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.

Things have been a bit slow at work, so I was able to do a bit more on the project.

The trigger and sear pivots are 1/8" stainless shoulder screws.

Still need to radius the edges and buff the frame.

The Frame has a trigger pull adjuster built in. It also has a small recess notched into both sides to accommodate the breech/tube/frame clamps. More pics of those when I make them.

More to come.
