Mine too, 10lbs + and climbing! But thats my precision rig anyway, not my fun gun. Heck I'm even looking to swap barrels to a 24 inch bull for lonnngggggg range shooting, talk about gonna get heavy! lolMy AR is a 20" heavy profile (not bull but heavy) barrel with a fixed stock, very different animal. If you're going light weight, or live in CA go SU-16. For anything else look at an AR.
