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.

Had it choked down to 395 a few times..... then began to understand how to work it (and no I dont think I could explain it) and managed a few in the mid 600s...... then only filled to 2600

Shot this:

Super H points, 14,2 iirc Throw 1 turn in from all out, Preload 9.25 increase (clockwise i think) 2600 fill

696..4, 714.4, 713.4, 721.0, 735.1, 746.8, 750.9,  2300 end

2300 start 748.2, 750.2, 749.1, 768.7, 759.6, 758.1,  755.9, 749.4 1900 end

1900 start 749.5, 741.9, 739.7, 728.6, 726.1, 717.5, 704.8, 699.1  1400 end

still got that slight peak at the end of the second magazine. need to squish that out to the other end. I was also srpised to see that gross adjsutments had to be made to see a "visible" difference.
