    I shoot a 90t HPAR and love it, but some of the right hand targets are beating me in caps. I personally do not think the guns feels heavy, and wonder if adding weight to the stock will make the barrel feel more nimble?

    Yes, adding weight always makes things more nimble. Featherweight guns like the 90-T in particular could use a few extra pounds.

    GW22....that has to be sarcasm. "featherweight 90T"?? LOL Yeah add a couple of pounds, that should really make it nimble.

    I shot my very first round of bunker targets when my P MX-3 S weighed close to 13 pounds. I only managed to break 19 but the better bunker shooters weren't breaking that many more!! 22 was high out of the 10 or so rounds I watched?

    One fellow asked me if he could shoulder my gun, sure, as he grabbed it outa the rack, he was hardly able to lift it! That guy sure was surprised by the weight and how I shot it!

    Yeah, I add lots of weight to reduce felt recoil in my guns.

    Possibly however a shorter stock may aid movement as well as a change in foot position.
