Hello again . Like I said in my original review . The butt off the stock is hollow and that makes the gun a little front end heavy . I wanted to balance the gun out a bit and add a little weight . What I did was fill the butt of the stock with a Bondo , copper plated BB mix .

.


.
The inside of the stock was glass like smooth . I ruffed it up a bit by sanding the inside with 40 grit sand paper . This should give the Bondo something to bond to and keep it from popping lose .
This added 2-1/2lbs to the over all weight . The rifle now weighs 12.8 lbs and feels much more balanced . I have not shot it yet so I'm not sure what effect this will have . I sure hope it's positive
