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.

Response to I used Ms paint for that, lol...

Very impressive, I actually
have a copy of your 2240
hanging in my home office.
(had to do some serious
work in photoshop to get
it to print well due to
the quality of the "save as"
but it looks nice)

Was hoping to buy,trade,talk
you out of a cad file for it.
Kinda sad to hear one never
existed. You did an incredible
job none the less.

I was able to put your jpg in
my cad software and have it do a "trace"
it was not to scale but since I knew the
tube size was able to scale it after the
trace. Not a great trace, but gave me
a good reference until I get the parts in
hand to measure.
