Not the most accurate scale in the world, but probably close enough +/- 4 oz.
SAI medium weight walnut stocks, Here are 3 different ones, all without the stock liner.
Here is a pic of the lightest of the 3 walnuts with the stock liner. Interestingly this stock is lighter then the AG composites carbon fiber and it's a medium weight. It's only about 2 ounces heavier with the liner.
