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 10 months in... (long)

it's going to need a barrel. i'm going to fab up a single shot tray out of wood. the magazine might work well and all but i would likely shoot it more single shot.
it is a substantial piece and more in line with a mini carbine setup. i am going to shoot it without the butt stock and with a large rifle scope so either a taco hold, or shot across folded arms. i'm a rifle guy so will be happy with a midget rifle.
i want a brit style gun and would have been happy to get the full sized marauder rifle but the pistol seems to shoot more naturally in the non FAC power levels. the whole thing about this piece has me going, it's a pistol sort of but more of a carbine and suited to shoot at 10-15 fpe. it could make a nice stealth piece that could be carried in a pack and allow some discreet sniping while on walks where tramping around with a rifle on a sling might raise eyebrows.
i might get extraordinarily lucky and get a great barrel but sort of doubt it will happen. i'd be willing to pop for an l/w but wonder if a cut down marauder rifle barrel or something would also work. crosman has done something very strange and mysterious with these barrels and it may be the way they have choked them. ?
