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.

    BENEFITS!:<span style="color: black"><br />-Better swing characteristics for your gun.  Do you find yourself swinging through/by targets?  Is your gun uncontrollable or "whippy"?  Adding weights to your barrels allows you to have a slower, more deliberate, controllable swing, allowing you to put the barrels where you want them, rather than having the gun determine where the barrels end up.  My weights also provide an excellent way to re-balance your gun after you've had a new recoil pad, recoil pad adjuster, recoil reducer such as a Gracoil or RAD, mercury weight, or adjustable comb installed in your gun.</span>

    <span style="color: black">-2-3% reduction in actual recoil.  By increasing the overall weight/mass of your gun, the gun is better able to absorb the recoil, meaning your shoulder takes less punishment</span>

    <span style="color: black">-Decrease in muzzle jump.  As you add weight in front of the balance point of the gun, that weight acts as a damper, retarding the barrels tendency to jump up when fired, allowing you to experience faster and more accurate target acquisition.</span>

    <h3 class="fw-title"><a name="317963913"></a>The Back Story.... </h3>
    <div class="fw-text">
    <span class="postbody">I had been searching for something for the longest time to add some weight to my barrels and make my gun more controllable. I didn't want anything clamped onto the barrels, as it would ruin the lines of the gun. After searching about 3 years, I ended up manufacturing my own weights. They fit neatly between the barrels, and are held together by draw screws (most common) or silicone adhesive (for guns with a solid mid-rib, or where barrel spacing precludes the use of screws).<span>  For guns with a solid mid-rib, you can also have a gunsmith drill and tap your mid-rib for grub screws, which can be used to hold the weights to your gun, if you would like an alternative to using RTV silicone.  </span>These weights are custom made to the specifications of your barrels, not mass-produced like some alternatives.<o:p></o:p></span>

    <span class="postbody"><span style="font-size: 14pt"> To date, I’ve manufactured these weights Krieghoff K80/K32 (Over/Under and Unsingle), Kolar (Over/Under and Unsingle), Beretta (682, 686, ASE90, DT10), Browning, Perazzi (Over/Under and Unsingle), Caesar Guerini and Blaser, and for guns in 12ga, 20ga, and 28ga. The design of these weights are the same no matter what break-action shotgun you are using, so even if I haven't made them for your gun before, there is no doubt that I can.<span>  </span><o:p></o:p></span></span>

    <span class="postbody"><span style="font-size: 14pt"> These weights weigh .44 oz/inch combined for both sides if you wanted to figure out how much yours would weigh (example, a 10" weight would weigh 4.4oz total). This is typically the maximum weight that can be hidden under the forend.<span>  </span>I can also manufacture weights for the barrels in front of the forend if you wanted to match weight a barrel to one with sub-gauge tubes, or just add more weight overall. <o:p></o:p></span></span>
    <span class="postbody"><span style="font-size: 16pt; font-family: 'Times New Roman'; color: red">Price for weights is $60 per set, up to 10" in length, which includes First Class Shipping, Insurance, and Delivery Confirmation within the United States. Foreign orders are accepted, and will require an additional shipping charge (please contact me for an exact cost). Longer weights will be priced on a per job basis.</span><span style="font-size: 14pt; font-family: 'Times New Roman'; color: red"> </span></span><span style="font-size: 14pt; font-family: 'Times New Roman'"><br /> <span style="color: red"><br /> <span class="postbody">Terms: Due to the custom nature of these weights, all orders must be prepaid.  Orders are non-refundable after weights have been manufactured, as they are made specifically for your gun.  If there is an error in manufacturing, replacement weights will be made. Turnaround time for weights is typically one week or less from the date the payment is received.</span><br /> <br /> <span class="postbody">Payment: I accept cash, money orders, cashier's checks, personal checks, and Paypal.  I am setup to accept any form of Paypal payment (bank transfer, instant transfer, echeck, or credit card).</span></span></span>

    <div class="fw-text">
    <span style="font-size: 14pt">When you contact me about ordering weights, I'll need the following information, so please have it available when you contact me:<br /> <br /> -The length of weights you desire (This is the Red line, labeled LENGTH).  If you are looking for the maximum weight to fit completely under your forend, do the following.  Put your barrels on the action, and measure from the tip of the ejector to the end of the forend, the mid hanger, or where the mid-rib starts (depending on the make and model of gun).</span><span style="font-size: 14pt"><o:p></o:p></span>

    <span style="font-size: 14pt">-How far back from where the muzzle end of the weights will there be room for screw clearance.  This is the Blue line, labeled "SCREW CLEARANCE".  Begin by checking clearance with 2 stacked pennies (or a #4-40 screw (.108” diameter). If you cannot fit 2 stacked pennies between the barrels, try a dime and the edge of a credit card (or a #2-56 screw (.082” diameter).  Provide me with this length, as well as which diameter screw will work.  If you do not have clearance for either screw size, or have a solid mid-rib, you will have to attach your weights with RTV silicone.<o:p></o:p></span>

    Please note that drawings or sketches are appreciated if you have a gun that may be difficult to fit weights to, or have special requirements!

     

    <span class="postbody">Weights that are setup with #4-40 screws now come standard with steel inserts, which provide additional strength and durability.  Weights that utilize 2-56 screws will have the brass itself threaded as there are no steel inserts available in this size.</span>

    I installed a set of Iam’s weights over the weekend and I’m very pleased.

    Good product, fair price, nice guy to do business with.

    Just thought I would also add my comments on how nice of barrel weights Ian (skeet_man) builds. I was probably one of his first customers for my K-80 and when I received the weights, I was really impressed with his workmanship and his detail to be able to machine these weights to fit between the barrels (under my forearm). I had Ian make the weights for my K-80 skeet gun, because I had just bought a tubed barrel set and wanted to shoot this gun instead of the ASE-90 I had been shooting in registered skeet events. I shoot a K-80 in registered trap events and thought it would be about the same to shoot a Krieghoff in another sport. But after trying both the ASE-90 and the K-80 at a shoot, I feel I shoot the Beretta better, but I don't have a chance to shoot much registered skeet anymore, but I still take the K-80 out every so often (with Ian's weights in it) and shoot it "just for the fun of it".

    Good job Ian and good luck on your other machining adventures in the future,

    Mike* (MH*)

    I have a set and plan to get more as needed

    This is a rare example of someone doing a service and making a product that no one else makes and that a larger company could not afford to make

    Great guy

    Great design

    Great product

    regards from Iowa

    Gene

    PS if you need to fine tune the length- the ends can easily be ground down with a home grinder- I ordered mine and they were just a little long- and that is what I did-
