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.

180 with QB78 stock cut to fit

I have a 180 that has an original stock thats a little beat up. I wanted a nicer stock but wanted to leave the original alone so last week I cut down a QB78 stock to fit. Left a little more meat than the original stock, and with the butt pad and little longer forearm it added around 2 3/4 crucial inches for a more 'adult' feel. You can see it in the 2nd pic that I had to drill a new hole for the locating stud and the old hole is a bit unsightly but I'm not a perfectionist so it doesn't bother me. White butt spacer did not come out as clean as I hoped but again, Im satisfied with it. It was one of the old orange painted, gross looking QB stocks that someone gave me last year because they were gonna just throw it away. wood grain is decent I would say.
One things I really like about this gun is it shoots the 22 gamo round balls just as accurate as can be at high and low power. It really is a hole on hole gun, I just cant get enough of it. Also it has the all brass valve.
Anyway hope you like it too!
