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 hmmm, got my 760 , sidelever might not be as easy as i thought

I guess that's the price you have to pay if you want to go crazy in tricking out your 760... If you have a jig to hold the tube and a drill press it shouldn't be too bad to drill the holes... I'm just wondering if the old holes get in the way of the planned new holes because I've never looked at one with a plan like this.... If everything looks good, you can measure and use marked bands of masking tape as guides before you drill... So you need holes for the front pivot, rear support, trigger sear, and hammer pin... You also need to figure out what you are going to do about a barrel band because I don't know of any that go on allowing for a sideways pump... There may be a clearance problem with the roll pin and barrel also but you probably can use some sort of pin with a curved head on top to contour with the tube... I say, if you're "that good" and up to the task, "Go for it!"
