Hello All,

does anyone know if a stg-58 rubber recoil pad will fit a R1 buttstock?

An STG pad doesn't work very well with an R1 butt stock. An Imbel pad is a better alternate - Dan at VOW had some good used Imbel pads.

You can make a STG pad work on a R1,
but you will need to work on it.
You must cut off the two rased humps on the end of the butt and sand flush (like STG).
Then I use a drum sander in a Dremal tool
to open up the lip on the STG pad a little till it fits the R1 stock.
I have done this several times and it works.
