I added a Mercury recoil reducer in the stock [ Beretta 686 sp1 sporting 30"]
this is fairly heavy at around 10 oz

*wondering if there are some SS extended chokes that are heavier than others ?

I do have a graco clamp-on weight system but want to try Chokes first

Trulock makes SS chokes

Don't think it'll be enough to move the balance point where you want it, but maybe just a smidge.

Comp N Choke are fairly long and s.s. as well. You could also try some brass weights under the forearm. One of the members here makes them; I cannot recall his name (???Smingler???)

I just added a 5 ounce lead weight inletted into the forend on my BT-99 to compensate for the weight of a Precision Fit butt stock. The lead weight moved the balance point about 3/4" on the 9 pound 9 ounce gun.

I have a lead melting pot & plenty of lead - doesn't look like there is much room inside the forend
looks like it hugs barrel all the way ... It's a new gun hate to slop it up

You have to remove material from the forearm to make room for the lead.

I added a 6 oz. Briley barrel weight. I put it about four inches in front of the forearm. When I first put it on, however, it kept moving. (I was afraid to over tighten it.) A local gunsmith put some kind of rubber on the weight to keep it in place.

You can also buy Graco barrel weights, but IMHO the Briley's look better.

I guess I'll try the Graco clamp on since I have them for now
the flat inserts between barrels look good ... will check 'em out

extended chokes can only do so much weight wise

Went to use the graco weight kit , it will work for now. Lots of ways to shift and change weight

Want to add some black electrical tape on barrel to protect it and make more secure fit any issues with this as barrel gets hot ??

Maybe a thin piece of rubber/polymer might work better

Yes, I used some plastic tubing with my weight. Slit it so it would wrap around the bbl. Works fine and keeps the clamp from rubbing the bbl.

If you're using this gun for Sporting Clays, I'd suggest using a lighter weight in the butt...Graco makes them in different weights. As for chokes...I have a 32" gun and a 29.5" gun...same model/make. So, I had Mullers in the 32" gun and loved the balance, but in the 29.5" gun it was too light forward with the Mullers. So, I acquired some custom made Trulocks @ 3.5" oal and weigh 3.1 oz/pr versus 1.31 oz for the Mullers (Also, the Trulocks are the BEST patterning chokes I've ever tested at 40 yards...but that's another story). I also had a set of custom 3.75" non-ported Pure Gold chokes made to specific choke dimensions (0.010", 0.017", etc.). They weigh 3.84 oz/pair and work well on the shorter barrel gun. In summary, I'd start the process over. Why add weight to the butt? For recoil reduction? If that's the goal, I'd approach it differently and get an ISIS installed, which I have on my 29.5" gun and love it. If for balance only, you've really over done it imho. 10 oz is a LOT!

These stick-on weights from Meadow Industries are the best, IMO, for adding weight to the barrel end of a shotgun. You can locate them anywhere along the barrel that is not covered by wood. And they look good too. You can use more than one if you want.

They stick on with double sided tape and they will NOT come loose from shooting or heat or whatever, but they can be removed if/when needed by using fishing string or dental floss. They do NOT mar the finish of your gun.

These are the best and I see no reason to even consider other types unless you want something that you plan on moving or changing on a daily/weekly basis. If you need more tape, use the 3M Super Strength Molding Tape available at auto parts stores. It's the best also.
