The one I had weighed about 2.3 lbs stock. Very light, and one of the lightest all-metal semis.
The gas channel from the rear ASA to the valve is very well machined. No hoses, or fittings. The asa itself seals the connection.

The only issue I've seen is bolt stripping. I'm not sure if the aluminium is weak, or simply that the light weight meant not enough threads to prevent stripping, but its something you have to be careful with.

I'd take it for $20 if I were you. It's a real nice semi, very reliable.

I've also heard that Brass Eagle Raptor barrels are the same, so aftermarket barrels should still be plentiful.

From what I've heard, they share a lot of the same internals as well.
