    I have a Franchi Affinity 20 ga with a recoil pad that is starting to deteriorate. The top and bottom of the pad are just wearing away. Still useable, but it is pretty unsightly. Have checked with after market suppliers for replacement pads. Nothing available. After many attempts was able to get a hold of Franchi. Was told they no longer supply the pad. Even new stocks don't come with a pad. Anyone have any ideas what I can do?

    Thanks. Have tried Midwest, Brownells, and Numrich to no avail. It's an odd shaped pad. Fits inside the stock, there's no flat surface to mount to.

    Ahh. Saw some pics of those in my searching.
    Sorry I was of no help.

    Asked Franchi about buying a new stock. "Yeah, they are available but they don't come with the recoil pad." Thanks for the support on a 5 year old gun. I have 2 others in 12 ga, no issues yet but I don't shoot them much.

    Sucks they don't support the product.

    When I look at new Affinitys online, it looks to me like they have the recoil pad (without the flat mounting surface)? Looks like the second link Native had put in his reply. Is it that they have redesigned it again? Something doesn't sound right.

    Why not just get a Limbsaver?

    The Franchi pad is specific to that gun. No flat mounting surface. The pad fits inside the stock.
