What are the average weights of these 4150 barrels?

18" Med con
16" Med con
16" Light weight
20" Light weight

18 and 16" will have mid-length gas systems
and the 20" will have rifle.

Just wondering how they balance and if they are too heavy for field carry.
My bolt action 223 is about 8lbs 2oz w/ optics +5 rds which feels too beefy lugging it around looking for coyotes. My goal is to build a mmg ar at 6-7lbs loaded with 20rd's and iron sights or is that un-realistic?
