As configured it's 12.6 lbs with an unloaded 25 rd mag inserted and 14.4 loaded with 168g rounds.
The longer the stock is extended the more pronounced the weight is, but it's not bad overall. With the stock collapsed all the way, the majority of the weight seems to be over the pistol grip, which is merciful on the support hand. The farther the stock is expanded the more the burden shifts away from the body. I'm 6'2 and 220 (not fat), so it's not too bad, but if I were a smaller guy I can see where holding this thing would be miserable.
