Post specs if possible as well.

Mine clocks in at about 17 lbs when loaded.

24" Heavy Bull A3 Upper
RRA Lower w/ 2 Stage Trigger
10-40x50mm scope
RRA 1" Scope Riser
Oly Arms Long Carbine FIRSH
YHM Rail Covers
Harris 6-9 BR Swivel Bipod
KAC Bipod Mount
A2 Buttstock
DMPS SPR Adjustable Buttplate
NM Lead Stock Weight (custom cut and drilled to use with buttplate)
Adjustable grip with palm rest

Needless to say, it's not for casual toting around. I have other ARs for that.... this one is the bench king.

Oly/RRA mid-length carbine with contoured barrel (no optics or other accessories yet): Just over 6 pounds.

Colt Sporter HBAR w/CMP mods: About 14 1/2 pounds.

My wife asked me to build her a featherweight which should end up being just under 6 pounds with optics.
