Ultra Light

Latest project, Ultra Light AR15

The idea was to build the lightest AR I could, a rifle that would be comfortable to carry around all day.
Yes it's a bit "Plain Jane"but cool gadgets would have defeated the goal

The target was to get under 6 lbs. it has a Carbon Fiber lower, a slick side original M16 upper*, ultra light Model 1 barrel, and an Ace butt stock. 5.5 lbs empty

*found if the chamber is clean & ammo of good quality you don't need the FA.
I picked up parts as I found them, in pre Barky Bahama times the cost of everything was under $600
