Weight of rem 700 Action

Can anyone tell me the weight of a Remington 700 Action (Short and long actions), include trigger and mag if in the weight if possible please.

I am trying to get an idea of how heavy I can go with the barrell for a custom rifle as I want the all up weight to be around 9lbs

Cheers, Steve

    S/A BDL 2lb 4oz
    L/A Bdl 2lb 7oz

    The following weights of full actions (bolt, guard screws, trigger guard magazine liner, trigger assembly, recoil lugs, follower and spring) - everything except the barrel, stock, scope and mounts

    It looks like I have got a Sako TRG- S donor rifle with a M995 action and fibreglass stock.

    Should be a good start for my 7mm-rum [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
