MDWS 6mm Mongoose Premium Ranger Barrel, 416R Matte stainless, 20" 4-Groove Rifling, 1:8 Twist, Ranger Profile (.980, .785, .750GB, .715), Threaded 5/8-24, Rifle Length Gas.

Barrel Specs:
Profile: Ranger - .980, .785, .750GB, .715
Weight: ??


What is barrel weight?  Where does it balance on a lightweight upper build?  Is it more of a varmint style barrel configuration for heavy firing schedules at a p'dog shoot versus a more dynamic upper configuration (i.e. not a lot of 'hang weight' or 'nose heavy')?

TIA,
Sid

Sid - the Ranger Profile is between a SPR and lite-weight (i.e., M16A1) profile.  I'm sorry, don't have the actual weight of a stripped 20" 6mm pipe in my files.  I'd GUESS (SWAG) about 36-38 oz.  A design goal for the Ranger was to keep 18" barrels in .277 and larger bore at/under 32 oz.

Thank you RJ!  I was afraid it would be a bit heavy for me right now.  I'm trying to stay close to 2#'s with a slight chamber balance bias.

An 18" Wolverine, Mongoose, or Ocelot Ranger Profile pipe would be very close to 32 oz (+/- a pinch).  Obviously going to 20" increases total weight and  moves balance point forward.

A 16" 375AR Ranger barrel will be even lighter... 2" shorter and bigger hole in the middle.
