  • Patent number: 5265366
    Abstract: A recoil pad for attachment to a firearm buttstock of the type having a retaining sleeve (14) and an end wall (16) which communicate to form a unitary boot. The sleeve (14) and wall (16) are constructed of similar density foam material, so as to absorb recoil upon the discharge of the firearm. The predetermined exterior dimension of the unitary boot is substantially larger than the dimension of rifle buttstock (12). This increased area allows the pad to disperse recoil impact more effectively. In addition, the retaining sleeve (14) may contain two, or more, sets of corresponding integrated incisions (22,24,26) which define earplug excisions (20).
