    NCG stands for New Centre of Gravity.

    Got rid of more than 1/3 kilograms dead weight.
    Centre of gravity moved an inch backward.

    Take off your air tank to feel what this all means... :cool:

    Was going to say I did a similar experament last winter with lumps of roofing lead, Yes the CoG moved back, from the centre or the hamster back nearer the trigger, idea being to make the gun more stable for standing shots. Was more pointable but along with that felt a lot less stable. Needless to say I wasnt happy with the feel of this so the experament was abandoned.

    Save some more weight take off that dirty great hook, scope & rail and the silly little bipod. Stick a 10 x 40 Leup on the top and you would have a nice HFT gun:p:p:p:D:D:D

    It may well have moved back but also UP also, as Rob says both solves and creates probs! Nice muzzle break by the way;)

    Considering chucking weight forward and low on a pro target/ev2 to increase intertia and reduce top heavyness, thoughts?

    well done Andras - they are front heavy, and I do prefer the weigth to be towards the rear on my rifles

    So a better balanced rifle, and no POI shift due to temperature - you are onto a winner there mate :)

    Do similar on all mine, you can add weight where required.
    It would fractionally move balance point but guns still way top heavy. I would be more concerned about wind resistance:D

    Dubious about those P70 stocks they are already the flimsiest stocks around before modding. Easy to move forend with one finger and thumb with so little effort it would shock you.

    Getting rid of that barrel sleeve will save half a pound or even cutting it back to dovetail.
