Can anyone point me to the source of the lightest weight 16-inch Blackout barrel?

Thanks!

Forker- Legion Firearms makes a light 300 barrel. Comes in three colors. I comes with a price tag though.

Thanks. Out of my price range, though.

The AAC 16" tube is a lightweight profile. Might not be the lightest, but it's sure close. I think Wilson makes a very lightweight stainless tube. Give them a look.

Wilson makes one coming in at about 25 ounces IIRC. I have two other of the LW barrels, on in 5.56 and one in 7.62 x 40 converted to .30 HRT and I am very happy with both of them. Even though lightweight the 5.56 groups sub MOA with Black Hills match ammo and the .30 HRT is turning in some sub 1/4 MOA groups with handloads. Not bad for lightweight barrels IMO.

Midway has a lightweight barrel: http://www.midwayusa.com/product/311028/ar-stoner-barrel-ar-15-300-aac-blackout-ultra-lite-contour-1-in-8-twist-16-stainless-steel#pr-header-311028
It is probably not the lightest, but I think it is in the ballpark. I love the barrel. It has 5R rifling. I had to search for what this meant. It is very easy to clean, which is a big deal when shooting suppressed. I use a thread protector when hunting, makes a very light, compact package.

Yes, I would like a 1/7 med. weight 30HRT

Melonite from ARP or Wilson will work for me(Marty or Kirk too).
