          The old ones actally have a void in them where the newer style are solid, were they all that way John as I know the ones on my A2's have voids?

            If your talking just the wood kickbacks. I just weighed a brand new right hand kickback. It weigh's in at almost 20 pounds. If your talking the entire kickback metak frame and all. That weighs in at 70 pounds. According to my computerized scale.

                The original wood kickbacks are not solid, they are assembled from many pieces of lumber, they do have airspace inside of them.

                The newer laminated kickbacks are solid and much heavier.

                Old school....metal kickbacks? the only metal ones I've seen are Brunswick armor plate and GSX.

                Hey but I learn something new every day.

                      Old school, gotcha.

                      Scott, my guess is about 100lbs, never picked one up, picked up plenty of the older ones.
