Not as light, I have a 12 ga. CE with three weight 26" barrels that weigh 6.58 lbs per my digital scale.

The lightest I've seen is a 26-inch, DE-Grade, at 6 pounds 3 ounces. I have an early C-grade with 26-inch barrels at 6 pounds 5 ounces.

I don't have any Fox 12s that light, but I did just pick up a Scottish made 12 gauge double at a gun show. 30 1/4" inch barrels and only 6lb 9oz. The lightest 30" gun I've ever owned.

My 26 inch 12 gauge DS grade Lefever weighs in at 6lbs 5oz.In their 1902 New Lefever Hammerless catalog introducing the D.M.Lefever crossbolt gun they advertised 12 gauge guns as light as 5 1/2 lbs. 16 & 20 gauge guns as light as 5lbs.
