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 time cruch

hehe thats not really my style happy.gif

But I knew that part of it would take the longest (mold and shape, let dry 24 hours.... glue up, let dry 24 hours,,,, etc). and I had to prep the comp tube before I could paint it. We (the Mrs. and I ) are in the middle of reorganizing her studio, and I'd move/pakc/toss/shclep/carry/drop then do something on the gun, and go back to slaving in the studio....

And this effort has the advantage of all the other stuff Ive built. It being soooo similar tot he 1377 has helped a lot.
