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.
Thank you very much.February 13 2012 at 11:54 AM

Response to Re: How to extend a barrel.
I had no idea how long the dowel rod needed to be. Have you tried this using epoxy? The barrels are .440 OD and the SS tubing I plan to use is .460 ID. That leaves .020 clearance. That would be .010 on all sides if I am looking at it right. I will be using the sleeve on the full length.
Does this sound ok?
