I haven't seen anything lighter than the original foregrip by the way, on going light...with a heavy barrel heheh. I think you saved a few ounces with the scope mount compared to mine

It is heavy but Im not too worried about it. Im very happy with how it all came together. I might trade out the scope mount one day but right now this one is working fine for me.

Nice! Weight can be a concern, but all depends on purpose.

Is that the CSS handguard?
