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.

Response to Desert guns
I've been shooting in the desert for the past 12 years now
with springers, rams, Co2's, and pumpers, all shoot with zero
problems. The only thing I do different is only shoot Co2's and
rams in the heat. In extreme heat(100+ degrees) the moly in the springers tend to
"melt" because of the heat and will run past the piston seal causing dieseling.
So to stop this from happening, always put the rifle in the car with the barrel pointing
up when not shooting, and always point the barrel up when cocking the gun.
