    Anyone have suggestions on how I could add some weight to the front end of my BT99? All I can find are clamp on bbl weights that look like they'd mar the finish.

    Graco makes a clamp on barrel weight in 4, 6, and 8 ounce. I've had a 4 ounce on my BT99 for over a year and it has neither marred the finish or moved. Briley makes a barrel weight, but they told me that it wouldn't work reliably on the 99, and might move and mar the finish.

    I milled a channel inside the forend and poured in
    liquid lead. Works great.

    Check out Meadow Industries stick on weights. I have a good friend who has had one on his BT-100 with no issues in two years.

    The stick on weights work well. There is enough room to put some lead tape on the barrel under the forearm also.

    How do you remove the stick on weights and how is the bluing after being on a long time then removed?

    Heat gun/hair dryer would get the glue soft enough to remove weights, then use Goo Gone to remove residue.

    I have often thought about how nice it would be to have a couple of lead weights in long lengths, like bars or rods. You could mount along the rib along the sides.

    They could either be clamped on with glue or couple small bolts.

    I once saw a trap gun that weighed some 12 lbs. Owner had weights along the rib near the receiver, under barrel, in the stock.

    Said it had not kick, so he was happy with it.

    Could make a person really worn out at the end of the day.
