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 becuase the slotting lowered the center line

Let me see if my cell phone can do a better pic, or pics...

I assume the Crosman intermounts will now work since the barrel is 7/16" diamater now. Did have a set, but traded them off a while back...

Be right back!

Notice the end plug. There is a slight radius removed equal to that of the tube. The removed portion is only as thick as the lip on the plug.

You can see my sweet solder job! Yeah, I am self centered on it! My first attempt at soldering on a Benji and it went too well!! You will also notice how the added tubes mate up evenly and centered on the breech taper.

I measured all the tubes (diameters), even the pump tube, then crunched the math as to how much the tube will need to be removed each time a tube was added, as the barrel got thicker by the layers.

My only question is if the head annealed the metal or not (?). Next, it will be media blasted then a nice coat of gray (or grey) appliance epoxy for that parkerized look. Any better ideas on paint?
