21 lbs with everything.


And I thought my Seekins SP10 was heavy.  After seeing that I think I better just STFU and stop complaining about the weight of mine.  :o

Good looking piece though!  :tup:

Yeah, were I to hunt with it, I'd need a healthy gun bearer! It's really fun to shoot. 6.5 Grendel, 24" BHW barrel with 3" break and 1/8 twist, Magpul PRS stock and furniture, Steiner 2-10X scope (not enough; should've gone to 16X), articulating bipod, RRA 2-stage match trigger, Vltor upper, Palmetto lower. I'm shooting the Hornady 123 gr SST, 2575 FPS

Pretty rifle, I like it!
And to think if in a SHTF scenario and you run out of ammo, you can transition it to club mode.  :hello:

I get all giddy looking light weight AR gun porn  :drool:

I won't be running out of ammo.

I never thought you would  :hello:

It is a very sweet rifle!
Only 2 defining forces sacrificed themselves for you:
The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

My rock,
He trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.

Loose the 30rd make and use a 10rd, or even a 5

5 & 10 round magazines are the same size.  One is pinned.

I have 10 round mags for both ar15 and 10.
There smaller,and when I carry with a normal rifle sling I don't have a mag stabing me in the back.
I don't need more than ten rounds ,extra weight.
I bought mine years ago ,way before this stupid new law.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

10 rnd levels off better prone as well. I'd only run 30s when running my chest rig for CQB/PD stuff.
