I would guess the DD lite rail is the lightest FF rail(I had the 12" and it was almost nothing in weight) There is a thread somewhere where one of the dealers weights them all. Ill see if I cant dig it up

I asked this question a little while ago and it was argued that the lightest rail is either a LaRue or a DD.

From Daniel Defenses website

M4 Rail 7.0 = 8.5oz
AR15 LiteRail 7.0 = 8.5oz
Omega Rail 7.0 = 8.0oz

I think thats about as light as you'll find
