390 weight/tube end cap?

1170 Views 9 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  BAD 303
A few years back a guy I knew who has since disappeared shot a 390 or 391 with a magazine weight that looked like tube under the barrel the length of the barrel.

Was not a Breako or Brielly type weight it was long and made the gun almost look like a stack barrel. It was not a high cap mag extension.

I recall asking him about it and I think he picked it up in Florida at a sporting tournament. The idea was to make it swing like an O/U.

Anyone ever remember seeing one of these and who made it??

Thanks

I remember seeing one on a 391 at a Sporting Clay Tournament and talking to the guy about it and trying it. By memory I do not think it was as heavy or heavier than My Graco unit but with it being longer the balance was different. It looked like an over and under 391. It seems like I remember it had some vent holes on it out on the end. I can not remember where he said it was from. It was the only one I saw in Michigan. Maybe post on a Sporting forum?

i had also built a full length one years ago when i was a machinist that had a weight inside, adjustable in length and you could add or subtract weight to your liking. The tube was the same length and diameter of the barrel, so it looked pretty cool. The idea behind it was not only for muzzle weight/balance, but more for skeet on station Low 8 where the bird came up to the bottom of your barrel, to give it a more O/U appearance.

It was made and still is available from Rhino in Florida i believe. Getting one may be a problem as Joe is very unreliable and seldom does what he promises. So with that all i can say is pay with a credit card and hope he comes thru.
