The AR was designed to be a lightweight rifle, so why does mine weigh as much as an M1 Garand?

Horrible weight gain seems to be contagious and something all of my ARs and I share. Deciding it was easier to put my AR on a diet than myself, I set out to try and build the lightest, custom AR I could while avoiding the use of polymer or carbon fiber (for the most part) and maintaining all of the rifle’s functionality. I also opted to keep the maximum versatility in terms of mounting accessories and optics.
