FalconStrike is manufactured in 15 different sizes and covers more than 90% of all the late model guns out there.
Yes, FalconStrike fits on Mil-Spec or Commercial buffer tube platforms. Specify when ordering.
The FalconStrike models were carefully developed with aircraft grade precision to match the new guns on the market. Some older guns were modified in time or were manufactured to be pretty, not exact in size. Some minor variations can be expected on older guns.
No. You must not grind the FalconStrike rubber. The bladder is a very specific thickness and must not be altered. You can alter the mounting plate by 1/16” to blend the plate to the stock. Some gunsmiths put a small radius on the edge to blend the plate to the stock.
We take great pride in making FalconStrike Recoil Pads perfect. If you have any problems, return it to us and we’ll send you a replacement. If you wear one out, we want to talk to you, because in our product testing, we ran 52800 shots on one and quit trying to wear it out. That is a box of shells every day for 7 years and 2 months…
Is the Hydraulic oil toxic? What if I do something stupid and the fluid comes out, will I sprout another arm on my forehead?
No. The fluid in the FalconStrike is not toxic. In fact, the fluid is 100% food grade and poses zero health or environmental risks.
The single best way to ensure a perfect FalconStrike fit is to measure the stock, top-to-bottom, left-to-right, and use the size cross reference chart to pick the closest FalconStrike model. Then, use the templates to verify the size and profile match.
Look up your gun model from the list. 2. Download the closest templates to verify the size shape of each model (http://www.falconstrike.ca/sport/products/ ). 3. Look up the sizing chart which shows the length and width of each model.
If you can change a doorknob, yes, you can install the FalconStrike. You’ll need basic tools and the skill to run them.
On wood stocks, you can plug the old holes with a hard wood peg and wood glue, then re-drill a 5/32” hole using the FalconStrike cam plate as a drill guide. See these installation instructions before starting: http://falconstrike.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Installation-Guide.pdf If you’re handy with machine shop tools, you can make holes in the cam plate as you see fit, as long as you don’t wreck the cams, the mounting hole or the integrity of the plate.
Most wood stocks use the bigger size #10 screws. Some composite stocks use the smaller #8 screws. We send both sizes so you will waste no time installing the FalconStrike. Sorry, we can’t send all the weird ones, but if you are stuck, we would love to help you get back to shooting as soon a possible, so send us a message.
On the size chart, pick a size that you want, check that the profile of the template pleases you, click BUY NOW, and you’re in business!
I have a Benelli Super Black Eagle composite stock and there aren’t any screws holding the pad on. How does that work?
The Binelli Super Black Eagle/ Super nova comes with a model specific adapter that slips inside the stock to add screw holes. Be sure to specify when ordering.
We are always looking to expand our FalconStrike size offering. If you don’t see anything that fits, drop us a message along with the details. Our engineering department is busy working on other sizes, and we might already have something on the go.
