    My Benelli Vinci kickpad has completely fallen apart. It looks as if acid has eaten it. Anyone else experience anything like this?

    New browning A5s are doing it as well. Browning sent me a "up graded" one free of charge- no questions asked. Don't know what caused it.

    Mine was a little lose. You can pull it out by just wiggling & tugging. But the main pad was just chemically eaten to pieces. Looked rotten.

    If these kickpads are made of molded urethane materials it sounds like the resin and catalyst were off ratio during the manufacturing process. If they are not urethanes disregard.
