Stock 2 for CO

Recommended Posts

Has anyone thought of a stock 2 for carry optics?

It seems too heavy to me.

 

I did change the grips to Henning aluminum grips  without changing optic it is just over 45.36 oz

Take the rear sight off and add optic is plus a couple of oz.  Base pads back to original and I think I am chasing 3 or 4 ounces still

 

Are there any thin grips that weigh less?  like a g10 grip

 

I am coming up about 4 oz too heavy.  Has anyone come up with a way to get it down a little.  Lim Pro will save 4 oz on stock and that might make it easier to make weight.  But I am looking for ideas you all may have

 

weight of eg grip = ?

That scale grip = ?

I will weigh the henning grip and the original grip tonight to see where we are with those

Search function broke... so sad!

 

 

(Joke...sort of)

 

 

My 9mm s2 with precision machine dovetail, vortex viper,  sanded wood grips w skate tape, taylor freelance mag extensions and grams follower w 11 coil spring (mags hold 23).

 

 fyi, My sights were within 0.3oz of the dovetail mount and optic.

Mine weighs 44 stock with sights and a mag with production basepad. I have thought about getting another top end, milling it up and seeing what kind of weight I could drop.

Read MemphisMechanic 's thread on opening the magwell.

 

Contact Joe at Patriot Defense about his light weight guiderod.

 

Use a jpoint optic.

 

Easy peasy.

 Huh, I wonder how much weight was removed in opening the magwell? Not a huge amount but enough to offset some CO goodies I bet!
