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 Here's another thought. At any given PSI, the power of both air and CO2 powerplants...

Use a QB, an empty 12gr. with the neck drilled out so the piercing stem doesn't touch it, and a full 12gr. at the front end, the vel. should be the same as if i were to reverse that process (drilled empty to the front, new full 12gr. to the rear)?

Seems a simple enough test...its my week to be on call, and have been getting home a bit late for tests, but I'll get around to it.
