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: ok andy , mine has a rifled barrel

i know if dan can get his trigger like the one on his mrod , he will have a super accurate gun givenn his current configuration.(cant speak on that lol) Im hoping for dimes at 20yrds, thats my goal , although the stock rifling is very shallow , almost like the old straw barrels shallow.. so soft or very large pellets will be key...need to get some minor machining done , then my sidepumper will be back together , then ill test for accuracy.My real goal in the buildoff, to have a gun i can shoot relaibly and quietly for yrs after the buildoff is over, so no stone will go unturned.I dont want it to be like the 201 challenge where the gun was junk right after the build never to be shot again, thats a big rreason why more people joined this time , because the gun wont be garbage afterwards.
