What’s the difference between the GSG 522 and the GSG 522 lightweight version?

I’m trying to get the exact weights of each type of gun. However, the weight listed on the american tactical website shows a shipping weight of 9.1lbs and 6lbs for the lightweight version.

These weights include the box, manuals and tools it comes with and not the actual weight of the gun.

The main difference between the two is the receiver on the lightweight is made from plastic and the receiver on the standard weight is made from metal.

Everything else on the guns is the same.

The lightweight is typically less expensive and great for the ladies as it weighs less and their lady arms can hand it better all the way around.
