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.

or maybe more correctly, 1399 carbine stock mods......

Photobucket

Stock after cutting the ~2.25 inches off, and JB weld and screwing on the3/4 inch plywood piece on

 

Photobucket

After shaping the added wood (belt sander and 80 grip belt). Loacted and drilled the holes for the cheek rest. I "repurposed"  the  cheek rest from the 1377 build gun. I didnt take a pic of the brass insert that contains the set screw to hold the rest in position

 

Photobucket

stock back on the gun. Still need to clean it up a little and paint the raw wood. And it will need a butt pad of some kind, but I'll have to make that so it stays "thin" and doesnt add back the lenght I just cut off. That's tonights work.
