Have a beautiful Whitworth in 375 and a Ruger 77 tang safety in 458. Both really need new pads and was wondering if this pad would look classy on these rigs while providing needed recoil reduction:

Open to suggestions so tell me what you think. Thank you

Not only would it look right...it is your ONLY logical choice. There are no other colors but English Red...

While your talking to Karnis may I suggest asking him about the very nice "Red Pads" he put on a couple Mausers for me.

They are very British looking, sorry I cant remember the name.

Sounds like that would be perfect for the Whitworth. May go that route and then decelerator on the 458. Thanks guys!
