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 Dup.

Suppress all detonation and then lock up the piston at full stop (Max compression)

What a power house you would have. A "dumper" with a PCP reservoir.

I want one. !!! It would be WAY better than a pump up in regard to to pumping commotion, and would have an interesting softer kick in the recoil.

I want one! (oh! I already said that)

And I don't mean friction drag to slow the rebound, what is needed is an arrester. "THE CLAW"

Cardew's sprague clutch was a joke in those proportions with only three points of contact. Forces would have been very high.
Throw that design out!
