    What would the lightest weight wood suitable to make a forend out of be?

    Anyone ever make a forend out of something like balsa, then do a carbon fiber wrap?

    Looking to loose some weight out of the front of a gun or two, and swapping forends would be cheaper/easier than expensive barrel work.
