I like butt heavy gun and I find it to be slightly barrel hevay with tubes. I knew the normal type mercury recoil reducers wouldn`t work but didn`t know a 3/4 inch was made. Love to try a dead mule but I don`t want to have to modify the stock.Snowbound said:I added a ton of lead to my CG but balanced it with a barrel weight[Briely] but that was a much lighter gun then my 32" K 80.
Adding an adjustable/expendable butt plate to get the LOP I need really screwed up the balance [butt heavy]. Hopefully I can come up with a different idea or I'm going to have to put a bit of lead tape on the barrel to re-balance.
So.....I'm curious, why do you want more weight?
I have a 9 oz. C&H reducer in the stock of my K-80 it is the 3/4". As far as the quote above. It made a big difference in recoil. I set up a second, weighted barrel for 12ga. and doubles. I tried it without a reducer and I knew I would not be able to shoot it commfortably, due to the recoil I was getting. Installed the reducer in the stock bolt hole, which is off-center and it made all the differerence in the world. It also made my 20ga. feel like 28ga.The draw bolt hole is also often off center and if you do believe in the effect of a mercury reducer I have to wonder how effective it can be when it doesn't go straight back against your shoulder.
