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.

First of all, official statement of howdy from the great white north. Mid-thirties mom of 6 from Alaska. It's -21 this morning and I'm working on my winter project. My tinkering background is mostly paintball. I play a the local field with my boys and I've got a bunch of parts sitting around from various markers from the last 20 years.

My mitten gun. Started with a 2240 and a budget of $50 or less. So barrel, breech, springs and rest was just parts laying around. Did all the normal valve mods, port etc. Bunny hunting goodness! Still needs a few touches. Fore grip, adj maxflow so I can run it at 1200psi, longer breech probe etc. Fun project, can shoot with mittens or gloves. Going to use a scout scope type mount eventually to make loading easy.

That's a modified WGP hinge frame for an autococker. They are a cheap, 45 style grip frame. Trigger pull is around 1.5 to 2 lbs stock. With the narrow sear top, I was able to put a second notch on the hammer for a high and low power setting. Currently running 900 psi from a 45/4500.

Getting a ton of shots off this tank. Unfortunately my paintball chrono doesn't read pellets.
