Harrell Tuner and James Pappas Noodle
I have a Anschutz’s 1913, Harrell tune and a JJ Papas Noodle.
I have been shooting ok with the gear I have but purchase a SEB coaxial rest and a set of Harrell weights and went out to play today. The first thing I wanted to try as I have not seen or herd any that has the noodle at any of the weights to so I thought I would add the 130z weight to the tuner the screw on the noodle. Before shooing anything I spent an hour fine tuning the SEB so that it moved slowly but also when it was set in the position it stayed there. With this type of rest I found that it worth having a spirit level to make sure the base is level at the front as well as the rear.
I put about 15 shots into a sighter and found that one full revolution of the tuner was enough to have it at its optimum. The wind condition was around 10MPH so not much to worry about. The first card I shot a 249 and 13 x’s , here in the UK you have to obliterate the x to score an ten x.
I than shot a match card which is the last one of the season and scored another 249 and 12x’’s. By adding the extra weight to the tuner and then putting the noodle brought the rifle to a new lever, its early days but the testing is very positive and able to hit more x’s than a standard card.
The Harrell weights only allow you to so much weight but it might be interesting if threads were added to the final weight to see if people were able to get better accuracy using the weights and the noodle.
I am also looking to add a counter weight to SEB to allow even greater smoothness to rest and sill allowing to stay were you put it.
If you buy the weight set from Roger you can add as many weights as you want then add an end cap.
If you look at the von Ahrens Tuner Kit
you’ll see a Ahrens to Harrell Adapter $15.00 that will let you use the von Ahrens weights put the Harrell Adapter on the end then the Noodle.
Thats how I'm going to start off with my Border barrels and see how that goes.
i am not sure but i think the Vo Ahrens weights has a different thread and won't work, i maybe wrong unless someone can say different.
Andy, I was one of the people who tested a von Ahrens Tuner. It has an adapter so you can use a Parallel Noodle on it.

The threads are different that’s why you need the Ahrens to Harrell Adapter. It goes on the end of the Aherns weights and the noodle or any of the Harrell weight will screw onto that. Things would be simpler if they all had the same threads.
