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 Think inertial device for rotating hammer.

This may be a feeble attempt to cure the problem of the residual inertia of the ball on the rebound cycle. Where the inertia of the ball tends to keep the ball in position to restrike the valve stem:

A light duty spring would be placed as shown. The illustration shows the position of the ball durring the firing stroke of the striker. When the steel ball contacts the valve stem, the stem will push the ball upward and along the angle to compress the spring and seat proudly in it's pocket. The ball centerline (green) is off center of the valve stem face enough so that the stem flat face continues to make clean contact with the ball but will instantly align the ball with the stem centerline via caming effect of the ball raceway angle therefore compress the spring.

Now the ball is pinned in its pocket, the striker moves forward, opens the valve and rebounds with the ball still held fast in position.

But the striker has to stop in order to return to restrike the valvestem. When this happens, pressure of the valve stem to the ball is removed. This creates a small window of opportunity. Instantly the spring should, under the force of compression and the favor of gravitational force on the ball, propell the ball to position A.
