I can't imagine why the #3 Silver pad, so marked, is not made by Silver, but Dudley knows what he is talking about. What do the plugs look like on that pad Brian posted pictures of? There must be a few Griffin and Howe pads floating around, because they used to sell them by the dozen at a reduced price.

For small bore guns the Noshoc pads work great. They are closer screw spacing and the plugs are very small. And the noshoc logo is easily removed with abrasive paper. It looks just like a mini silvers pad when done.

The plugs on that Galazan pad are smaller than the silvers. And they are straight. Not tapered.

I have a couple G&H pads on hand. They have even smaller plugs. And are also straight.

I have used the NO-SHOC pad on small guns. Brian is correct, it is a great pad. For an older gun, I do not grind off the logo.

There are these:

I've bought one, they are made in Italy and hard like a Silver's pad. There are no plugs, you cut a slit like a Pachmayr. They come in different thicknesses.

You can use a hole cutter & make your own plugs. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1748143360

You can also buy the Winchester Repoduction pad & they come with small plugs & grind off the logo. Galazon use to have these in 2-sizes: large & small. They did a close out on the small, but if you call they may still have some in stock. The small size were perfect for the small gauge stocks

The Midway pad information mentions a 1/8" plug. Do you know what 1/8" looks like? I don't know whether I would recommend something like that.

They make 1/8 & 1/4". You can also make one from a piece of thin wall tubing in any size you want.

The very early G&H pads had a delamination problem, the junk pads Brian mentioned do not have the mounting holes symetric with the plug holes, and both of the Slivers pads need a simple drill jig to install the mounting holes using a drill press preferably.

Meant to say concentric instead of symmetric.
