I dont remember the hard facts. What I do remember is that it was 16# scoped.
Scope was NF NXS 50mm, rings were badger, base was 1 piece steel. With the same profile barrel at 27" it totaled 16#.
After I got it back the new barrel was the same profile yet 28" and I installed a 2 piece base and NF UL rings. The rifle now is around 12# scoped.
So to answer your question semi accurately I saved about 3.5 pounds on the barrel.
