Default 03a3 bottom metal with pad fitting

I have a James River Armory 03A4 replica. I recently purchased 03A3 stamped bottom metal with the pad behind the front action screw. Doesnt the stock need to be clearanced for the pad when fitting the bottom metal with the pad? Ive seen stocks with the wood removed for that pad. I just have nonidea on how to do it, how much to remove, etc. Anybody got any ideas. I can provide a pic of what Im talking about if anyone would like to see what Im talking about. Thanks

I never have relieved for the pad, besides I think that would defeat the purpose of the pad.
The pad distributes the force over a larger area. This eliminates the guard digging into the stock which hurts accuracy.

Absolutely not! You must NOT remove stock wood to accommodate the pad. The pad is intended to stabilize the bedding. Removing wood above the pad is literally asking for trouble.

No, unfortunately not. Perhaps someone can oblige.

Padded trigger guards are very late production. Padded trigger guards are not rare. But because they appeared very late in production, they're not very common either.
