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 That was one of the arguments proposed....

1. The molecular velocity stat' most likely to be relevant is, not the average velocity, but the RMS velocity, since this is the one that corresponds to average kinetic energy.

2. An air temperature of 40C = 104F produces an RMS velocity of 519m/s = 1703fps, and air reservoirs are often this warm (or even far warmer) after a recent fill.

3. There are many ways to inadvertently perturb the calibration of the readings from a Shootin' Chrony chronograph by 6% (or more), and 1750/1650 = 1.06.
