Carl Quick's LiteWieght 2240

So for about the last 24 months, I've had her on a serious diet. Now I am happy to report that she lost nearly 13 ounces and is feeling so much better. And let me say one thing, when I pick her up with one hand now she is light as a feather. Well, almost a feather.

Things I have done so far:

OEM main tube was lightened by me.
Barrel is OEM and trimmed down by me.
Main tube plug is made of Delrin by me.
Gas cap is aluminum, comes from HPA and bored out by me.
Hammer is made from Delrin by me with a modified 1701P striker.
Valve is an aluminum Disco rear end with a brass Pro-Top by Anthony.
Trigger grip frame is aluminum by Bluefork Design and then hogged out by Gregg.
Front barrel band is aluminum, made by Anthony, drilled by Rich and milled by me.

Have been asked about this many times will put it on my site soon but for now.

How to mod tube bulk for power.

The Tube bulk cap Brian and Associates as well as others sell this as part of a two piece tube bulk powerlet eliminator.


Drill 1/4 inch hole all the way trough the cap.


drill 25/64ths hole about 1/4 inch into the rear portion of the cap.


Cut two or three treads from the cap.


Drill out extra material from the front of the cap for more charge volume.


Cap from the rear


Cap from the front


Now combine this modded cap with the mods already available for the valve body ie; porting, stem mods and a lighter spring for some decent power upgrades. If you choose to use the stock Crosman tubes at high pressures such as 1200 to 1500psi be sure to pressure test them with the valve and cap installed. The valve and cap should be secured for safety. Just because some of us have used these mods at the mentioned pressure does NOT mean all of the tubes are safe at these prssures.
