Exactly, just a tad heavier!

I just weighed my 84BB loaded and it is 2 oz. under 2lbs. The wife's LCP loaded is just under one pound at 15.2 oz.

Am I correct to guess that's the Walther with the suppressor? And what brand is it...I'm mostly familiar with AAC.

You are correct. I am not sure on the brand. It is not my suppressor, it's a friends that went shooting with me. I really do want one though, lots of fun to shoot through just too expensive for me right now.

Yeah the cost is definitely not budget-savvy, but you should check out their website, pretty cool stuff to buy and read. Advanced Armament Corp

It was a good looking gun. However it was a POS, I traded it after about putting 600 rounds through it and 3 trips to Taurus. The magazine would fall out for no reason, FTE and FTF was very common even with different ammo. I hated it. Trades it in on my first AR-15 and could not be happier. If I purchased another 1911, or just about any other semi auto, it would not be a Taurus.
