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 Something tells me....

Several years ago, the Tippmann paintball gun company came out with a Propane powered gun that ran off of small non-refillable propane canisters (the type used for small camping stoves). They claimed the gun got 50,000 shots from one 16oz can. When the gun was pumped, it loaded 1 paintball and charged a combustion chamber with a mixture of air and propane. Pulling the trigger created a spark to ignite the mixture and the ball went hurtling down range at 300 f.p.s. The gun never really caught on, since it's a pump in a field dominated by 12+ ball-per-second semi-autos (I wanted one!)

It would be very interesting to apply this system to an air rifle. I'm sure the BATF would be knocking on my door if I ever made one though.
