I know you can't add external weights or use weighted grips on a CMP ball gun, but what about for NRA bullseye? I can't find anything in the equipment section that deals with this. My GSP is nose heavy, and I want to balance it out using stick on 5 gram lead weights. Thanks for any info.

Sgt,
I like how you're thinking.
On my GSP, I actually drilled out the rear of the grip palm rest and cemented small lead weights. Completely legal.

you can add as much as you want to a 2700 gun, if you want too add weight to a ball gun, brownells sells a tungston recoil spring keeper, looks like stock and is legal. It weighs about 5 times more than a standard one

I felt that my model 41 was nose heavy and thought it might be the cause of some vertical stringing I was experiencing. My remedy was to wrap the grip with 2 oz of lead golf club weighting tape , remove the rear sight and slide the rail and MatchDot back as far as I could. Will find out in the morning if it did any good.

Thanks.

I do not know what a standard plug and guide rod weighs but the Tungsten Guide Rod is, 3.2 ozs., and a Tungsten Guide Rod Plug is .7 oz. From Brownells
That 2oz of tape on the grip made a big difference in my guns balance. I may even remove some since i moved the sight.

Larry,

What kind of weight is that? Or is that part of the frame?

This is the way Bob Shockey used to add weight to stabilize his pistols. A block of steel, with the upper surface contoured to match the dust cover is attached to the trigger guard by a socket head cap screw. The large dia rod is retained by a set screw on the right side. It was originally fit with Bomar rear and extended from sight. I added the scope base and dot. I don't shoot it as pictured because I found that the dot was enough weight, but this makes an interesting picture.

An easy way to add weight is to put weight in the center of the mag spring. The mags only need to hold 5 rounds.
