    Very interesting that the MR762 barrel is that light given how heavy the rest of the gun is. Supposedly CSASS rifle is 8.7lbs, about a pound lighter than the MR762. I wonder if there were weight savings in other areas? (A stock MR762 with picattiny rail and no sights or magazine weighs about 9.6lbs, and the Geissele rail is actually heavier than the picattiny.)


    *(Or was that a typo on the MR762 barrel weight at 2lbs 5oz? The MR556 barrel is actually heavier?)
    The Geissele rail, while slightly heavier than the stock quad rail, provides quite a substantial amount of real estate for things like bipods, lasers, grips, clip on night vision, etc. I still stand by the statement that the G rail is the best upgrade for an MR 762

    The OP, quite understandably, wanted to lighten the front; switching to lighter buttstock will hardly help to achieve that aim ...
