Pachmayer Decelerator Pad

Have a lightweight SxS 12 bore that I really like. Trade-off for weight reduction is that it kills from both ends with heavy loads. Do these pads fit w/o any shaving of wood or other modifications? I've heard good things about them and they're not as fugly as slip on recoil pads.
If you have access to a belt or disk sander and you're handy at such things you can do it yourself, if not then it's best left to a pro.
I've tried several types of grinding fixtures and found this one to be much easier to work with.
Best of luck.
It's doubtful that you'll find a pad that is pre-fit so some fitting will be required. The fitting does not remove material from the stock but from the pad itself. You may have to consider cutting the stock for the appropriate length of pull since the pad will add to the length of the stock.
