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.

Doesn't look like much has changed...

but looks can be deceiving.

Lets see. over the last month or so I've tweaked the AS2250 quite a bit.

1st: Upped the pressure behind the pellet to 1800psi.
2nd: Beefed up the hammer spring.
3rd: Made a 1018 steel hollow probe bolt and cocking lever.
4th: Put anti-friction rings on the striker.
5th: Beefed up all seals.
6th: Made a metal transfer tube.
7th: Made a Delrin poppet.
8Th: Made a 12" shroud.
9Th: Had Leupold change the scope parallax from 60yrds to 25yrds.
10th:Changed the scope rings to a medium from a low.
11th:Waiting for a Pacific Pelletguns two stage trigger to arrive.

End result, went from 685fps w/25.4gr pellet to 790fps with the same 25.4gr pellet. 35.2fpe! Not a leak to be found anywhere.

Very pleased with how everything turned out. Raising the optic really helped with allowing for a much improved cheek weld. Groupings are good now but should be great after the new trigger goes in.

Going to have to change it's name to the turkey tenderizer -at least until rabbit season opens.

Gobble. Gobble.
