I believe Joel told me the stock weighed 3.4lbs. I don't know what the HS stock weighs (2.5-3lbs I'd guesse). The gun is just a bit barrel heavy. I'm hoping the stock will balance it better.
I certainly considered the wieght. There is a lot that can be done to this stock to make it lighter. I'm thinking the difference will be about half a pound. Hopefully just what the gun needs. We'll see.
