Lightest NON-CF barrel available?

Hey all, looking at getting some smaller bore sizes for my gun and was wondering what is the lightest NON-carbon fibre barrel out there? or is the difference so small that it wont matter? I'm running an eclipse marker so I can just get shaft4 or lapco backs. But even those can run a pretty penny.

Not really worth the hassle IMO, just grab some Shaft4 backs and be happy IMO.

Any aluminum barrel is pretty light. Really simple tubular designs are lightest though. Just get whatever you can find used that seems nice enough in the bore size you want, IMO.

Stick with the shaft 4 and get it bored if you want more options.

Agreed. And for the price point they cant be beat. I plan to order the v3 eigen barrel kit for my 3.1 as soon as they become available again.

You don't have to buy the whole kit. You can get one complete barrel by itself for $39. They are extremely light!

Empire Resurrection. 5.0 ounces.


Inception Stella. 5.0 ounces.


Both are 14", and I used the .680 bore for each.

The last thing you should consider when buying a barrel is weight. Find your budget, then choose a bore size and length, then color/ looks. Weight is pointless.

The disruptive, Lurker and Stella barrels I heard were some of the quietest and lightest barrels. I personally own a disruptive barrel and choose it over any barrel.

Lurker barrels are excellent and very, very light. That's all I use on everything I own.

That's like 41% heavier than an eigenbarrel, they're nice but not particularly light
