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.
120psi propane wouldn't burn at all, Rob - too little oxygen.February 22 2012 at 8:12 AM

Response to iirc the compressed pressure of propane is 120psi
If you're old enough to remember cars with carburetors, then you know about "flooding" an engine with gas. Too much fuel (i.e., too "rich" a mixture) will put the fire out.
The same principle applies to all fuels that depend on an external oxidizer - propane too.
So if you tried to mix 120psia (i.e., 8 bar) propane with 14.5psia (i.e., 1 bar) air, you wouldn't get more pressure. You'd get no combustion at all.
