Ladies (if there are any) and gentlemen,
I have the pictured stock butt pad on my Remington 11-87 Special Purpose, circa 1990. It is 1 inch thick. I’m thinking about an aftermarket replacement to reduce felt recoil. I’ve been looking at Limbsaver and Decelerator and the Remington recoil reducer. I don’t want to increase LOP. If possible, I’d rather decrease it. However, less thickness would probably add to felt recoil, plain old physics at play.

Does anyone have any recommendations???

Thanks in advance.

Tim

Remington Super Cell:

Maybe JD has them in stock. (pun intended) 

Rem. P/N 19471 for wood stock, 19472 for synthetic stock.

I agree with entropy. The Super Cell is what You want.
There is one on my H/D 870 and I would not have any 
other pad. It does what the thing is suppose to do.

Oh, ooooh... looks like my 1990/91 11/87 can’t have a Super Cell:
See picture

Maybe JD knows a solution...

That I did not know, never saw that before.
How about a newer stock swap.

No, I would opt for the Limbsaver version that does fit my stock instead. The thing is, the Super Cell may actually fit well enough. I’m not so sure I want to be the tester on that theory. Just thought someone may know for certain. What’s odd, is that Remington doesn’t have one that fits their own shotgun, but Limbsaver does. 🤔

Like it says, it may not be a perfect fit, but probably decent enough. The super cell is the better pad than the Limbsaver; I've had both on Remingtons. The Limbsaver on my son's 870 'melted' and stuff stuck to it after that. I would advise storing a Limbsaver padded gun butt up in the safe.

I'm replacing the composite furniture on one of my 870s with wooden stuff.   (I just like the look)  I got the Remington Super Cell pad for the wooden stock, but in having the stock shortened, my 'smith said he couldn't make the pad fit, so I had to use a smaller size Pachmyr "Decelerator".    It seems to work fine, but I was disappointed in not being able to use what is reportedly the "best" recoil protection. 

( the solution was proposed as "quit shooting so damn many slugs all the time!" Ha!)

Don,
I’ve seen some fairly scientific testing on the various butt pad options, and I’m not convinced there is a proven “best butt pad” out there. I think the “better” ones, Supercell, Limbsaver, Decelerator, et al, are fairly equivalent, and difficult if not impossible to tell the difference between by the typical shooter. I’ll bet if you blind folded someone and had them shoot each one, (with the blindfold off) most could not tell a difference. Now, they will likely beat the standard pad, but not each other, IMHO.

On my Beretta 1301, I’ve changed from the standard stock and butt pad to the Magpul, and also have a Limbsaver for it too. I can’t tell the difference between the Magpul and the Limbsaver, but each of those blows away the standard Beretta stock’s butt pad, but look at the difference in thickness on the picture, Magpul vs Stock:

That's an obvious difference!  The tan one is the standard Beretta stock and pad? 
I'm satisfied with the Decelerator pad on my gun, it's just that I now have a Rem Super Cell butt pad with no gun to use it on.  (for now.)

Affirmative Don, the tan one is the Beretta. I have a thread on it in the “Shotguns for defense” section right here. And I can think of only one solution for a butt pad in search of a shotgun. 🤔 Get a shotgun that fits the butt pad. 😜👍👍👍
