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 Chrony speeds and adjustments

I thought I figured out how to adjust, but what your writing is just the opposite of what the OM says to do.
the hammer spring (3/16 hex) will only turn 7-1/4 turns to full cw and the hammer striker(1/8 hex) 12 turns to full cw.

forget saying preload, because both the spring and striker have preload.

if your adjusting with the 1/8 hex your adjusting the striker preload.

if your adjusting with the 3/16 hex your adjusting the spring preload.

now if your adjusting 9-1/2 turns, it can only be the striker preload, which acording to the OM decreases the flow of air, so your choking the air flow.

if your adjusting the spring preload, it only will turn 7-1/2 turns, that I know from doing it, once adjusted full ,the hammer spring guide will only turn till the opened end of the threads and will turn but will not doing anything to the spring.

this is getting too technical for me, its giving me a migraine. all I want is to get the numbers your getting.

now what are you adjusting to get your numbers, spring or striker?
