Default Weight of SB1 vs SB2?

Anyone compared the weight of the frames between SB1 and SB2? I'm putting together a "brush gun" project and while I expect there to be very little difference, I'm curious as to which is heavier since they are made of slightly different metals.

I'm talking just the frame/receiver - all else being equal. i can set this up with either but don't have a scale to measure the difference. I have a handigrip stock for it. Getting a barrel cut down. May even order a titanium stock bolt to save maybe half an ounce or so. Mostly just for fun but trying to make a featherweight back country hunting option for deer and turkey

Frame weights are in the FAQs, they're almost identical with SB2 weighing slightly less due to the skeletonized tang, total rifle weight will be dependent on the choice of barrel, 20" Superlights and vintage H&R Inc barrels being the lightest with their slim profile. Vintage H&R Arms and H&R Inc cast iron frames may be lighter than SB1/SB2 as well.
