I don't think it's about weight, I think, it's about balance. If you have a barrel-heavy gun, it's hard to move them... I would prefer balance set more towards the stock to make barrels livelier. K-80 sporter is great, especially since you can add weights right into their stock with Krieghoff K-80 Buttstock Weight System.I shot bunker for many years. 32" barrels, mod/full, most of the best shooters shot the same. There is no advantage to a light gun.
When I shot Bunker for a few years, I used a Beretta 682 Bunker gun. It shot 50/50 on both barrels, and the barrels were 29.5" long. Standard from there factory at the time.hello,
new to this forum.
i was told that when shooting bunker, you want a light gun, modified choke and flat (50/50) shooting gun instead of typical trap guns which are usually heavy and shoots high?
Even shooting Krieghoffs? Ken Jones, 1966 world record, Tom Garrigus silver medal 1968, Don Haldeman gold medal 1976 all shot Krieghoffs so I guess you are correct.As said above a low rib, 50/50 -> 60/40 gun is what is generally used. that does NOT mean that is what will necessarily work best for you. Try whatever and use what proves itself to you.
I mean, there are people even using Krieghoffs so you have to know that there are some strange kinds of preferences out there.
