What are some of the lightest AR15? I'm still on the waiting list for a HK P30 but I'm trying to decide If a 5.56 would be better to get next.

I believe a M16A1 at 6 lbs is about as light as you are going to get.

That Daniel Defense M4 Carbine V4 LW is Impressive 6 lb 2.1 oz No sights. 1:7 twist As a AR neophyte what is better a higher twist or lower twist. this refers to the rifiling of the barrel right? Also what weight ammo is ideal?

If you keep it KISS with a LW profile barrel and M4 style stock the low 6lb range is easy to achieve.
