    To the root of this problem. The man wants to add weight to his riffle. A slab of lead 3 inches wide attached under the forearm as long as possible and as thick as necessarily for as much weight as he wants.

    It could be painted or covered with something to keep it from looking like just a slab of lead.

    If you don't like eBay or PP because of their firearm policies that's certainly your choice. I don't choose to cut off my nose to spite my face. I don't care enough to bother looking but does eBay have a published anti-gun ownership policy or do they just refuse to allow them to be sold thru their venue? Just want to make sure that you're not confusing the two.

    you are such a two sided/two faced child.
    you said the paper had no standards for taking ad money and being anti-gun.
    but you..
    you are supossedly pro gun but spend your money with a known anti gun company.
    you should stay off sites that have adult supervision.

    Link the anti-gun policy from eBay's website if you would please.

    The way I read it;
    -lead=11.34
    -gold=19.25
    -tungsten=19.25
    -tungsten carbide (old milling bits)=14.29, still heavier than lead
    Dnser is the word you are looking for.

    More weight per volume.
