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 Surely this is not right? Any comments appreciated...

Here is a shot of the stainless probe simply pushed into the .177 barrel, no breech to confuse the issue

Here is a brass .177 extended probe

Here is the two probes side by side, not a great picture I am afraid and hardly scientific. Not easy to see but I used the lined paper through the bolt holes to centre.
The brass bolt has more brass behind the handle and doesn't reach so far into the barrel

I'll try to measure the distance between the bolt handles and the o-ring grove as accurate as possible for each probe.
