I have posted a picture similar to the one I am posting now. I have used stamped steel bits everywhere I could and I used the lightened No5 sear as well. It has the original bolt with the hollow in the  bolt handle, the trigger guard is stamped steel also. With a full magazine, brass oiler, and pull through in the buttstock, the rifle weighs 10 lbs exactly and the balance point is directly on the King Screw. (As shown here balanced on the end of a TV tray.)

Looks a nice rig, Goosic!
 
Never tried balancing one on the front action screw though!

If you were to hold the rifle with the King Screw resting in the palm of your hand,"as best as you could," that is the fulcrum point. The actual weight of the rifle is no longer felt. Like wielding an extremely well balanced Calvary Sword...
