    I like my AR though its on the heavy side. Its an anti-tacticool A2 with an A2 buttstock and 16" HBAR. Anyways, while waiting for a shooting lane to open, I looked at a DPMS M4Gery. That thing was easily 2lbs lighter than mine.

    So...I know now that I have to get a Del-Ton lightweight upper and collapsible stock.:evil:

    At least selling my HBAR and buttstock will save on the costs.

    There are WAY too many HBAR and mid-weights out there. Not enough Gov't profile barrels.

    I'm having ADCO turn down the profile on my 18" SPR barrel with RLGS...will probably take off a 1/2 lb or more.

    How much does it cost to have the barrel turned down to Gov't profile and then have it reparkerized?

    I am not a big fan of HBARs.

    My first AR was a Colt HBAR, I really, really wish I had gotten the standard weight rifle. I would replace the barrel but the lower is marked HBAR.

    i really never liked hbar barrels. its not that they dont have a purpose, i just dont have a need for one.

    they are generally a little more accurate if shooting from a bench, but if your going to be shooting benchrest why not just go ahead and get the .920 profile.

    the 20" hbars are dreadfully heavy. the 16's are not as bad i suppose. there is actually only about 6-8oz diference in those, but probably over a pound when talking about 20" models.
