V7 Weapon Systems is continuing their crusade against unnecessary ounces and they have turned their attention toward a new rifle – the AR-10. Their new V7 Ultra-Light AR-10 Port Door weighs in at 9 grams which is about 45% lighter than a typical AR-10 port door. It is machined from 7075-T6 aluminum and hard anodized. It certainly doesn’t shed much weight on its own, but I suspect we will start to see more and more lightweight AR-10 parts from V7 that could be part of an overall weight reduction strategy.
