    I'm shooting a Beretta 682 Sporting for trap singles and feel I need to add some weight to this lighter
    gun. CH Research offers the mercury weights in both clamp on as well as a 9 oz. weight that inserts
    in the chamber. I'm wondering if anyone out there has used the chamber weight and what they think
    of it. Would both the clamp on and chamber weight essentially accomplish the same thing. Namely a smoother swing and less recoil. Thanks. Pete.

    I used the chamber weight when I was shooting my XT o/u and liked it a lot. It didn't change the balance or how it moved, but the added mass helped reduce the felt recoil. J.Terre
