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.

O rings....

last night I was setup to get my groups, shot a few off the workmate, and remember its s terrible bench rest platform. Swapped in a better table, and started in for real. First sighter shots were impressively grouped, set the targets of record on the back stop and started. the next shot the bolt was very stiff, the shot after that the bolt was danr near impossible to close, and the next one just whiffed. Sure enough, I'dd killed and lost the O ring on the bolt......

Anybody got an idea of a hardware store replacement till I cna get some from crosman? or just run the bolt in and test fit a few.....

Accuracy wise at 10 metres its looking good, but its a small data set, and I'm reluctant to claim "good groups" till I get a few more holes in the paper...
