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.

222 pounds force came from your 'example' of the Disco gauge

Response to in the hipac case there would be flow through the port

The disco guage is sealing at a diameter of say 0.375 and a pressure of 2,000psi acting on that
means there will be a force on teh gauge threads of 222 pounds.


Flow through the HiPac tip will occur each shot but due to the choked design the pressure at the seal will be less than the static pressure so reducing the force. The maximum force on the assembly occurs at 3,000psi when filled. After that pressure drops reducing force as well as when flowing force is reduced.
