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 Pumpers.... show of hands

Well, since I tore a 1377 carbine to make a CO2 one, I have a 1377 to work on now! LOL! I have a 2260 barrel I will cut down to 12 or 14 inches and install in it rather than revert back to a 1377 barrel. Maybe I'll keep the barrel at 24", I don't know...

Got a 760 project going on too. My wife bought me one of the new streamlined black ones for Christmas and it was dying for a rifled barrel. Into the testing stage now. Great time for my shoulder to act up!

Then there's the 392. It's about half way disassembled/reassembled right now and I'm about half way sick of it. It's one of those sow's ear/silk purse things. No matter how much I work on it I can't make it work as nice as my 47 year old Sheridan! sad.gif

I plink, therefore I am.
