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: 1377 build off: Im gonna say no to the $90 limit// some basic rules

I like Andy's breakdown of Custom and Superstock. But I would flip the definitions.

As for "Unlimited"..... Well, the idea is to build this your self. your mods, a way to spur creative thinking and execution. So Maybe another catagory, under "unlimited" ? Not opposed to the Crosmod built guns (indeed, if I could afford it, I'd have one or thrree myself happy.gif ),  but   I'm resistant to the idea of allowing a gun built mostly of aftermarket parts.

Ok, how about this:

Superstock: use Andy's definition of "custom"

Custom: Andy's definiton of "superstock"

Unlimited: Use my limits on aftermarket parts, and the rest of Andy's secription

Commerical: Andy's complete description of "unlimited"

 

addendum: instead of a dollar amount, maybe an aftermarket to factory parts ratio,,,, like no more than 30% of aftermarkte parts, Comercial class not included.......

 

Judging? If you have an entry, you get one vote in each class. So if we have 5 competitors, there would be 20 total votes cast. (and thats an even number, so I think we'll need tiebreaker verbage)
