    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    If you want to get a look at and the feel of a JP Light Wt. rifle, you can at Louisiana Gun. They have one in stock. They are at 12728 Jefferson Hwy. BR

    Once the lower is available the WWSD 2020 project is using a polymer lower that’s very light with a pencil barrel.

    I think KE Arms will be the manufacturer of the lower. More information about the WWSD 2020 project you can watch videos on YouTube from InRangeTV or go to Brownells for more information.

    I’m not endorsing it. Hell it doesn’t even yet but it’s a lower cost option that is designed from the ground up for low weight reliability. They’re saying the lowers will begin shipping next month.

    BCM has a 14.5" upper that would come in at just under six pounds (plus optic) as a complete rifle. Unfortunately, the complete upper runs around $1K by the time you add BCG and charging handle, etc.

    I wish that I had bought one of the Robar polymer ARs when they were still available.

    Get rid of the junk (heavy accessories) and back to the basics. 16" (or less with a stamp) pencil barrel with iron sights, or lightest optic available if you absolutely have to have one. Plain handguard with no or one small rail for a light which is mounted only when needed. Go to 10 round magazines for her (or only partly load your 30-rounders). Don't know if a plain buttstock is lighter than the adjustable butt - research it.

    As a sidetrack - My wife likes my 5.2 lb (5.8 lb loaded) M1 Carbine much better than any of the ARs for our farm use because of the weight and simplicity. At 2 MOA with iron sights, it's perfect for her out to 150 yds or so.

    "Incrementalism" is the weapon used by anti-gun forces to destroy the second amendment.
    "Compromise" is a negotiation term that can only be used one time - when you compromise a compromise, you have lost the entire issue.
