There are plenty to choose from, eg, CMMG, Del-Ton, or Bushmaster.  But with any of those, I think it would be wise to purchace them without the BCG and just go ahead and get yourself a quality/top-of-the-line LMT or BravoCompany BCG for only about $30 extra than what you would have paid for the standard BCG.  Of course, that's just my $0.02 and YMMV, etc, etc.


ETA: Either of the two linked to above would weight-in at about 3 lbs 12 oz or less (per this thread).
