    * A 9.16 pound feather (8.34 without the bipod)

    A recce-inspired build or an MD-compliant build, you decide

    The heart of the build is the barrel, a 16in Faxon Fluted HBAR for a balance of ~~MD compliance~~ recce homage and weight reduction

    Midlength gas with a Superlative Arms adjustable gas block, KynShot hydraulic buffer, Tubb Speedlock recoil spring, Surefire Warcomp, and over 8 pounds of gun make shooting pleasant and controllable

    Midwest Industries Slimline 15in Handguard is about the lightest non-CF handguard I can find that retains full length picatinny at 12oclock because I want my picatinny

    A chunky Vltor IMOD stock to balance the weight a bit, and Magpul K2 because modern grip angles

    Repitilia AUS scope mount is durable yet light, to securely hold my budget Konus Event 1-10x LPVO

    Magpul MBUS pro offset sights because I’m a fudd who wants backup irons

    Magpul 933 Mlok Bipod with an American Defense QD mount

    And to tie it all off, a Geissele SD-E

    Without the bipod, point of balance is very handily located at the front takedown pin, making the gun easy to manipulate and shoot offhand despite the weight

    With the bipod attached, the point of balance shifts forward 1.5in which makes it slightly less handy, but steadier to aim off hand
