Re: lightest barrel

If some one is custom threading your brake you can go as light a barrel as you want\.

Re: lightest barrel

For a muzzle break I'm not sure if you want to go any smaller than a 1/2-28 thread. So this would be approximately 1/2" OD at the muzzle. Granted for larger calibers you generally run a 9/16-24 or a 5/8-24.
