I recently heard a shooter talking about the “balance” of his new carbine. He didn’t like how front heavy it was so he was shopping for heavier stocks to “even it out.” Someone else chimed in and said that he shouldn’t seek too even out the balance since because a front heavy rifle “settles better.”
How much do you pay attention to the balance of a rifle – specifically a self-defense type carbine? If balance concerns you, do you prefer front heavy, rear heavy, or neutral balance? Do you choose components based on how they will impact the balance of your rifle?
