    I wanted to ask the owners of the midlength, M-4, and light weight ar15's. What is the weight of your gun unloaded?
    Thanks.

    I have a mid-length A2 and mine weighs 7.5 pounds. If they made the mid-length with the lightweight barrel, I'd jump on it in a heartbeat.

    Thanks, I really wish they made a lightweight midlength too. I really like the midlength but wish it was a little lighter.

    I own a midlength from Del Ton as well.

    Not a hiccup in 1000 or so rounds of steel cased ammo.

    And yes, the only thing i'd change on the gun is the barrel. It's a thick barrel. If they had a skinny barrel I would have been all over it.

    It ain't bad and balances fine with the HBAR. You'll be happy with it.

    my midlength balances quite well. Unloaded, I'd say it weighs about seven pounds or so. Not a big deal to me.

    I have a mid-length with an A2 upper. It is a little muzzle heavy when its empty but I think it is pretty well balanced when you stick a loaded magazine in it. I don't know about everybody else but I have never been able to hit anything with an unloaded gun weather it is muzzle heavy or not.
