    I'm thinking of adding a few ounces of weight under the forend of one of my O/U shotguns. I would want the weight to be in that small cavity between the barrels and attached by adhesive to the webbing between the barrels. These weights would be hidden by the forend wood.

    Does anyone make thin lead bars or lead strips that would fit here? I know I could use many layers of lead tape to accomplish the same thing, but it would take a lot of tape. I thought that someone might make thin bars or strips of lead that would fit here. Anyone have any info on this?

    Thanks,

    Easystreet

    Melted some cero metal in between bbls. Heavy, but melts at a very low temp, doesn't hurt anything else. I think it's primary use is to check dies.
