    Can anyone tell me the weight of a PFS, or the relative weight increase over an average wood stock (without any recoil reduction device). Trying to determine if adding one would cause a major balance problem. Thanks

    The PFS weighs slightly more than an average wood stock. However, it can weigh a good bit more than a particular stock. For example, it weighs more than a K80 sporting stock, but is closer in weight to an MX-8 monte carlo.

    When you add a recoil reducer and adjustable butt plate and comb, the weight is not much different.

    On my scale, the new style PFS is 26 oz. without grip or pad or counter weight.

    The removable weight weighs 4 oz. (new style) 5 oz. (old style)

    Kick-eez pad weighs 6 oz

    K80 sporting stock w/pad - 28 oz. Non-adj.

    MX 8 MC - 35 oz. Non-adj.

    I have an adjustable MX stock weighing 48 oz.

    So add for the PFS grip and bolt (10 oz), all together, maybe 46 ounces. Not too bad considering all the features, plus saving the shoulder. GAP
