BTT

How about the weight difference between the two uppers?

I don't have a suitable scale so I can't tell what the actual weight is, but it is fairly light. With a Troy MRF handguard and a Magpul stock, mine balances right behind the barrel nut.

Does RRA offer a "govt" profile barrel now? Or are you talking about the ones Adco is making up? You might try asking in Adco's forum over on the Industry board. They've probably weighed on of theirs.

Here are some details about the RRA mid-length barrel I received from ADCO this week:

weight of barrel w/standard front sight base: 2lbs. 1oz.
weight of barrel with phantom flash suppressor, standard mid-length handguards, delta ring assembly and gas tube: 2lbs. 11oz.
weight of above +CMT flattop upper receiver w/o bolt/carrier assembly: 3lbs. 3oz.
Barrel is .610" under handguards, .740" forward of front sight base
No ID stamping on front of barrel, barrel stamped "N9C" in front of barrel nut
No front sight post assembly
No front sling swivel assembly
Overall finish: very nice

(Edited to correct info....)
