I wanted a short, but legal of course, 'ultra-light', this comes in, iirc, about 4.5# loaded and ready:
Std carbine action (some sensible mods, nothing that makes it lighter)
Bobbed carbine barrel to 16.25", no sights
An old Weaver V22 7/8" tube scope (prev had on the D4), really light
And the trick pony, the back end only of the take down stock. The std carbine screws right on. It kinda has that old, was it 'Papoose' look?
This thing almost levitates and if ya separate the stock from barreled action it fits in 'short stuff'. I think the easy one screw likely beats the take down in futzin.

So how do you keep the pins in when you break it down? Scotch tape? Especially that little bugger that holds the mag release and the bolt lock! I hate that one the most!

But it sounds totally papoose. Also a little AR 7.

On another not S&P now has the backpacker stock in FDE too!

Mine is the black action so just a square of black plastic elec. tape at each pin. Id get the upsize pins but kinda like the easy tear-down.
It is totally user friendly for me at 6'1" x 200# with fairly long arms, tuck it in tight and close and pop it.
