That sounds about right'

You guys are a bunch of ladies who are weighing those beautiful guns with empty mags(the guy carrying empty mags in his gun on duty or downrange prob. wont be to effective but his gun will be lighter) .....so for the record, my weights included one 30rd. pmag fully loaded with TAP 75 gr.
You guys make me feel so fat....at least i am honest and admit to needing to cut out a few little debbies

7.5 unloaded 8.5 loaded..I make sure all of my ARs are under M14 weight.If I want M14 weight Ill carry my M14...consideration given for DMR type rifles...carbines as light as possible with no rails and an Aimpoint on a flat top.I dont use a fore grip and have a seperate light attachment.

I dont know but it sure seems people anymore think the more they put on their AR the better....  I personally dont see the need for a flashlight and some of the other gadgets....  eotec and a detachable Bipod for the range....

Trident - what optic and mount are you using in the top pic? I am in the process of copying this rifle . I am having trouble deciding on an optic and mount though. I don't have a lot of cash to spend, so the optic will have to be on the cheap side at least for now. And... you were not kidding - that 18" barrel is HEAVY. I can't get over the weight difference.

Guess it depends on what your AR is used for. A home defense or duty rifle a light and/or grip makes since. If you use the rifle for hunting or just range shooting then an optic and bi pod might be all you need.

Personally I just think it looks cool  but I am thinking about replacing my rail with a magpul moe hand guard.

Its simply amazing the diff. that the heavier contour 18" barrel makes over a 16" CL......kinda depressing, really
As for the glass and such....Its a NF nxs compact 2.5-10x32 mounted in ADM Recon-x.......secondary glass is a Aimpoint T-1 mounted in a Larue Lt-724 angled mount.  Emulate away pal and thanks for choosing some of mine to put in yours

The top AR is a 16 inch, 6.5 Grendel weighing 8.5 lbs with full mag.
The lower AR is a 16 inch, 5.56  weighing 9.5 lbs with a full mag.
I was surprised-I thought my Grendel weighed more than the 5.56.
Of course larger mag in 5.56.

The upper is from Double Star, they were the only place I could find a chromed 14.5" lightweight pencil barrel (Phantom perm attached) - PRI flip up front sight, ARMS 40L rear sight off the EE, Aimpoint H1 with KZ mount from Botach (killer deal together, I know general consensus is Botach sucks ass but it was a great deal and they got it to me in three days), MOE handguard and pistol grip, CTR stock, BCM Gunfighter CH, RRA BCG, ASAP and MS2 sling. It feels very light and dandy compared ot some of the builds I've got, especially in comparison to my middy with full length rails.

I like a little heft on the front for balast and stability for offhand shooting. In fact my new KAC RAS and rails arrived today and I couldn't wait to pull the light, plastic MOE off and put it and the Surefire GL2 on. On the cheap bathroom scale with a loaded 30rd. Pmag it says a hair over 7lbs. but I think it's heavier. It snaps level on target, the red dot doesn't waver and it now looks and feels like a serious fighting carbine.
