Just curious because my girlfriend was saying how much heavier my current AR with a 24" stainless bull barrel is compared to the collapsable stock 16" barrel I used to have. So I weighed myself without the gun (boy am I fat) and then with the gun. The gun as it sits right now without a scope OR mount weighs 10.5 pounds! Is this heavy or about right for the configuration?

My bushy DCM is about 17 lbs. But that is including a 6-24x50 scope and bipod. Without the extras, its about 14-15lbs.

Troy you must be gonna carry that thing some where.
Both of my AR's weigh in just over 16# each. 1 is a pony w 1 in 7 HBAR (DCM legal) the other is DPMS stainless lower and converted 7.62 upper with Krieger bbl and lots o lead. And they will shoot good too!!!

Heaviest is my custom AR15 I use for squirrel shooting, weighs in at about 15 pounds unloaded.


When I get my AR10 into an accurized target form it will probably outweigh my custom AR15.

The thing that is funny is that it nearly fills a 56 inch long Blackhawk sniper rifle case, it leaves about 6 inches of space at the front of the case. Rifle measures between 48-50 inches long depending on how I have the buttstock adjusted.

I do carry it around quite a bit, literally cause I don't have a sling on it. When I'm walking around I set the butt into my hip and carry it muzzle high, it's just a "make my day" sorta thing. Here's a bit of a joke picture for you when I recently put on all my "Tactical Fag" gear to post in another forum, I'm holding my squirrel rifle pretty much in the only way that is comfortable.

But typically I like to hike to one good spot that over looks a large wide open area, then I just setup shop and lay waste to as many squirrels as possible. The rifle is good enough for 500+ yards accuracy wise, at the local range I've hit Ca. Ground Squirrels out to 400 yards and very nearly hit them at 500-550+ yards by putting bullets under their bellies and kicking dirt in their faces.

Good news is the gun is almost entirely recoiless, only a little bit of buffer "slap" manages to bounce the crosshairs off target. The buffer slap appears to bounce the crosshairs off target by only about 1/4 inch at 100 yards even when viewing at 20x magnification.

This is the beefy bastage that everyone SWEARS must weigh about 15 lbs. It just looks that heavy. Actually it weighs in at just under 8 pounds.

Next in line, weighing in at just a hair over 6 pounds is the postban Bushmaster V-Match Carbine.

Next skinniest is the most plane jane of the bunch. Weighing in at about 5 and a quarter pounds.

Last one I tried to build with light weight in mind while still having everything I wanted. Without the Reflex or Surefire, it weighs in at under 4.5 pounds. With the accessories, it is just barely 5 pounds.
