    Pulled my Parker Hale out of the safe and found the recoil pad deformed and hard as a rock. I do not remember seeing screws holding it on so how to get it off. I'm thinking I should start removing material a little at a time and hunt for screws. Any other ideas?

    There are screws somewhere under whats left of the pad. Cutting away carefully at the pad should reveal them.

    Grizzley1 is correct, there are two screws holding the recoil pad on. Normally you would find two hidden slots in the pad to show you were the screws are. But in your case, grind away because I don't think you will find the screw slots.

    Yep it is held on with 2 screws. As was said there are 2 slots in the pad and if you start spreading it apart you will see them.
    Or you can start poking it with a small screw driver itill you find them.

    I've got an old Long Tom single shot 12 gauge with a pad that looks like that. I have always liked the Parker-Hale rifles with their Weatherby like stocks.

    Yep, cut away. It doesn't appear you're going to hurt the pad......:D

    By the looks of that pad, if you shoot it, your shoulder will tell you where they are. :eek:

    The stock is junk to start with, take a knife put a cut straight down the middle the knife blade will find the screw holes for you.

    The pad looks like an old brownie that fell under the fridge a couple years ago.

    Pretty obvious he meant the pad, not the stock...
