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 andy dont spill the beans on the yellow

I have a few springers. I joke about how awkward they are, but they are my guns of summer when it's too hot and humid to do a lot of pumping! LOL.
The Gamo has been soft-tuned and shoots super smooth in the mid 600's, R7 territory, and just right for backyard shooting. It's the only springer I have that I can hit the target on the first shot, like a pumper.

I plink, therefore I am.
