M14 stock weights

So I was pm'ing a fellow member and we were discussing the weights of some stocks, and I decided to weigh some of mine and compare the weights, I thought this might be a good reference thread for others, so if you have a stock you want to add go ahead.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when you weigh your stock.
1) weigh the stock stripped of the butt pad and sling swivels.
2) I left the stock liner in the wood stock.


AG Composites carbon fiber:





SAI/USGI fiberglass:






SAI Composite:

Vltor with 2 different butt stocks:






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.

Tony, thanks, I moved everything over to your thread. My thread is redundant and I should have the mods delete.
