Title: Recommend Recoil Pad?
Post by: Gkines7 on May 30, 2016, 03:35:10 PM
Can anyone recommend a good 3rd party recoil pad that perfectly fits the UTS-15?

Thanks!

None that fit perfectly, no.  I wish the crappy solid rubber one was more easily removed, we might have some 3rd party options then.  Most people I know just stick on a medium limbsaver.  It's not perfect and it looks weird but it makes a world of difference on your shoulder.

Here's a link to a tear down of the built-in recoil butt pad, hoping someone can do a custom mold of it with a thicker / softer rubber:

I would do it if I had the equipment available.

Simpler than I'd remembered.  If I had a 3d printer or some workbench space I'd think about working something up.  There has to be a way to make a rigid attachment point and marry that to some more absorptive substance for recoil.

Unfortunately, the UTS-15 has such a small installed user base that it's not a lucrative market for someone to invest the time and money into making one for sale.

Really? My UTS has very little recoil as it is... its actually softer shooting than anything else I have shot. I did a side by side comparisons against a KSG and my UTS had considerably less recoil. I don't see a need in a different butt pad...

Refer to the utas Gen 3 with modifications if you're looking for something completely different than a slip on bulky butt pad

check out the limbsaver airtech "small/medium" (that is the size).  has half of the LOP effect as the other limbsavers and is supposedly an improvement on the "classic" design.  just installed on my uts-15, haven't shot with it yet so don't have before/after report at this time.  fit seems good, and seems significantly less bulky than the other limbsaver options.

Medium Limbsaver slip-on worked great for me. You'll need to use some Shoe Goo to keep it in place, as it will move without it. No worries if you want to take off as it will with some effort without damaging the stock rubber pad.
