    I bought a heavy 34" over and under barrel awhile a go and its too heavy. It's already overbored by Briley (I think). I think if I could lighted it a bit, it could work. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks Bruce

    Not sure what you expected but you can add weight to the stock to balance the gun. Why did you desire 34 inch ou barrels? Just wondering. I would think pretty hard before altering the gun for balance though it will probably be a negative as to value if it doesn't work out for you. Post-2

    Bruce, if it's a Perazzi barrel, Giacomo can remove the center ribs, add two braces/barrel spacers and a new short rib up front. They also polish and reblue. Cost is between $325 and $400 depending. What you risk is barrel alignment. PBB was on of the first to have them do that, and the POIs of the two barrels was markedly different. Dan says they will reregulate if that happens.

    Post 2, I already have and shoot 34" o/u and wanted this barrel because it is over bored to the equivalent of the old Stan Baker "big bore" barrels. It was represented as being heavy, but they are so much heaver than the mx2000 barrels that I have and use. Thanks zzt, I'll call Giacomo and see if he'll work on them. Bruce

    Bruce, Simmons removed the side ribs on a pgun o/u and added a lujtic type rib and the old gun works well for me. Sarge it is not a whole lot different than a lot of o/u's such as k80 etc. jim w

    Don't do it you're trying to accomplish the impossible. For about $ 15000 you could make a set of titanium barrels
