Hello Fellow Shooters,
I used to shoot PPC many years ago and my son got me back recently. I have a S&W 686, front adjustable sight and am trying to locate a slip on heavy underlug for extra weight like I had in the past. I can't remember who it was made by and can't seem to locate one in Brownells or in any gun magazines. I was wondering if one of you guys or gals could lead me to a source.
Thanks,
Jack

I'm glad I spotted this message as I have been looking for the same thing for my 686. If you find anything please post again here and I'll do the same.
I know Ron Power use to make one as he did a lot of PPC guns and equip but he is retired now and will not do anymore. One of my fellow shooters knows him. I heard his son has somewhat taken over and has some Ruger/SW stuff on a site http://www.powercustom.com/
If you come across anything elsewhere please let me know as I'll do the same.
Best.

Alan,
I have found a person who used to make heavy underlugs and might be willing to make one to order. If you can give me your e-mail, I will try to get you a picture and more info.

Try Jim Clark of Shreveport LA. I believe the website is Clarkcustomguns.com , he caters to competitive shooters and adds underlugs on bull guns. The underlug might not be on the website but at least you could get a phone number for him. He may be able to steer you in the right direction. Good Luck!!

I have one made by Wichita Arms. It is the one that has a slant compensator on the end. The comp part can be sawed off and then you would just have the weight. It is blued steel. If interested email me. gunsmith@jcbgunsmith.com

Those weights were originally built by Bill Jarvis. I'm not sure if he's still in business. I remember several Bianchi Cup Shooters were using them in the late 80's. I hope this will help you
