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 Re: Wow---how many pumps did you

thing is a check valve.
And in fact, its round and slides up and down inside the valve.
Its held in place by the valve spring which keeps it shut over the little hole in the end of the valve to hold the air in it.
You overcome the springs pressure by pumping the forearm and the piston pushes the air in the little hole.
The other end of the valve spring holds the exhaust valve shut until the hammer hits it and opens the valve to release the air into the exhaust port and out the barrel.
Hope this helps.
P.S. If it worked before, hopefully cleaning it out and putting it back
together will fix the problem without having to buy a new one.
Besides, the brass valves are the good ones.
The new valves are all aluminum.
