Any disadvantages of going light? What are the Pros? I have a midweight on order with Adco and considering having them turn down the bbl under the guards. I'm gonna put a YHM 2-piece 4-rail, Eotech/Aimpoint w/mount, BUIS, Tango Down and M93A on it.

I know I'd rather carry a can of beer, and not a keg Lighter is better if you are going to be carrying it on patrol or something, otherwise I do not believe have a lighter weight barrel has any advantages over a heavy bbl.

The light goes on the outside of your handguards

I think if you're just gonna "shoot" and not shoot service rifle matches etc, then lightwight it probably plenty accurate and a little lighter.

That said, I had a Bushmaster 20" HBAR that I could not outshoot... however, my Colt mil-spec 20" is kinda questionable. Shots fine, but pressures on the forend are evident when shooting. Never noticed that with the HBAR Bushy upper.

If I had to do it over again and was building another upper, I'd go with an HBAR. Weight difference is really not that big a deal to me.

Once you go light, nothing else is right. Go light, it will serve you well. I'd also spend the extra $$ and go chrome. mY $.02. AIRBORNE!

Oh yeah, I defenitely go chrome. I decided to go light under the guards. Thanks for the replies

for 3 gun I like a habar. The rifle is held at worst case 60 seconds on some courses. it helps with the second shot. Though this year I am going to flip a coin and either use my 16 hbar or my 20" A1 proflie.

I like 'em both so I have both and then some. Get both of them, standard answer.

It's an absolute joy to sit arround at the range for 20 min, yes, 20 min. to let an HBAR cool down
