Mine was 194 with a 17 back weight 

It's possible, Also some could have a 19 gram back weight as well.

197-199g without the adapter seems to be pretty "standard" with most falling in the 198g range. You can also get lighter ones around 192-193g from guys like Will Peoples. 

EDIT: Likely wrong information corrected by @ignitewvu below.

That's incorrect, They are usually around 193-194 if built with a standard Length TM Shaft.

Typically the back weight is 17 grams.

 

I have hotmelted a BUNCH and all were 193-194grams prior to hotmelt.

 

Almost everyone I have hotmelted felt the head performed way better in the 198-200Gram Range especially is you prefer 45" or slightly shorter.

Interesting, I wonder if that means that most of the tour issue heads that make it to eBay have already been hotmelted up to that 198g range then.
