Way off topic….Afghanistan Joe Wood 06/17/21 11:01 PM
Help me with this one. I’m struggling to understand.

So, our government has no plans to bring to the US the Afghanistans who risked their lives aiding us in 20 years of war but is willing to let the Taliban slaughter them and their familys, which they have already begun to do. And at the same time the same government has opened their arms to all illegals coming from the south, breaking all our laws and are providing them with all our services. Humm…..I need someone to instruct me on the nuances of right and wrong.

Please help!

Re: Balancing a shotgun KY Jon 06/17/21 07:10 PM
I would put the weight as far away from the barrels as possible. That way a smaller weight, near the butt plate will be able to balance the heavy barrels. Theoretically you could do the same thing with a greater weight nearer the hinge pin but why make a gun any heavier than needed. You want balance not extra mass to tame recoil. But even a balanced gun may not swing well. Heavy barrels can be balanced with weight in the butt but they are still heavy barrels.

How to protect color case hardening? Mike325 06/17/21 06:32 PM
Hello, what have u guys used to help protect traditional color case hardened receivers?

I was thinking of using a poly type car wax (not a cleaner wax or abrasive wax, just a poly coating like meguiers next wax 2.0), rennasaince wax, or eezox (a clp that is good for protecting bluing resists acid fingerprints and is excellent in preventing rust). I read somewhere that carnuba wax should not be used but have no idea if that is accurate or not.

Any ideas?

I have a couple guns I'm interested in protecting one is a 1913 gun which has traditional case hardening and the other a 1970s gun which I assume is a chemical type of case hardening plus varnish but I don't really know on that one.

Thanks!

Re: Balancing a shotgun ClapperZapper 06/17/21 05:53 PM
It’s a pretty simple weighted average calculation.

Recognizing that the barrels weigh several times what the rear half of the stock weighs.

Unless they are very short.

So, once a person cuts the pistol grip off which is behind the center of balance, it magnifies the barrel heaviness.

You end up adding a pretty heavy piece of lead in the back to counteract the concentration of mass in the barrels.

Re: 20 gauge duck gun to game gun. Tom Findrick 06/17/21 05:38 PM
Ted, you keep saying it’s a really nice gun worth thousands in replacement, given to you from a person you respected.
It sounds like you’re about 3/4 of the way of talking yourself into leaving as-is.
I know that’s what I’d do.

Re: Balancing a shotgun Joe Wood 06/17/21 05:30 PM
I totally understand your question, Buzz, and it’s an interesting one. Very similar question to placement of weight in my airplane. If I put 100 pounds in my aft baggage compartment behind the rear seat the plane will fly well. But the same weight placed near the tail would create a very dangerous aft of Center of Gravity situation. But 10 or 15 pounds near the tail would probably have the same effect on CG as the 100 pounds in the aft baggage compartment. So I surmise a weight in the buttstock near the buttplate would be much lighter than one closer to the action.

Re: 20 gauge duck gun to game gun. Lloyd3 06/17/21 02:47 PM
Stan: That was the pad it came with. I'm hearing those Jostam's are getting hard to find now. You'd think someone like Tony Galazan would re-pop them sometime? Don't have that 10 anymore BTW. All that factory 1510 fps steel loosened her up a bit (Heck, it loosened me up a bit too!) so I sent it on down the road. Shooting a lefty 870 in 12 on waterfowl now. Much easier to live with.

All the videos I've watched of Eoropean shooters on sporting clays course carry their guns in cases.

Re: Automatic safeties Shotgunlover 06/17/21 12:08 PM
"Most in Europe carry their guns in slips or cases slung over their backs."

At a skeet range? The point was about wear to the hinge pin from carrying the gun open, which is the rule in shooting ranges.

Or you can go the "moment of inertia" route, as did the late British gun writer Gough Thomas.

Re: Balancing a shotgun ClapperZapper 06/17/21 10:34 AM
Do you have a general set of shotgun dynamic measurements that you like?
If there is a number you are working toward, you can do that on paper and then add a set of weights to accomplish it.

If you are doing it iteratively, I have seen someone take a 2 ounce sinker, thread a 3/8 inch hole through it and use a piece of threaded rod to move the weight for and aft within the butt stock.

I don’t find shotguns balanced exactly on the hinge pin to be satisfying for my shooting.

An inch or two ahead of it seems to be a much steadier configuration for me

Re: Balancing a shotgun Stanton Hillis 06/17/21 10:18 AM
One easy way to play with that, Buzz, is to find some pvc, or other type plastic tubing that will just slide in the stock bolt hole, and leave it long as possible. Epoxy some shot into one end of it, just guess at the amount needed, to get started. You can then insert the tube into the stock hole with the shot at either end and try it with the weight forward, or rearward. You could even make one up with the shot midway the tube, or add more, until you get what you want.
