I sent them another email to check if they could make one of the ligher ones for a browning, and see what styles are available in the microlight. Thanks for the tip. I'm not sure why they didn't mention that on their first reply.

As for the other question, I might go with a mountain TI, I just wanted to price building one first to see if I could have a premium barrel at the same price.

Re: ultra light rifle stocks

Made myself a 23.5 oz carbon stock all in for my remmy and a 25oz carbon stock for an old sako. Weights are bedded, with but pad and studs.
One could go lighter but it would risk pressure puncture on the shell if one knocks it hard.

They replied and you are right, they can make a lighter stock. They said the mountain rifle stock in the microlight layup is the lightest they make. I have to call them and discuss it further. If I get the blank from them, I think my gunsmith will finish it cheaper.
