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 carbine progress update

Nice work.

If you ar concerned about the stroke, purchase a Benji HB pistol inlet valve. It is shorter in length AND has much less volume. You would see gains immediatley on 10 pumps. However, you will then need to add some length to the factory piston (slightly less than 1/2"). To do this, (1) you can cut the piston rod then thread both ends (1/4x20 threads) or, (2) heat up the end where the lever link attaches and pull out the piston rod and thread the hole to 1/4x20 thread and the piston rod. You then would need to use a sleeve nut to capture both ends.

As far as the slot. The slot should have needed to be extended the same amount that has been removed from the tube, (edit) that's if you were using factory components. I did not scroll far enough to see the piston unitl later - oops. Put a rod in that piston (make it longer), problem/stroke will be solved.

Survival Benji? Now time to bed liner the stock.
