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.
Yes. I agree, James. But whether the piston moves or not...January 17 2011 at 6:11 PM

Response to If the gun shoots faster with,
...during the firing cycle, there must have been a significant fraction of the total volume of the air charge between the piston crown and the port before the valve opened.
So, whether the piston moves or not, the effect would be the same. If the port is so restrictive as to interfere with that fraction of the charge doing its share to pressurize the bore and push the pellet, velocity will suffer. No?
