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.

...but no power. If it was pumped up, it should have had some power.

Elsewise there are leaks. If you are considering tearing it down, consider this:

Squirt plenty of oil into the pump tube. Get it in there any way you can. Pump it several quick strokes and see if you gain good pressure that will hold. Sometimes that is all it takes to get the seals and valves functioning the way they had ought to.

The excess oil will eventually be shot out if that corrects the problem. If not,you can always tear down the gun.
