The thing that holds the hamster and ball jointed posts weighs half a pound.

Believe it or not, the gubbins that links the barrel support, including the support and the horrible shroud weighs nearly half a pound!

There will be a slight loss in that the hamster will only adjust up and down due to fixed posts.

I reckon the replacement parts might weigh less than a pound.

Happy days
No doubt a good approach but, looking at some of the shooters I rather fancy they should start with themselves before the gun
