    Default Putting the MR762 on a diet

    I recently acquired a MR762A1 and I’m wondering what others have done to successfully lighten the front end. I have seen references to barrel reprofiling and dimpling as well as switching hand guards. Ideally, I’d like to keep the HK hand guards. So, what’s the best way to drop some weight without shortening the barrel or losing accuracy? What about fluting?

    I believe in fattening the pig up as well!!!!

    Don't re-profile the barrel....you will destroy the harmonics

    Uh oh. I haven’t even put my bipod and suppressor on yet!

    It’s a fantastic rifle but it’s a beast. I’m no lightweight, but I don’t relish the thought of humping it through the deer woods, or worse yet, after elk, but bench shooting gets old fast.

    For hunting, put a slimline stock on it, get a era tac light weight mount, and swap to NX8 since you like Nightforce.....you will be amazed at the weight difference
