SR-22 Advice?
 
How can I make my SR-22 rifle lighter? Love the gun, but schlepping it around gets tiresome. Maybe replace the barrel and shroud?

Thanks in advance!

Barrel, hand guard and stock.

the barrel does weigh 2.9 lbs alone on the sr22. it is somewhere between the tapered 10/22 barrel and a bull barrel. it is .75" wide at 16.5" long i believe. other than being heavy, i actually had great accuracy with this barrel.

The chassis around the receiver actually does not weigh much, its that hand-guard that weighs so much.

By having a red dot instead of a scope, changing to a 12" dlask bull barrel (2.4lbs) and changing to a minimalist butt-stock (the basic butt-stock it had from ruger weighed only an once or 2 more so no big savings there) i was able to drop some weight and now enjoy the rifle more than ever. More than weight reduction, the shorter barrel really helped balance the rifle and that made a huge difference.
