    Are Kolar

    Are Kolar TS Trap guns heavier than say a Comparable K80 or other like guns? Ron

    Heavy is a subjective term. I added weight to my Kolar combo to tip the scales at an even 11 lbs 2oz. NO RECOIL whatsoever. Kolar TS will average about 9+ lbs depending on what type wood it's fitted with. But don't let a little weight scare you off.

    Kolar shooter since 2004.

    Don't know about the T/S, but I have a max TA standard rib that I feel is quite lively in the unsingle configuration. I shoot fairly quick and follow through is effortless! Don't be turned off by the opinions of others. Get one in your hands and shoot it. They aren't the super heavy fence post 2x4 guns that people make them out to be. Hell if your in my neck of the woods , you can shoot mine!

    The older .740 barrels have the reputation of being too heavy. The newer semi-light .750 barrels are several ounces lighter, but what makes a Kolar stand out is they are balanced so perfectly.

    My son's gun with the 30" O/U balances on your finger if you hold it right under the hinge pin. Swings smooth as anything on the market. Virtually NO RECOIL when shooting a Kolar.

    Customer service, is second to none!

    I owned a 740 combo years ago and it was and seemed heavy. Ended up getting rid of it. Recently bought a 750 combo and although it weighs over 10 pounds it does not seem heavy at all and trust me I am not in as good of shape now as I was ten years ago.
    I have been shooting autos because of shoulder problems and current Kolar shoots very soft. It is a keeper and scores with it reflect same. jim w.

    I have owned both the .740 and .750 Kolar combos and have added weight to both of them. Its all in what feels balanced to the shooter.

    My new Skeet Max 2 barrel set weighs 9.27 pounds - the same for all four gauges. Balances perfectly on the hinge pin.

    Yes they have some mass. But not so much that they feel heavy, appropriate for a trap gun.

    I almost bought a Kolar combo a few years ago, it did feel heavy to me compared to the Perazzi MX-2000 I was shooting and they both weighed the same ... Had to be the weight distribution ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    I had a .750 TS and felt it was heavy for me and a little slow
    to move but I'm 75. I also have a Ljutic Mono and it is lighter
    and quicker to the target. The Kolar is a good gun with fine service.
    I bought a Alfermann at the Missouri State Shoot this year and am
    shooting better with it than any gun I have ever owned.

    Thanks to everyone's comments...I really appreciate the feedback. It will help me in making my decision. I wasn't going to consider the Kolar but now I will give them serious consideration. Ron
