Weight of a VM68
 
Looked all around Google and vm68.com and couldn't find anything other than it weighing a "ton". 5 Pounds maybe?

Depends on how much stuff is on for accessories.
JUST the body- no internals and unmilled I'd say about 5lbs.

No barrel, all the guts and trigger group with a bottomline adaptor (compairing what I got) maybe 10 at lightest. No special grip- just the lonestar one.

These both are REGULAR bodies, not EXC or Magnum either. And all estimates.

A trigger shoe, 7oz tank 14inch CMI Barrel.

Wow!

To think I wanted to get two magnums so I could run around like John Woo.

Think I could get a machinist to make brackets that'll hold my arms up?

I was also wondering this myself, but I also wanted body dimensions. LxHxW on top of weight would be very appreciated

I was thinking about doing something similar and that may be out of the question if they really do weigh that much.

I had one with a Smart Parts barrel, Smart Parts expansion chamber, vertical 9oz tank with on/off valve, and back bottle with 20oz tank also with on/off. Empty, that weighed a hair over 10 lbs.

I just shipped one last week. The package came to 5 lbs and it was just the VM, no barrel or anything else.

It's absolutely doable. Just do a lot of arm exercises in your spair time. :D
I'd assume reloading could be a little iffy without an extra hand, and also keep in mind the added task of switching out CO2 tanks (or would you be doing remote?). I think the idea of running case anything is cool, but for paintball and reloading and all, other than small pistols it could be a bit of a PitA.

and yes, arm exercises are advised :D
