1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Custom Handmade Brass Weights for Most Over/Under Shotguns
    (Including Some Over-Single and Under-Single Shotgun barrels)

    These fit between your barrels, and are secured via #4-40 screws (most common), #2-56 screws, or RTV silicone. These are custom made to your specs for your barrels.

    So far I've made these to fit Krieghoff K80, Kolar, Beretta, Browning, Perazzi (Over/Under and Unsingle) and Blaser.

    I had been searching for something for the longest time to add some weight to my barrels. I didn't want anything clamped onto the barrels so as to ruin the lines of the gun. After searching about 3 years, I ended up making some of my own out of brass. They fit neatly under the forend between the barrels, and are held together by draw screws (most common) or silicone. I can also manufacture weights for the barrels in front of the forend if you wanted to match weight a barrel to one with subgauge tubes, or just add more weight overall.

    My weights are also now available with steel inserts (#4-40 thread screws only) which facilitate repeated installation and removal for those who want to use the weights on their guns when shooting 12ga to replicate the weight/balance of the gun with tubes, then remove the weights when they shoot with the tubes installed.

    These are primarily intended for split barrel non-side rib guns (Kolar, Krieghoff, Rem 3200, Blaser, some Berettas, some Perazzis), but can also be fit to guns with ventilated side ribs with draw screws (such as the Browning XT) or other solid or ventilated side ribs by using RTV silicone, using the same method that add-on ribs are held on by (no drilling into your side ribs is necessary, which is how Briley used to install side weights on guns w/ mid-ribs).

    The weights I made for my Kolar under the forend were 9.75 inches long and weigh 4.25 oz total (so .44 oz/inch for both sides if you wanted to figure out how much yours would weigh).

    In order to be able to use the draw-screw type of weights (without steel inserts), you need to be able to fit a #4-40 (.108) or #2-56 (.082) screw between your barrels for these weights to work, as that is the size of screws I use, otherwise they will have to be installed with silicone. Clearance for a #4-40 screw can be checked with 2 stacked pennies. Weights with steel inserts are only available for #4-40 screws

    Price for weights without steel inserts will be $50/set shipped, up to 10" in length. Price for weights with steel inserts will be $60/set shipped. Price includes First Class Shipping and Delivery Confirmation. Longer weights will be priced on a per job basis.

    Kolar sells similar side weights made of steel, and Briley used to also make steel side weights but no longer does. I don't know about the Briley ones, but the Kolar ones weigh EXACTLY the same as the ones I’ve made, and sell for $300 from Kolar, get these ones for a FRACTION of that price.

    Skeet Man,

    I am looking for 12oz of weight to make my 12 gauge K-80 have the same feel as when it is tubed, so I guess I am needing your steel insert weight. Am I correct? If so, what is the current cost and how would you like the payment?

    Thanks

    Larry Hamblin

    most tubes dont weigh 12 onces- depends on the tube and what the length is of course

    put your tubes on a scale and you will find out

    I have a set and am very satisfied.

    Ian - I have a question....at the time I bought mine, I had to grind down one end in order to get them to fit under the ejectors of the K80 which don't have as much clearance as the Kolar ejectors. Do you now make them in two versions?

    Baron- The only new thing since I made your weights is the option for steel inserts in the threads (to facilitate repeated removal and installation).

    I make the weights short enough now so there is no interference b/w the ejector and the weight, in other words, I don't try to fit them below the ejectors anymore.
