Reason for the CA M24's impressive weight (and what also makes it very quiet to shoot, all sound and vibration is kept within the gun)is in the rifle itself, it has a SOLID composite stock (unsure the material) and the receiver/outer barrel is solid cast metal, minimum 1/8" thick, in places. Add on a decent sized scope, maybe a bipod............. mine is about 14lbs, and at one point I had my stock w/bipod in one hand and the barrel w/scope in the other, they balanced out pretty good. Always found it funny other complete rifles weighed as much as my stock alone.
