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 An old discussion of the 12gm-Horsepower-second.

that something can't be done.... A while back I posted on the CAF about the theoretical 1649 fps velocity limit for expanding room temperature air.... After a LOT of discussion, one of the members took a Condor filled to 2700 psi (air, not Helium), pried the sabot from a .22 cal RWS Hyper Velocity Pellet and blasted the 1.4 gr. piece of plastic through his Chronograph at 1734 fps.... When asked for a repeat, he videotaped it and got two more shots of 1680 and 1701....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jxT8y8-9j8
