My wife’s bcm build is lighter or equivalent to my Larue upper.. food for thought 

Yea I've already been researching some things.  It looks like I'll save about a pound with a different stock, handguard, and optic.  I also might just do a "pistol" build, that should be light enough.

That rifle looks about perfect. Can’t be over what? 8lbs?

Plus, I’d rather have an extra pound or so and a more capable rifle than a lighter-weight AR pistol with a shorter barrel and associated degradation in terminal ballistics.

What exactly is “light enough” in your opinion and why do you need it so light?

Are you planning on carrying it for days through mountainaous terrain? 

Is it too heavy to bring to the range in your car?

Is it too heavy to shoulder and shoot without using a bench?

You reach a point of diminishing returns when shaving weight on a rifle. A very light rifle is more fatiguing to shoot fast and accurate than a slightly heavier rifle is to carry.

You bring up a lot of good points, and I think it's just a form of Male Insanity Syndrome....but with guns lol. For the uninformed: 

The belief that there is a more compatible or desirable woman than one's present girlfriend. 
 
It's been a while since I've shot this rifle.  I'll have to get some range time behind it before making any rash decisions.

How does she shoot it upside down like that?

And without a clip.
