One common topic of discussion relating to AR-15s is weight.
Frequently, someone will want to know what a certain accessory will weigh, or how much difference there is between a heavy barrel and a light barrel, and so on.
I have created a very simple calculator – with links to resources from other websites – that will assist those who are looking for the total weight of their weapon. I cannot guarantee that it will be perfectly accurate, given variables relating to manufacturing processes and scale calibration, but it should provide a fairly accurate weight assessment.
It is a work in progress, so please excuse the rather boring appearance for now. More data will be added to the vuurwapenblog.com “Stock and Optic Weights” page soon.
I would like to thank 03designgroup.com (USMC03) and tacticalyellowvisor.net (rob_s) for allowing me to reference the data they have painstakingly compiled over the past few years.
