Im in at around 2 punds with my S-FSP.

Id suggest not worrying so much about weight. Anything custom milled is gonna be considerably lighter than a stock unmilled, half milled, or full milled AKA body.

milling is just half the battle, you setup can make a difference as well... the asa setup and tank can make the biggest difference in weight distribution... also hopper...

intimidator - So....lol

opio - So true, it took me a while to find an ASA setup that worked well for me. Luckily the critical ASA i use now sticks out far enough with my 45/45 that its comfortable to use.

00-04 Unmilled, Half milled and Full milled are 3lbs stock.

My Tarantula with every milling is just barely over 2 lbs. I also use internal LPR and stock Valve cap. Short Sidewinder extension.

Almost exact 3 lbs. well hall milled barely take anything off. And I actually don't think they made any full milled '04s lol.... but if they did, it wouldn't make any difference anyway.

The cuts on stock AKA bodies dont really remove much weight at all which is why i can see where phat is coming from. They will all weigh pretty close to the same thing.

My halfmill'd 03 with sidewinder, bp feedneck, cp rail and on/off, dye sticky and battery, so basically field ready but without a barrel, was weighting in at 3lbs1/3 exactly.

Those weights does NOT include barrel, battery, rail, on/off. just the gun and stock grip.

My featherlite is in the mid 2lbs range. The nice thing is though that even heavier Vikings are managable due to the fact that they're incredibly well balanced with tanks and hoppers on them.

If I remember right, Annie was 2 pounds 5 ounces with everything minus a tank and hopper (Field ready configuration). Of course that was with a Stiffi 14", Dye 3 Sticki Grips, 05 System X on/Off, and a Duracell 9 volt. It was usually run with a 45/4500 and a 12 volt revvy. I could make it lighter with one of the newer on/off systems but I don't play anymore so why bother?

There was only 1 full mill '04. Nice anno, but the pics of it are down. A pretty brick, but still a brick.
