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 yup just came up again and Ron Has a fairly simple rig design to do it

This is an electricians tool which can shear off screws to proper length stop I do not have one but have used one stop I believe it will shear a screw size up to 10-32 stop Anyway, the force to shear a 10-32 with such tool is not all that great as even a scrawny caveman can to it stop

Soooo, IF I had one of these tools, I would extend the handles about 18 inches by sliding two lengths of tubing over them stop To determine the force required to shear the 10-32, I would place one handle on a bathroom scale and push down on the other handle so as to get a scale reading when the screw shears stop Then I would back figure the MA to determine the actual shear force stop
