Haha. I'm 6'4" 210. I bench 320 and when I was going through post I did 82 push ups in a minute. I'm not saying I cant handle it. In fact i like the weight to absorb recoil. Just compared to my old dpms and the rra we have at work its a lot heavier. I think the weight is on the big bulky forearm.

This one weighs in at 7.25# with optics 14.7" lw. I will weigh the rest of them in the morning.
Cool, but you need a glove on the forearm.I know, I have shot those types fast for minutes. The heat goes to your hand. Nice looking though.

Yes it will get hot after 2-3 30 rd Mag dumps and does require something on your hands. I say just don't do Mag dumps with it, that fixes the problem . My troy hand guards get hotter quicker than this one. I think there not as open and hold the heat a bit more. This one has a little more breathing room.
