PAD FOR 1935 AE 12 GA

Postby J. A. Early » Mon Aug 12, 2019 9:54 pm

In your opinions, what is the most appropriate pad for this gun that is available today in a reproduction pad?

I've got the solid red Noshoc on a L.C. Smith 20 and a SW 20 and am partial to it even though it does not do much in absorbing recoil. I'm just looking to lengthen the gun.

Thanks.

I think the Noshoc is great from the good period look perspective. Hawkins Heart Pad certainly works as well. Jostam Hy-gun works also, but as far as I know they aren't being made anymore, but seem to be pretty easy to find with some looking. The Noshoc and Hawkins Heart replica pads are out there at I believe at Brownells or CSMC. PS. Some folks like the Silvers, but I think the extra large plugs are sorta ugly.

My Sterlingworth from that era has a Hawkins which I like very much...

The problem with the available Hawkins repro heart-shaped openings pad is that it is the huge 15 hearts size and will only barely work on a large-size stock, like my big 2-frame Parker Bros.

Probably best suited to an Ithaca NID Magnum-10!!

I would go with an original Hawkins pad, not a repro.

Though the gun is at least a decade older than the No-Shoc pad, I've had this NOS pad I got from Clarence Bowman at a Vintage Cup on my favorite hunting 20-gauge for a dozen years now.

Still have a couple of mediums --

Need to buy something to put them on. Maybe a 20-gauge Skeet & Upland Game Gun.

Thanks for all of the replies. Does anyone have a NOS Noshoc for sale that will fit a 12? The repros are very hard.

Dave, I was not familiar with the No-Shoc pad. It looks similiar to the original Silvers pad. It looks good on your gun.

The Noshoc is the commercial version of the solid Winchester pad.

Some other Silvers-like pads available over the years were the Goodrich --

and the JOSTAM Air Cushion --

I've seen Fox production cards that specified the Perkins Pad, and years ago down at The Great Southern Weapons Fair at Richmond I looked at an FE-Grade which had a JOSTAM Air Cushion. You could see the JOSTAM logo through the leather facing.

In that era, nearly any of the vintage recoil pads commonly seen would be suitable. It really comes down to a matter of what you prefer.

Dave,

That type of noshoc box is not one that I have seen before. I have some of the yellow ones.
