Kick-eez used to offer a darker red color that looked very good on an old gun. If you can find one, it would be a good compromise. I think I may have one or two here. They do make a bright red as well. But it can be a little loud.

If you want truly traditional the best options for comfort would be a heart vent Hawkins or a jostom anti-flinch or hy-gun. These are all ventilated and are period correct depending on your guns year of manufacture.

Solid pads like silvers or noshocs are safe options for a period pad. But they offer the least comfort. Original noshocs are softer than reproductions.

Ultimately, anything will be better than that whiteline. Every one of those should be put right in the garbage.

Iím a big fan of heart vent Hawkins pads, I like the color and the design. The Hawkins rifle pad with the straight slots, not so much. Hawkins also made a smaller/slimmer heart vent pad which I think look great on a 28 or 410 if extra LOP is needed.


PS. Nice set of arms there Phil and a perfect place for a photo
