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.

I like to think of cold like the way I think of vacuum. One is the absence of air...

Response to thats really cold, hard to comprehend almost...isnt absolute zero -456?

...the other is the absence of heat. That analogy suggests that, because something as cold as boiling LN2 has only about 1/4 the heat energy as something at room temperature, it's a little like air pressure at an altitude of 35,000 feet (i.e., where jets carry millions of passengers every day).

Neither is anything a naked human being can survive for more than a few seconds - but still a long way from absolute zero. happy.gif
