Mosin and/or SKS Recoil Pad

I now haz an SKS, with a Mosin on the way. Mosin's metal buttpad is not known for being comfy after many rounds, and the short Length of Pull of both rifles makes them a little short for proper cheek weld.

Does anyone have a go-to recoil pad that will extend the LOP a bit while making lighter the beating I'll take? I plan to actually shoot these two old rifles...especially since I have over 1k rounds for each on tap...

Suggestions?

Worrying about LOP on a Mosin that's not a Finn is silly, roll up a set of socks and use that if it hurts too much.

Is this your first Mosin? You know about corrosive surplus ammo, right?

I have a LimbSaver on one of my shotguns. It works well. My only complaint is the rubber it's made out of is somewhat clingy so it can snag on your jacket or shirt and screw you up when trying to shoulder the gun quickly. I doubt they make one for either of those guns but I think if you go on their website you can print out the shapes of them and see if one is close to what you need. I remember doing that when trying to fit one to my 40 year old Beretta AL2.

That said, I have a Mosin Nagant with the steel buttpad and it's not that bad to shoot. I've never put more than 50ish rounds through it at a time though and I shoot a lot of trap and sporting clays so I don't have a pussy-shoulder .

Are the Finns really so much more accurate as to be worth 3-4 times more? I know of one shop that has Finns in stock, but they are $350+ shipped.

Yes, my first. Yes, ammonia to neutralize the corrosive agent. e.g. window cleaner...except all my window cleaner is ammonia free, so I have to go buy some, unless you have a better suggestion?

That could be my problem right there.

Admittedly, I'm used to smaller calibers built for accuracy...even my Benelli shotgun isn't that bad unless I'm throwing some 3" or 3.5" magnums...then it's a concussion stick.

As long as the Finns aren't counterbored or shot to hell, they usually pull 1 MOA. Depends on what you're doing with the rifle, if you're looking to blast bowling pins in the pit, spend $70, if you're putting it to paper at at 100+y, why not spend a little more dough for a competent rifle that you'll enjoy more? Now that being said, there are certain Finns that are no better than regular Izzys but I couldn't tell you the intricacies but these guys could:

Yes, windex or whatever w/ammonia will clear it out, spray with reckless abandon, a little rust can wreck a bolt in a few days. IIRC the only thing added to the ammo to stabilize it is salt, which obviously speeds up rusting to a huge degree.

I got a recoil pad for my Mosin for 12 bucks on Amazon. It works well.

I had a slip on recoil pad from Cabela's that I occasionally use for the Mosin but mostly use a gel shoulder pad for the K98s and Nagant.
