BARREL WEIGHTS

3 Ounce Plus Barrel Weight

(Click on any images for large views.)
 
3 Ounce Plus Barrel Weight Good shotgun shooting certainly involves how well your shotgun fits you! The words to describe it are customization, custom-fit gunstock, custom-fit balance, custom-fit point-of-impact (poi), custom-fit length of pull, custom-fit comb or cheek height, custom-fit the sights, customize the overall weight of gun in proportion to the shooter, custom modifications to reduce recoil affect on the shooter, custom items for comfort; all of these modifications are done by gunsmiths or yourself and make a world of difference in better performance over most factory delivered guns.  The attachment is non-damaging and very secure using the 2-sided adhesive, which is on the part under peel-off cover. If necessary to remove, warm with hair dryer and use 17 lb fishing line in both hands with sawing action to cut thru the tape layer. Easy to roll-up the tape residue on the barrel and on the removed Barrel Weight for application of new tape; use cigarette lighter fluid (caution flammable) to clean the sticky surface and degrease for new application.

The 3 Ounce Plus Barrel Weight of Meadow Industries is used to custom-balance the shotgun for better shooting performance.

3 Ounce Plus Barrel Weigh Benefits Are:

  • Gives a smooth Swing and follow-thru.
  • Corrects lightweight "whippy" barrels caused by the factory design or custom back-boring which removes approximately 3 ounces of steel from original design.
  • Add 3 Ounce Plus barrel weight to balance-out the increased weight caused by customizations of the gunstock; such as recoil-reducers and adjustable comb or butt pads.
  • Effective swing weight of 3 ounces placed on the barrel near the fore end becomes 6 ounces when placed 12 inches toward the muzzle (hence the name Plus). Use 2 or more weights if needed.
  • Maintains the preferred balance point near the hinge-pin of break open shotguns; balance point 1/2 inch to rear of hinge pin lets the gun move quicker.
  • Increased barrel weight reduces muzzle jump and reduces felt recoil to the shooter.

Trainers for Olympic trapshooting specify the gun's balance-point to be half way between the hands as you come to the shooting position; this gives best pointing quality and movement of the shotgun to the target. Sporting clays shooting requires fast, accurate pointing and smoothness.

How Barrel Weights Are Applied          ( Practice gun safety--make sure gun is not loaded )

Determine location for the 3 Ounce weight by temporarily wrapping the rubber band provided around the barrel and weight; check guns balance point over your finger or a pencil on a table; move the weight location until swinging the gun feels right for you.

Strong high-temperature 2-sided adhesive under peel-off cover secures the weight to the barrel for years of use. It is easily removed without damage to the barrel.

Barrel-Buddy
"It's back By Popular demand"

The Novel and attractively designed Barrel-Buddy provides variable weight in 1-ounce increments simply by removing the screw and changing the weight/spacer system. The Black Base is high quality hard aluminum and the weights are semi gloss stainless steel, marked as 1 oz, 2 oz, or 3 oz; an "O"-ring at the stem of the locking screw holds the snug compression for a secure hold. Determine location on your barrel similar to the method prescribed for the 3 Ounce Plus fixed weight. This weight gives the features of variable weight for different kinds of shooting, (quick and easy to change). You may want a faster swinging gun for Trap 16 yards and a slower swinging gun with more stability for long yardage Trap. You can also increase the weight when shooting heavier loads to reduce recoil and muzzle jump. Use the weight to obtain best balance between the hands for better gun pointing and quick handling with a more controlled smooth swing. Add weight to light weight barrels to eliminate the whippy quick movements, sometimes caused by weight change after custom work on barrels and gunstock modifications. Your physical strength may change in off-season and you can change swing-weight to match.

Barrel-BuddyThe attachment is non-damaging and very secure using the 2-sided adhesive, which is on the Base under peel-off cover. If necessary to remove, warm with hair dryer and use 17 lb fishing line in both hands with sawing action to cut thru the tape layer. Easy to roll-up the tape residue on the barrel and on the removed base for application of new tape; use cigarette lighter fluid (caution flammable) to clean the sticky surface and degrease for new application.

How The Weight Varies

The empty Base is 1 ounce; weight is nearly 2 ounces with screw and 3 lightweight spacers in the Base. Increased weight can be changed in 1- ounce steps thru nearly 8 ounces by the combinations of the 3 weights and the 3 lightweight Delrin spacers. Keep the screw fully loaded with 3 parts, either all weights, or spacers, or combinations of weight and spacers to give the weight to suit you. Attach the 8 oz weight further out on the barrel 12 inches from the forend and the swing-weight is slowed as if the weight is doubled to 1 pound (16 oz). This really reduces the muzzle jump and recoil that is a problem when shooting doubles.
