Depends on the chair any any extras on the chair. Each person's set up will weigh a different amount.

The one I just got goes a bit over 400 pounds,, the one I bought used a few years ago and subsequently scrapped weighed a touch under 250. As you can see,, there is no answer to your question without your being more specific.
