LOP, though.

And that would certainly not be "non-permanent".

Well, you could always swap the tubes and stock as an assembly back to the original form if desired.  They're held in with a pin.

I wonder if one of the slip on Limbsavers would work?

I found a few slip-on pads on Midway. I'll have to measure the stock and see which one will work. Thanks!

That looks like it will do nicely. Thanks for the lead!
