Hi all, I just finished breaking in my new mid-length parts kit build. All’s well as far as function, but while testing, a buddy let me shoot his BM light weight, and it made me wish my midy wasn’t so muzzle heavy. I don’t mind adding weight (e.g. a heavier stock) to the weapon, as it’s just a range plinker for me, but I hope some of you can give me some ideas to balance the heavy barrel. Right now it sports a plastic 4 pos. stock. I feel it’s only right that you help; being this sight is heavily responsible for my new addiction. Thanks in advance. Seriously though, pray for all those fighting terror however they may be doing so.

get a govt bbl

you can try to weigh down the end by getting a heavier stock (magpul, etc), H buffer, and buttstock mag pouch w/ a couple of loaded mags

Send your barrel to ADCO and have it turned down under the handguards to gov't profile.

That will make a world of difference in how the rifle feels.

Right there you've got the rationale to start a new build.

Well, you can either have the barrel reprofiled (fluted, gov't profile, lightweight, dimpled) to make the front lighter - or you can add a heavier stock to make the back heavier (Magpul M95 Precision Stock or M93 Adjustable, VLTOR or Crane with 123 batteries stowed in stock)

Right now you have a heavy 16" barrel combined with one of the lighter stocks out there, so it is nose heavy.
