Thanks for the photo, Dr. Bob. Clearly the LC has a farther forward CG. That will put more of the weight in the front hand, which most people interpert as barrel heavy/weight forward/etc. The closer one hand is to the CG than the other hand, the higher the % of the guns total weight it will support. So, you can see that balance loction, along with individual front hand location, determines the weight distribution into the two hands. Most people will judge a gun as heavier than it really is if the weight distribution into the hands is not to their liking. On the other hand (pun intended), they will judge a gun as lighter than it really is when the weight distribution is to their liking. There is no such thing as "perfect balance" any more than there is "perfect LOP."
