this has always kinda been a "catch 22."
if weight is going to be an issue (i.e. humping 50 miles with a 50 pound pack), then you will probably NEED the strongest, most durable rifle parts anyway. if you don't NEED the most durable rifle parts, then you really don't NEED the very few ounces of weight it will save you.
Standard receivers are light 'nuff and strong 'nuff. 'nuff said.
