    As mentioned on the video that rifle setup weighs in at 28 lbs. with it's 50 round mag.

    My lightweight AR weighs in at 8.4 lbs with a loaded 30 round magazine. I built it around a Mag Tactical Ultra-Lightweight Magnesium Lower. In an effort to further lighten my 5.56 I switched to a 4.3 oz Holosun HS403B red-dot on a quick release mount, went with a Vickers sling on quick release swivels, and a set of steel flip up sights. It's really all that's needed.

    With plenty of extra rails I can add items using quick release mounts when needed.

    Rail system serves a purpose. It is necessary in today's battle field. It allows the tools that serve the mission to be used. Not hang everything in the tool box on it at once. His comments about the gas piston were misleading and skipped right over why the DI system is used. Both are effective both have advantages and disadvantages.

    Take your pick, 7.62 or 5.56. I got them both.

    The Reddot M68 was a slam dunk. With only a bit of training in it's use hits on multiple targets went up 30%. case was closed iron sights were not number one. Proper reddot was a force multiplier . Hard for some to except but it proved so good that they became a 100% issue. And the modern ACOG has proven to be even better at long range. Iron sights are last resort.

    In Basic in 1968 there were only irons.
    And with the M14 we shot, and qualified, on targets that ranged from 25 to 500 meters. I could repeatedly hit a man sized target at 500 meters.
    I qualified Expert.
    When we transitioned to the M16, the range dropped to 300 meters. I found the front sight to difficult to adjust, and qualified with an unzeroed rifle. I missed Expert by one target, made Sharpshooter instead.

    Today I have several scoped rifles, but my fighting rifles wear irons. AK, M1, M1A, Mauser K98k, Springfield M1903A3, Mosin Nagant.
