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.

Looks mismatched

Response to Re: easier for me "w/pic"

The walnut looks mismatched and may be as I have walnut from several sources but
the difference isn't as noticeable as in the pic although I wasn't trying to match
the pieces at the time, as much as trying to be frugal with my diminishing supply.
The best shooting 13XX that I referred to had red oak wood which isn't usually used
on guns that I know of but it looked sharp and had the advantage of being easy to lay
hands on. If also is fairly easy to work with good sharp tools.
Oh and that was my first woodwork for an airgun so don't be afraid to try a little DIY

I did recomend that the new owner replace the scope but they kinda liked it go figure
