    I’m targeting the synthetic soft touch group, for comparisons sake.

    Fully dressed with scope, moderator, and I’m sure most have installed a front pic rail under the stock. I’m trying to plan out my scope of choice, eventually, and really trying to keep the weight down. Today I went to WM and bought a cheap 1” tube Centerpoint scope for two reasons: one, it’ll give me an idea of what the gun weighs in at with a somewhat light scope, and two I just want to finally shoot this gun since I took ownership a bit over a month ago, lol. 

    So, right now, with 1.26 lb scope, rings, pic rail at forearm, 3 empty mags attached to the scope rail, and a JSAR shroud band I’m exactly at 9 lbs. Eventually I’m going to try and find a permanent scope that’s at around 18 oz to help shave some more weight, and install lighter scope mounts.

    I haven't weighed mine (.25 MK1)… but really dig my Leupold VXII.  Depending on what specs you read, the scope adds a measly 8 to 11oz's.

    9lbs with an Aztec 5-25, Donny Sumo, 3 of Matt's mag holders(without mags) and an FX level. I do wish it was lighter, but it's a great gun.

    You'll start with 6 or 7lb gun.  Depending 22 or 25.The scopes can easily put 1.5-2 lbs on top.  Oregun says 8 -11 oz.  That's GREAT if it's all the scope you need for your type of shooting….

    I have yet to find anything lower than 18 oz, that comes in a variable power, 30mm tube, side focus, and 50mm objective, and that’s a 3-12 discovery. 

    8-11 ounces??!! Are those one of those fixed 4 power scopes that come with a daisy gun? That’s got a 7/8” tube from one end to the other? With my aging eyes I can’t do 2-7 x32 or 3-9 x 32 in 1” tubes anymore. To hard to see. About the only way I’d even consider a scope of those sizes is if I were to actually go on a deep woods, back pack hunt for trophy game. 

    @ Farrah, which scope in the discovery line up did you choose again? I’m trying to find your post when you were telling all about your scope and can’t find it.

    im finding that all illuminated reticle scopes are the ones that carry the excess weight. Same with the levels of variable power. So, my plan is to stick with non illuminated, variable up to 18 power max, must have locking turrets, 44 to 0mm objective and 30mm tube.

    There's a slight bounce to it when it shoots, so I don't know if I would want it lighter. I may try something like a red dot sight just to try it in a lighter configuration.

    For comparisons sake, to keep things like for like, let me know all, of your WC is of the compact version. When you throw a weight out, and it comes out less than mine and you’ve got a huge illuminated reticle scope on it, you probably have the compact version of the WC, but that’s just an assumption on my end.

     

    Anthony, whats your gun weighing in at minus the bipod and the laser flashlight? Also, which Discovery scope are you running on yours?

    Bigragu, I no this is not totally an apples for apples comparison, but it's some feedback.

    These days i want my rifles to be as light as possible for woods walks, with a sling.

    I have the WC gen1 25 Cal with the factory single extension moderator. I like the Leupold 1.5-5×20 scope. 11oz including the rings. The stock mounted tripple mag holder, and a walnut cheek piece. 8lbs, 3oz

    However, mine is the walnut stock.

    Great bullpups!!!

    Oh, I should mention that I have the three magazine, stock mounted holder on it, which adds almost 3 ounces all loaded up.

     

    Have fun, Scott

    Augie, after messing with that behemoth of a bullpup (.30 Bully) your Wc fully "dressed"  should feel as light as a feather. No ?

    Neomorphy, 

    i just want to ask, out of this thread topic. 

    Is the mk2 0.22 of yours has external regulator adjustment?

     

    thanks!
