Have a 32 year old tang safety Ruger 77 with the original red rubber recoil pad. Not dry or cracked, just stiffened up quite a bit. Anyone have any suggestions for softening that have worked for you without degrading or discoloring pad?
I can tell you what we do to soften up race kart tire that have hardened. get a quart of diesel fuel. Get one bottle of transmission conditioner. The brand TrannyHoney is what I use. Liberally apply it over and over.
