    Mine is 5lb 3oz bare. 6lb 10oz with a Bushnell 6500 2.5-16x42 scope ( scope is nearly 20oz by itself ).
    Mine has carbon stock (16oz) light weight firing pin and shroud, fluted bolt and barrel, talley one piece rings. I have all the weight savings written down some where if you are interested.

    How light are yours compared to a factory plastic one?

    My rifle came with an after market limbsaver on it. From memory I saved 1.5lb. The older factory plastic stock is stupidly heavy.

    My Stugs (with Limbsaver ) have been around 500 grams, the old factory plastic ones are 1025 ish, the later ones are 750-775 IIRC

    Are you guys running the factory pencil thin barrel or have you gone aftermarket barrels? Thinking of going down this path potentially after a stug stock...

    I'm running the factory magnum barrel on my 7SAUM, but it has been fluted.
