    Where could a person locate lead tape, for added barrel weighting?

    Go to your local hobby shop. Look for one that carries HO RR items. Used to weight railcars. Also any tire shop has it. Cut it to your spec size.

    I have lead tape that I had made in Germany.

    I had it made so that it *just* fits under your barrel and wraps up to about half the circumference of the barrel. You can use golf tape, but the problem with that is that it's only half as wide, and you'd need to run two lengths side-by-side, plus you get half the weight. You can easily run multi-layers of my tape with ease.

    My tape is held on with a special adhesive which has nearly a nonexistent thickness. It is easily removed with lacquer thinner, acetone, or most any solvent that will not affect the bluing. No, lacquer thinner, nor acetone will affect bluing.

    I have it on my own Perazzi's.

    I sell it for $7.00/5' and that includes postage. In fact, I lose some on the postage. This tape is similar to what Phil Kiner has with him at his clinics. That's where I got the idea and was lucky in finding a manufacture, albeit in Deutsch land.
