    Added about 1.50 pounds to my Blaser. Added weight to front and back to balance gun. The guns is not front heavy or back heavy. Great weight system on Blaser. Easy to install and remove weights. Seems to smooth out my swing better. Up 10 targets from this years average on both 16 and caps. I was shooting terrible before. What does your gun weight? Weights 10 lbs as of now and plenty of room to go. Thanks

    backup Remington 90T 10.5 lb's. Both feel just right for me.

    I think the key is balance. Many guys just put weight on the front and none in the back.

    Browning XT @ 8.5 pounds... it's supposed to be a gun, not a barbell.
