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 How to remove the safety from a 2240 and replace it
Remove the grip frame by removing the two screws that hold on the tube. Be careful of the safety spring as you remove the frame. Don't lose the spring or detent ball. Remove the side plate. Slide the safety out.
Buy or make a brass safety and stick it in the hole the original came out of. Replace the side plate. Using a little grease stick the detent ball and spring back in the frame. The grease will hold it in place. Put the grip frame back up to the tube and reinstall the screws.
I plink, therefore I am.
