What is the weight of the gun and the build time on the carbon fiber gun body before screwing it all together?
fully equipped gun weight 3.6 kg. Usually it's around 3.4 but small shaft overhang caused wood body to be longer and some lead ballast was needed.

It's hard to say about time in working hours but whole process takes almost three weeks because epoxy need some time to cure, carbon wrapping was made in 4 steps...

Thanks for the info. Great job in such a short time, a gun like that would take me forever to obtain that standard of fit and finish. In terms of travel do you recommend the gun being transported all rigged up or the band system removed so that the pulley block does not bang or rub against the stock?
