titles says discussion :) im crurious if anyone knows the actual weight of noveskes SWS quadrail... i havnt been able to find any numbers...

i would assume the quadrail is heavyer... but dang thats not a lot of metal between the rails... maybe its close to the same?

let me know what you know :) (not think lol)

awesome chart! thanks!

looks like the SWS is 15.20 on a 12in rail...

and the troy trx extream is 9.93 on a 11in rail...
and 11.43 on a 13 in rail...

3 oz difference in the 12vs13in...
5 oz difference in the 11vs13in...


thats exactly what i needed! thanks so much for your help :)

The next big jump down in weight would be going to a carbon fiber handguard system, like the Lancer (which still hasn't hit the market; they announced it at SHOT early this year).
