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.

    <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). 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. These weights are custom made to the specifications of your barrels,
    not mass-produced like some alternatives.</span>

    Any thoughts of using a heavier alloy? Bronze? Tungsten/copper alloy etc? Would lead be a no-no?

    lead doesn't have the strength. Any other alloy (especially tungsten) would increase the cost exponentially, due to the increase cost of material, and greatly increased difficulty of machining. Steel has the same weight as brass when using a similar profile.

    I will testify to the quality, usefullness, and good price of this product. I have Ian's barrel weight on a K80 barrel I use for 12 ga skeet. I have Kolar's steel weights of similar design on a 12 ga barrel of...yes, my Kolar.

    Ian's have worked equally as well for a fraction of the cost.

    Cheers

    Is there anything on the barrel side of the weights to prevent the bluing from wearing off? I would think that after using them for some time there would be some kind of wear there.

    The weights are backed with tape to prevent any metal on metal contact. There is no friction between the weights and barrels anyways, since they are not moving back and forth, so I doubt even if you were to put them out w/ out any tape there would be any wear... I've put these on everything from a Stoeger to a Beretta SO-5, Kolars, Krieghoffs, ect w/ no issues whatsoever.

    I have a set of Ians weights. They are great and do not leave any marks at all. My son borrows them from my K80 and uses them on his Beretta with no problems. Mike

    I don't guess there is any way to make a set in wood or some other light weight material. I have a gun that has 28ga & 410ga barrels but only 1 forearm. I would like to use the barrel weights as spacers for the 410 barrel with the 28ga forearm.

    I used to see multi-barrel skeet gun sets with this setup.

    Thanks
    Jack
