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 Shooting the 1377 in pistol form

have you replaced the trigger spring? A lighter one will make a significant difference. It does help me if I really wrap my hand around the grips - taking out all the slack. Then concentrate on holding the gun (like you say) between middle finger and thumb. I've also found that concentrating on the front sight helps - that's all that needs to be in focus - you can't focus on three different things at three different distances at once, so don't even try.

Disclaimer: most of my pistol shooting is for pistol FT from a modified Creedmoor position.
