    Is there an interest in stock weights like the one shown below? The copper cap is not included. It was used to prevent the lead from leaking out during the pour. The weight shown below is 1 inch in diameter and 3.25" long.

    I could make 3/4, 7/8 or 1 inch diameter weights of different lengths. My standard stocks would all take the 7/8" diameter weight of about 4 inches in length. I'm thinking $25 plus shipping for a 7/8 by 4 incher.

    Anybody interested?

    Brownells has the only comparable fixed weight I could find. It's for an AR15. See the link above. It's priced at $27.99.

    With mine, you'll need a hacksaw to make it fit the stock bolt hole at the butt pad, and a short piece of hose to keep the lead from conforming around the bolt as you shoot. I could look into including a short piece of hose. That old leaky garden hose in the shed might come in handy here.

    I couldn't find anything online that approached what I needed, so I thought I would check to see if there's any interest.

    Thanks, Joe

    These are exactly what I use in my stocks. They work as well or even better than mercury weights. I wrap electrical tape around the out side of the pipe for a snug fit in the stock bolt hole. I also put in a 1/4 x 20 steel drop-in anchor in the lead at one end. This allows you to screw in a 1/4" bolt in the pipe and pull the weight out of the stock if needed.

    ART H.

    Good ideas Art. I could include a piece of hose for the bolt end, a garden hose washer for the pad end and drill a hole in the one end for a long dry wall screw that would be included for easy removal. I'm thinking red rubberized paint to finish it off. Wouldn't want to scratch your gun if you drop it.

    Great idea, would be helpful to know the weight in ounces each size would be.
    Good luck

    For those interested, I used a rolls of pennies and adjusted the weight by adding or substracting pennies from the sleeve. I used electrical tape to make the rolls fit the bolt hole.

    You can also fill the stock bolt hole will shot, this works very well also. Just put a piece of tape over the hole after you fill it with shot.

    The stock weight shown in the picture is 1 inch in diameter, 3.25" long and weighs 1.4 pounds. Will do another size soon.

    Plumbers have 'couplings' used to join two pieces of the same sized pipe. Bought one tonight because a 7/8" pipe is just too loose in one of my bolt holes. One inch pipe is too big, but a 7/8" coupling is perfect.
