If anyone owns either the 7 inch fluted or both the 7 and 5 inch bull, could you weigh what you have (I can't even weigh my bull barrel because I have no scale in that range) for me please?  I like the 7 for its longer sight radius but if it is heavier, I would scrap the idea.
And if the longer barrel is lighter, consider this an offer to swap my bull barrel for your fluted 7 incher, in case you're interested.
Thanks,

Long ago I shot the 7.25" fluted barrel as slowfire practice mostly as a prelude to FP.  The long barrel is not much different than the bull weight.  But it felt nose heavy.  I didn't like that for timed and rapid.  I did add a home made 6oz weight to the bull Trophy barrel.  That was quite heavier but did not seem nose heavy.  Kind of a weight thing vs torque thing. 

I do not have any fluted barrels anymore.  Probably had 4-5 in the past.  Today I really like the heavy tapered Tournament barrel for iron sights.  On a bridge sighted or slide sighted gun, either way.
Or better yet the Space Barrel.  Then you see my homemade weight compared to the HS weight

I'm recovering from shoulder surgery and since I shoot irons and therefore can not use the aluminum sleeved barrel from LSP (no front sight), I am poking around for lighter options.  I didn't know about the space barrel though.  Thank you.

Drill and tap a hole up front and add a Ruger sight.
