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.

after all these years i finally purchased a 2240. found it on craigs list for $40.00. sure, i had some reservations on its condition, but comeon... a 2240 for that price? ive had it now for 2 weeks, run 2 tins {of 150} cp points down range and i gotta say....why did i wait so long to buy one??!!i have 5 1377s and 2 1322s and an assortnent of co2 pistols, i am seriously kicking myself in the a@@ for not stepping up and getting one of these awesome pistols sooner!!!!!as far as i can tell, its "box stock". i havent cleaned it or broken it down, yet, and it shoots like a dream!i even did the "soap bar" test 50 ft. wow! now i really understand why these are so highly modded. please forgive my "newbie" rant, but to any reader who does not own one...this IS in my {recently humbled} opinion, a must have. i will never give up my collection of 13xx pumpers, but i have to say,my first impression of the 2240 was quite a plesant surprise.
