I added some lead filled copper pipe on Saturday, one piece in the pistol grip and a couple of larger ones into the butt secton of the stock. My HW97K stock has three pieces of lead/copper fitted into the butt of the stock, the balance point of both guns was too far forward for my liking, the lead makes the rifle more neutral. As an added bonus the extra weight helps tame some of the recoil.

The pipe is then sealed into place to stop any movement/vibration, and when set, finished flush with the woodwork.

The pistol grip isn't quite deep enough, so to sort that and cover over the lead i am adding an ally spacer and some rosewood.
