I would suggest to you, that if women lean back while shooting, it may not be the gun that creates the front-heaviness

Don't be anxious about stereotyping. We know our bodies are different than men's. If women lean back with rifles, it may be arm-strength that is the culprit. That can be fixed with lifting some small weights.
