    Hi, I bought a used baer monolith used a couple months back. And I'm just now wondering if is heavyweight or not. I dont have anything to compare it to. So whats the difference for the added weight and how can I tell?

    That's not a heavyweight.

    The line on the dustcover on yours is scalloped in front of the triggerguard, it's straight on the heavies.
