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.

figuring out the sweet spot

Response to need to find the sweetspot

Me, I usually shoot a string of pellets from a known psi to known psi. and with my Prod, I started out high like 3000psi and found the fpe leveled out about 26-2700 psi. so the next string I started at that point and most of the other pellets tested from that pressure seem to be right on.
shooting with different pellets on the same fill doesnt seem like it would get any thing because as the pressure drops the difference in pellets would affect the results. so shooting with one pellet, than another on the same fill, till you find the sweet spot of all pellets tested.
makes sense?
