Recoil pad suggestions, Browning A-5

I just picked up an A-5 that previously had the buttplate removed and replaced with a pad. The pad is in really poor condition, so I'm going to replace it. Does anyone have a suggestion on a good pad that's prefitted for this shotgun? I'd like to try a Limb Saver, but I'd rather not go through the hassle of having it ground.

    TRY THE LIMBSAVER SLIP ON. WORKS VERY WELL.

    I WOULD RATHER BE DUCK HUNTING.

    It's got an old orange Western Field pad on it right now that is falling apart.

    if looks arent important, a quck fix is a packmyer slip on. it comes in 2 sizes, med or lrg. the best fix is to have a new pad put on and have it done right. it will last another 50 years and help the value of the gun.
