Love this gun, can't wait for some good weather and a free Sunday to go shoot it. I used two spacers and permanently bonded them to this recoil pad, which is a reproduction of the original Ithaca Sunburst pad. I used that instead of a pachmayr because I needed a flat bottom. Plus it looks good. I added 1/2" of LOP and it feels great. Once I see how my longer recoil pad holds up I may offer it as an option for users.
