I'm new to the world of airsoft (and guns in general), but wouldn't you prefer a lighter gun? It must have a certain weight of course... but in general a lighter gun is better, isn't it? for a long day of mil-sim, more weight = more energy needed to carry. 400g may be a small amount, but 400g on the gun + 400 there + 800 here + 200 over there... that equals many kg overall! for a 10 walk this may not change much, but for many hours...
It's about realism. If lightness is your concern, then go and buy 100% plastic weapons. I have downgraded full metal guns to plastic for lightness in some games but a heavy loadout is part of the milsim experience. Heavier parts also usually show more durability and quality overall.
