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.

it has the as to paintball adaptor, so i use the slim 9 oz pball tanks. i have a 17" .20 caliber lw barrel on it that was lathed down to 7/16" and fits perfectly into the steel breech of the 2250xt. i am only getting 600 fps w/ ftt's and a little less w/ the newer sheridan cylindricals. this carbine has that tube that runs around the outside and brings the propellant into the side of the brass valve. i am using an extra-heavy hammer spring already and a cut piece of ice-maker line for the seal between the outlet of the valve into the rear of the barrel. how can i get more velocity ? how many fps do y'all get w/ your custom modded .22 cal 2250xt's ? - paul. .
