    Right now I have my PFS as light as it'll go, the screw in weight has been removed. Has anyone tried hogging any of the metal out to lighten it, and if so, was there any considerable weight loss? I'd like to loose a few ounces from mine, but just doing a rough guesstimate, I don't think I can get any more than a few tenths of an ounce by milling away what I could without structurally weakening it, since there really isn't that much there to begin with, and since most everything is already aluminum, I can't really replace anything w/ a lighter metal.

    Just thinking out loud...

    skeet_man,

    Find the thinest pad/plate you can. You don't need the pad for recoil purposes and they can be quite heavy for their size.
