Yes, on second look, it does look like a standard weight. These were always my favorite, (I've owned a few dozen 1700 series rifles over the years) so if they're bringing them back, that would be nice. Still, it would/should weigh more than 6.40#,unless it's balsa wood light walnut.
In years gone by, I wrote to them about no longer having standard weight barrels in the line up. They claimed no demand.
