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 Dan, here's how...

thanx Phil!

I had not considered cocking it, but would have run into it some point... happy.gif Was thinking it thru only from an air path perspective...

I had been contemplating a riser plate, thick enough for the breech screws to attach to, yet not allow them to protrude into the striker path. Solder the riser plate to the tube.

About the 2 oring barrel mount.... wouldnt the space between the rings-dead space at this point-- bleed off some of the air? better off to cut the barrel back past the TP? or would you need to cut a new leade at that point?

back to the drawing board in my head.....
