Default Addax GPU weight

Hello Addax,

I'm hoping to put together a really lightweight build, so how much does a GPU weigh? I've found some regular gas uppers as light as about 4.5lbs how would a GPU compare?

From looking at your site it seems that the "Combat Carbine-Lite rail" or the "Standard Carbine" model would be the lightest... is this correct?

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

The entire PWS Gas Piston System only adds approx. 4 ounces of weight compared to a regular AR15 Front Sight Post and Carbine Gas Tube.

A regular AR Front Sight Post with Carbine gas tube weighs approx. 5.6 ounces.

The PWS Gas Piston System (Gas Block, Piston Tube, Piston and Op-rod) weighs 9.6 ounces.

Thanks,
Chris

Yes you will have to remove the original front sight post. It will be replaced by a gas block with a rail on it and then you can mount any type of sight you want(flip up ,fixed or nothing).
