    According to Lilja, my stainless steel barrel weigh around 9.5 to 10lbs with 1.35" full barrel all the way to 36". The cal. is 338. Yours would probably around 5-6lbs. Someone else might give your more specific weight.

    I'm not sure if the blue and the SS are similar weight of the same size???

    pacnor's web site has a weight estimating calculator for custom contours. I can not attest to it's accuracy but should give you an Idea.
