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.

but the only kudos I can give it are that it is INCREDIBLY light....

and it MAY want to group.

Opened the box, looked the gun over, and right away noticed that the front sight is canted off to the left, badly. Like, 11:30 badly. No amount of windage adjust is gonna fix it, the sight is gonna have to be torqued.

Do these move easily?

I put a cheap 4x on it, just to see if it would group, before I called customer service.....but unfortunately, got the 2 priming shots out, and then shot 2 (which went in darn near the same hole) but then lost the rest of my cart out the barrel. Removed the spent one, looked down the tube with a flashlight....didnt see anything that looked abnormal, or like trash. So loaded a second, got 2 prime shots, and then lost the cart thru the barrel again. Tried a third, same result.

So now I sit, waiting to hear back from customer service... happy.gif and I cant stop thinking...the valve,meh....I can see that happening. But the does that make it past QC? I've got a nice little certificate...that LOOKS to be signed and dated.
Was packed nice, and no damage to the box....doesnt look like a shipping issue.

Anyway, although disappointed initially, once the issues are ironed out....I am CERTAIN that this gun is gonna float the boat. I cannot believe the weight. IF I can get it to 650 or so with normal weight .22's, or get roughly 12+ fpe out of it, I'm gonna be happy. These are supposed to be very accurate. Top that off with some elbow grease and a HIPAC, and this is a d0-it-all gun...LOVE guns like that.

God bless,
