If you are looking for light, you need to build it yourself.

Pistol length barrel with lightweight profile
low profile gas block
carbon fiber handguard
CavArms lower with stock shortened.
Microdot of some kind on a riser
slick-side upper
Standard M-16 bolt
Standard internals
20rd Pmag
Pick a flash suppressor

There you go.
