i understand why you would want to put it in line with the stock to lessen recoil.
i decided to put mine as low as possible, to help lower the center of gravity.

Image

i did end up sliding the weight as far to the rear of the stock.

Image
that's the 2lb weight. ( i dented in the sides of this extra one to see how malleable it was.

so all that is good but what about the results????
i changed pellets from jsb exact 7.33 to exact 8.44 grain
but... it did improve the shooting of the gun!!! :D
(10 m. sitting on floor with camera tripod with small homemade suede sand bag on top.) :mrgreen:

Image

so it is shooting with out even a tear down yet, so i am pretty happy with the groups. (i shot 1 pellet per target because the paper will tear if i don't)

Get a glue gun and fix it in place to keep it from shifting. that will help too!

Either one. The glue gun is easier to remove if you need to add more or less. If you bought some pellets that are absolute crap, mix them in the epoxy and pour it in. Make a dam out of duct tape or masking tape to keep it in one place. I know we aren't talking about an Anschutz here, but if you get a better score and you feel more comfy in balancing the rifle, Do IT! :D

I've had a load of good luck with weighting different stocks on several rifles - oddly enough? The best result was on my cheapo, all plastic M4-177. I used blue tack (sticky tack, poster tack, whichever) to fix my weights in place. Completely removable, and I can change the distribution of the weight within a couple minutes.

You wouldn't expect it - but that SIMPLE addition added so much of a damper effect that the first time I fired the rifle after weighting, I didn't realize it actually SHOT anything. It felt like nothing more than the hammer spring jumped. The tack soaked up so much that even the "twang" it delivered before sounded more like an abrupt *THAP* from a flyswatter. Weird comparison, I know, but you should be able to guestimate the difference between the two.

Albeit the 4177 doesn't have much kick to it, whatever WAS there? It's gone. I may as well have laid it on top of some sandbags, and stacked several more on top. The thing doesn't want to budge.

yea, i did that one time with bb's and epoxy in a p17.

i am initially really happy with the trigger and the accuracy for an entry priced springer.
the lock up seems to be working ok now (after a couple of flair ups)
and ...it shoots the best out of all the springers i have had.

(can't wait to get a WK :lol: )

This is one of my beefs regarding synthetic stocks. Durable but a little too light at the back end. I like your solution of adding weight to the butt stock. Ultimately I would like to convert my PCP to a bullpup, I think this would balance all the weight without adding any.

Look up ralphtonka posts, his south of the border budz put a bull pup together with an electronic trigger upon the AT44. Sweet set up.
