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 392 valve observation

while i am fairly new to the air gun community,as far as mods. and rebuilds,i have been a professional mechanic for 30+ years.in my years at the shop i have tried a wide variety of prelubes, assy.lubes,etc. i will agree that sylglyde is a great product with many uses. recently i have been using a silicone gel/electronic grade dielectric "grease" on an assortment of o rings,and the rubber/silicone gaskets{like the ones used in plastic intake manifolds} with good results.i am planning to mod one of my 1377s and intend to try this as an assy. lube,using only the thinnest schmear needed. when i get it finished, and run a couple tins down range, i will report back after a teardown,to inspect for any reactions in the seals, etc.
