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.

1377 SSP Micro Valve WORKS!!

Hot-digity-dog! Sorry for starting a new thread on this gang...

Okay, I finished and tested the SSP valve moments ago! Don't have a 1377 [pistol] yet, but do have a carbine that was constructed out of one a year ago (the one for my daughter for when she is older). It was a real task to get the pump stroke to work being that I did not want to cut up her little carbine and put new holes in it. The rifle has a 16" barrel too!

First, it was tested without plugging the hole in the tube - got 223fps rather consistantly. I tried it plugging the hole (very, very difficult indeed - need three arms almost!). It fired 537fps! Holy smokes! I'm certain some of the air was lost since it was, again, very, very difficult to plug the hole with my thumb. Had to wrap electrical tape several times and then press with my thumb, while hold the pump rod in with a wodden rod. Hell, holding in the pump rod was almost impossible. In fact, when I fired the unit (my wife had to do it) the piston went in about a half inch - meanng I was unable to fully close it by hand. Little dude is not quite either! Sounds more like a little firecracker!

This is just too bad..., well, cool!

I am sooo totally excited about this! In the photo is one U.S. dime for size comparison.
