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 Still more to be had

Hi Tony,
I'm also trying to set up my 1740 HiPac.
My last visit to the clubs chrono produced similar results.
I'll post my string when I get home but it did have a spread of around 100fps returning up to 30 shots with a fill of 120bar.
I need to do a test like Roberts great post on how fps spread effects accuracy.
I'd like to know how to flatten the curve and open to suggestions. I could try fill pressures and have a spare hammer/striker that I can get reduced.

I live in the UK with a 6fpe max gun law. I'm looking for a maximum number of consistent 5fpe shots.
Cheers
Ian
