Specs on ur ar?
I dont have an accurate scale that goes over 8 lbs but it looks like 8 lbs and maybe a couple oz with the sling. The scope is a Bushnell Trophy XLT 1-4x24 30mm tube and weighs 16.2 oz + the caps. The mount is a one piece aluminum with integral 4 screw rings. Brand is not on the outside and I am not taking it off. It is not flimsy. The rifle is a DPMS A4 with the front sight removed and low mount gas block installed. 2k+ rounds mixed military, commercial 223, reloads on military cases and about 60 rounds of Wolf with no failures.

No its a valid question, I haven't weighed my ars in a while. I'll post some numbers when I clean them, prolly this weekend. I do have a sneaky suspicion my pistol weighs the most ......
It's all good... Camouflage and Toe, ain't nothing wrong with that!

I look at the lube in the Miad as additional insurance. Bottle was free from a coworker and it contains about $.25 worth of lube(about 4-5 servings). Or I could've spent $500-1000 more on a proprietary piston upper that has yet to be proven more reliable. Simple economics.

Ya, the extra lube >>> 1 extra round! smart choice. I may have to steal that idea from you.

Here are some more ARs with accurate weights...

AR #1

BCM 16" LW midlength upper with BCM M16 BCG, Gunfighter Mod 4 charging handle, MBUS Gen 2 rear sight and MOE handguards/pistol grip with IWC QD mount ---- 4lbs, 2.6oz

Valkyrie lower with DD LPK, BCM receiver extension kit, H buffer and CTR stock ---- 2lbs 3.7oz

4lbs, 2.6oz + 2lbs 3.7oz = 6lb 6.3oz basic rifle


AR #2
Daniel Defense 16" LW midlength upper with DD M16 BCG, Gunfighter Mod 4 charging handle, MBUS Gen 2 rear sight and MOE handguards/pistol grip with IWC QD mount ---- 4lbs, 0.6oz

S&W M&P15 lower with DD LPK, BCM receiver extension kit, H buffer and CTR stock ---- 2lbs 3.7oz

4lbs, 0.6oz + 2lbs 3.7oz = 6lb 4.3oz basic rifle
