    Corey, Go to a Golf or Tennis shop and get some lead tape. A little bit on the end of the barrel can go a long way to changing the balance. Short money and does no damage. Good luck, Bob

    Why do you want the weight? recoil? gun control?

    If gun control, stress patience in attacking the target. Don't try to make the gun too heavy to move freely, that's counter-productive and causes more problems than it corrects.

    I have lead tape weight made in Germany that is 1 1/2" wide; a width especially made for barrels. With a very thin layer of removable glue, it easy attaches to the underside of the barrel, and will not hurt/mar the barrels blue.Problemem with golf tape is that it is only 3/4" wide, but if you'rdiligentnt, you can run it side-by-side.

    With either, you can layer multiple layers to achieve more weight.
