Building a Del-Ton 20inch

Want to build a del ton 20inch A3. I have an M1a and I love it but it's so damn heavy (walnut, 22inch). My Ar will be a go to rifle for plinking and 3 gun. I don't like the 16inch's weight being centered rearward (shot a postal inspectors M4 with acog). 20 inch seems to be the fix for that. However, looking at Del-tons site, the 20 inch rifle says it weighs 9 pounds! Thats the same as my M1a almost.

If I get the gov profile barrel will it reduce wieght much from the HBAR? Will accuracy be effected much?

Any kit building tips?

Looking to save weight but still have decent accuracy

Thanks for your time,
