StrangerDanger Posted June 7, 2009 Share Posted June 7, 2009 (edited) I fired up my postal scale at work and got some fairly accurate weight readings (within a tenth of an ounce) for some of the parts. I found some of the weights to be surprising. Benelli M4 Factory Handguards: 5.0 Ounces Surefire M80 Rail System: 7.9 Ounces Surefire Ladder Rail: 0.4 Ounces Daniel Defense Picatinny Rail Sling Mount: 1.5 Ounces Magpul XTM Panel (two pieces): 0.25 Ounces Factory Top Rail with screws and washers: 1.59 Ounces I was expecting the factory handguards to weigh less, and for the M80 to weigh more stripped. Before adding a light or any other crap, my weight is 11.4 Ounces assembled. This doesn't take into account the fact that I removed the factory front sling mount. That's probably worth half an ounce. Deduct the weight of the removed factory handguards also and we're at 5.5 Ounces removed. So I've added a total of 5.9 Ounces so far. Almost the amount that Kip's Titanium tube will remove.
