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.

650-700 FPS .22?

I have a new CS 2400KT .22 caliber Carbine with an 18" barrel. I do not have a chrony and don't know what the stock FPS is. Maybe 550? I would like the gun to be at least 650 and not eat up CO2 cartridges too bad. I would at least like 25 good full power shots. I'm new to CO2 and do not know where to start. I know maybe a boss valve but I've heard also to get one through Mountain Air Custom airguns. I know airguns are like race car parts, Your airflow is only as good as it's weakest point! So just dropping in a high flow valve may not be what I need. What is the HDD I see you talking about? Like I said, I want more power but don't want to only get 10-15 shots per 12 gram cartridges. Is this at all possible? Thanks
