Time to lighten the load. I've been building 5.5 to 5.75 lb carbines since 2009 but the new crop of lighter components and significant R&D have allowed me take things up--or down--a couple notches. The best part is that I can still keep accuracy within my usual parameters for a particular caliber and build type.
Most of my new Hyper-Lites have been built as 5.56 NATO pistols, weighing in between 4.25 and 5.25 lbs, depending on options and additional components (such as the Law Tactical Gen 3M folder). But similarly-configured carbines are also available. Many of the lightened components can be applied to other chamberings as well as large frame guns. But as weight goes down, the cost goes up, so Hyper-Lites are not exactly budget priced. But if you want excellent performance in a feather-weight package, this is the place to get it.

Thanks to the very kind folks at Geissele Automatics, I'm able to offer the highly sought after 13.5" Geissele MK16 SMR rail in DDC finish on my custom rifles and uppers. However they are not for sale separately, so please do not ask.
