    My Trap Gun seems to be heavy in the front. I am trying to find out if a counterweight in the butt stock makes sense. In other words how do I get a better balanced gun?

    If a gun "feels" heavy in the front, adding weight to the other end will always change the balance point. Personally, I think the SKB 85 series guns point extremely well and have perfect balance. My 32" Sporting model is one of the very best pointing guns I have ever shot, PERIOD! A close second would be the 30" Trap model that I sold.

    You may try just adding a thick Kick-Eez pad as they are heavier than the original pad on SKBs. If you are happy with the pad on your gun now, just put some weight in the stock bolt hole.

    Andy thaks for your comments. Weight in the Butt stock hole is probably the question/answer I was looking for.
