    I really like this upper, but are you sure it's a "lightweight" barrel? It appears to be full .750" diameter from muzzle to neck - "bull" profile.

    It might not be lightweight by todays standards but it is for a CHF barrel.

    Edit: It's not a full bull barrel.
    Quote:
    This proprietary lightweight profile is the perfect compromise between thicker barrels and "pencil barrels". It's stout enough to instill confidence, but light enough to give your rifle the perfect balance. The Hammer Forge process gives the barrel a stronger crystalline structure, which increases rigidity of the barrel. The increased strength of this CHF lightweight barrel will allow more accurate shot groups, even when the barrel heats up.

    Gotcha, it looks like a "government profile" barrel.

    I was gonna say, "Those Belgians must be awfully strong!"
