Which pad was correct for the Flues model?

The Silvers, Jostam, and Hawkins pads were available to shooters in the 1920's. The popular Ithaca Sunburst pad was not introduced until 1932, several years after the Flues was replaced by the NID. I don't have any old Ithaca catalogs to know if they offered pads as a factory option on the Flues doubles.


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.

Not the Ithaca Sunburst. It didn't come along until the NID era. Couldn't find anything in Walt Snyder's book. It'd probably require some digging by someone with a collection of Ithaca catalogs. And it might well depend on when your specific Flues was made.

Any pad before 1923 e.g. Hawkins 'heart' pad, many of the Jostam pad, No Shock, Silvers to suggest a few.

The most common pad at that time would be the now extremely hard to find Jostam Anti-Flinch.

As popular as the Anti-Flinch was from WW-I to WW-II it is really had to fathom that no one is reproducing it.

Anyone know if Ithaca offered a pad as an option? My Flues has the original butt plate and I won’t cut the stock, but I need more than 14” LOP. A slip on is NOT an option.
