Hey guys, I'm looking into an 18" upper heavy barrel, but was wondering does anyone know how much is the weight difference between say and 18" heavy and light barrel?  Would it be that noticeable?  I want accuracy and reliability while keeping a good amount of mobility.  Thanks.

well i'm going with a midlength gas system and regular hand guards at the moment. I'm hopin that won't make it too heavy.

Just my opinion but an 18" HBAR is not something I would say has a "good amount of mobility" by any stretch.  Barely able to be shot offhand comfortably is a better description IMO.

Once you scope it and load a full mag its not light anymore.

I would send it Steve @ ADCO and have it shaved down to Light Wt profile...

To me being able to hold the rifle on target for a while helps in accuracy and mobility

Get a good crown on it and you should have no worries....

imo
