Super-light connectors still meet mil standards
The connector socket in the picture weighs in at a mere five grams. Devised by Nicomatic, it owes its light weight primarily to the fact that it is made from aluminum. It has a shiny surface thanks to a nickel surface coating. The example in the photo is a custom version of the company’s DMM series Micro D-mix connectors which all meet Mil-dtl-83513g standards.
