    Default Balance weights on rifle...

    Was just wondering, has anyone fitted balance weights to their rifle to get the weight up?

    My MPR, according to the specs is coming in at around 3.3kg. The EV2 and Steyer LG110 come in at
    around 3.8kg if i'm not mistaken (without scopes, etc)
    The above 2 just seem so much more stable with the additional weight.... (I knowing the stock configs are different)

    I think about 200 - 250grams to the butt and 250grams to the stock rails should bring this up to achieve similar handling and balance especially for those stading shots.

    I have some plans which i'm hoping to complete soon......

    Yes Lukas has added weight to his Walther.

    Jason at 1 stage also put lead in the stock of his 400.

    I saw a lot of it at Worlds in America.They have weights hanging off their guns in all directions.Funny it seems we dont worry about it here.

    I've got something in mind - will post some pics as soon as it is done. I am actually amazed at how little info there is regarding this subject on the net...

    My Steyr clocks in at 5.2kg with a scope mounted. Yes it does help with standing shots. Especially in the wind.

    sounds about right - scope adds about 1.4 - 1.5kg to rifle assuming it a Big Nick / Lynx.

    Not sure what my LG100 weighs, but it felt like a bus (compared to my S410 Carbine) when I handled it the first time. Later on I added about 250grams to the butt, more for the sake of balance and comfort than anything else.
