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.

With stock valve stem, stock weight valve spring, and stock weight hammer spring. Valve has no porting or polishing. The breech is Cothran Machine with hollow bolt. Gun has a 12 inch barrel. Velocity Adjuster was unscrewed all the way, so no extra tension on the spring. Also used one of Anthony's Protops to test the gun with 12 gram cartridges.
Temp 65 degrees using co2 12 gram
14.66 grain Beeman FTS domed
CED Millennium Chronograph
I will be testing again tomorrow when it is warmer. I also replaced the stock stem with a polished ground down one. I haven't started porting the valve, and I am over 9 ft/lbs for at least 1 shot.
