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.

on High Pressure Air guns! If your tube doesn't say Silicone on it then don't use it. Pellgun oil is for CO2 not HPA and it's also not good to use on springers either cause it can cause diesling.
Here's a picture of Crosman's Silicone Oil:

if your tube doesn't say siliicone on it then DO NOT USE IT! Pellgun oil is petrolium based and from the heat that HPA can create it can ignite it and you can get seriously injured or die. Please do me a favor and research the do's and dont's with HPA (high pressure air). HPA can be very dangerous if you don't know what you are doing. I don't know if Ace Hardware sells it you'll have to check. You can order the Crosman Silicone Chamber oil from Crosman or you can order it on Amazon. ALSO if you have been using pellgun oil on that air gun of yours while you were using CO2 and your switching to HPA then you need to take it apart and clean the AS block assembly the transfer tube and your valve out so that there is no pellgun oil residue in them. Honestly it's a better idea to pull the whole gun apart and clean everything so that there is no chance of cross-contamination. If you don't you could have bomb in your hands if you stick your HPA tank on. Please avoid using HPA until you understand how dangerous it can be.
