I AM THINKING OF PUTTING TOGETHER A PRE-BAN LIGHTWEIGHT AR WITH A 16" BARREL, FLAT TOP RECIEVER WITH A DPMS REAR SIGHT. THE BARREL HAS TO BE CHROME LINED 5.56 CHAMBER. DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE SOMETHING LIKE THIS OR AT LEAST CLOSE TO IT? PLEASE POST PICS IF SO!

While they're not flat tops, these are on the lightweight side... [;)] Bushmaster Shorty and ArmaLite M4C, both sporting Bushy chrome lined barrels and 5.56 chambers. Barrels cut to 14 1/2", reprofiled lightweight, and A3 TacBrakes to bring the barrels back to 16"... work by Kurt at KKF. Since this pic was taken I've replaced the A2 stock setups with Stubby Stocks and shaved a bit more weight... they're now 5 pounds 3 ounces dry...

Post-ban, lightweight AR with 16" barrel, flat top receiver, and GG&G backup rear, chrome lined (Bushmaster) 5.56 chamber. Weighs less when I dump the forward grip and light which is quick detach. A just under 5 lbs stripped I think.

[img]http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/47b3cc36b3127cce846f3cca18980000001610[/img] Model 1 kit with RRA lower and RRA M4 type with DPMS sight. (not as light) [img]http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/47b3cf09b3127cce828a621e5b840000003610[/img] Lighweights built from Model 1 kits and RRA lowers. No chrome chambers/bores, but then I am not planning to deploy to SW/SE Asia on covert counter terrorist operations as some on the forum.

Here is a pic of a RRA lower and a Model 1 upper with lightweight barrel, ARMS #40 sight and Kobra Red dot. The rifle is 5 1/2 lbs without the kobra sight. [IMG]http://webpages.charter.net/lousar/pictures/AR-lightweight.jpg[/IMG]
