S-17 12''weight class

Recommended Posts

Anyone weigh their 12'' after installing the furniture? My s-17 will come with the Hellion and cant seem to find any published weight on that little piece of Aluminum. At 65 I need to get back into weight lifting anyway, getting way to soft. I believe shooting 3'' 00 loads gives a old coot like me the required daily exercise .

12's are rare, so I don't have one handy.

 

Generally speaking the SBS's are lighter than full-length guns, and that coupled with the shorter length produces more recoil.

Ojinok2,

 

Congrats on the Tromix purchase. Our Hellion HG for the 12" S17 is pretty light, I don't think you'll feel any significant difference in overall weight of your S17 with it on or off.

 

Also, if felt recoil is at all a concern I highly recommend you have Tony install one of his custom fit Limbsavers if you haven't done so already. I run one on my personal 8" S17 and, considering the platform, couldn't believe how comfortable it is to shoot.

 

Let me know if there's anything more I can do to assist you.

 

Thanks,

Thanks for the reply Zach. Would you mind telling us what you might be working on these days. Any modifications or new products in the near future?
