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.
It depends on the valve volume,October 26 2011 at 1:37 AM

Response to good call the fpe is exponential
Approximately proportional to the bore volume, which is a square relationship,
but the relationship drops off as larger bores deplete a given valve volume more.
Bore volume ratio per length: (.177 , .22, .312) is approx. 1 : 1.5 : 3.1
The way I did the receiver it did away with the clamshell, it can easily take 9mm or up to .50 barrel.
After working on 1008's, 357's & nightstalker I had enough of exploding clamshells.
