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 New (Crosman forum) member, 1377 story

I've not had a lot of trouble physically other than from lack of variety of exercise
but I have found that I can't hold a pistol on target like I could thirty years ago.
At any rate I'm really liking the stocks on my 13XXs as well as the scopes I can still
use iron sights but its not as much fun due to having to squint so much,ha!
I've certainly had a lot of fun building these things, So go ahead and work with yours
just have fun thats what their made for.

I have went back to a stock length barrel on the gun with cherry buttstock and forearm just
because it happens to be a better barrel. Will probably get another long one later or go
with a taller breech and then shroud the barrel. I've got some thin wall titanium tubing
just waiting to be made into a shroud.
