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.

Have you considered a springer/ram or SSP pistol?

Response to out of the box pistols

Your choices are good ones, but a good SSP or springer will fit the bill for plinking fun. For a cheap, all around great pistol, the Beeman P17 is a fantastic bargin. Great plinker and very accurate.

As far as future potential in regards to upgrades, any one of the Crosman pistols will suffice. Though a Crosman made gun, the EB22, it is rather limited in easy mods. Mods can be done, but require a great deal more than the simple removal of factory parts and adding custom like with the other guns.
