I agree, while I was concerned with weight, it pretty much trimmed itself up as I couldn't think of anything else I really need on here. My MK18 sports some of the heavier accessories as its a pig anyways.
I hadn't used an RMR on a rifle before and wasnt sure how it would fair. I did manage to get eh RMR mounted last week and I believe it will be the route I take. If it proves itself useful at the range I may even switch some other rifles over to the RMR. It only saved a few ounces over the H1/Geiselle setup so part of me says to jsut get a lighter H1 mount and keep the, what I beleive, more proven/reliable optic. Scalarworks has an absolute co-witness mount coming out soon that I will try with the H1.
My thoughts on BUIS is that if I have enough time to employ them Id have enough time to throw the lever on my RDS and remove it. Otherwise, Im using the RDS window as a crude aiming device. I happened to pick up a KDG sidleock mount for my SCAR optic and its about the fastest on/off I have seen for a QD mount. I may switch over to those if the return to zero proves to be accurate and repeatable which from what Ive seen, they will.
I currently have 3 ARs
The lightweight is definitely the lightest, despite being the longest. that pencil barrel does the trick.
honestly, it almost seems as if the V7s and the MK18 are a complete crapshoot with weight with my set-ups. the extra inch+ on the V7s but the lighter rail almost balances out to the MK18's shorter, brick of a rail and bbl.
I tossed the Romeo4m on the V7SLW to keep it light. I put the Aimpoint Pro on the V7S. of course the suppressor I have makes the V7s pretty heavy, too.
I tried to weigh them today, but I don't have a pound-scale that light - just the bathroom scale. but I discovered it's dead. I'll have to figure out another way to actually get weights of various parts and write down combinations to see what would potentially work the best.
I think, for grab-and-go, the V7S may be the winner for me, with the suppressor. but that V7SLW is sure a slick rifle. I'm debating pinning another suppressor attachment to it, if I can find someone locally who can do it.
I am short one optic for all my rifles as the Romeo5 went to my MPX. I really like the idea of the RMR now that you've brought it back up in my head. Do let me know how you like it in action!
Off topic, Those are awesome pictures! Which camera did you use? Btw, gun is sweet too.

Either a Nikon D3 or Sony A6300, don't recall which. On the same topic, don't hung up on the camera...the lenses are what a make a difference,
people don't believe me when I tell them that haha. I shoot better with my D90 and high end glass than when I use my wifes more expensive camera and kit lenses.
Great pictures, that may be the perfect rifle
