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.

Thanx guys for all the responses to my post below (http://www.network54.com/Forum/275684/thread/1340385526/back+to+the+P+Rod....)

I leave you  alone for a couple days, and the brain trust goes wild with a lot of great info and suggestions. Now to sort thru it all....

A lot of talk about changing, or not, the TP from its .101 to possibly something closer to factory diameter..... split the difference? (hehe what we need here is an externally adjustable TP with an iris type "shutter" to be able to test the various theories discsussed sans disassembly... )

Scott was the only one to mention fill pressure. Is that an area needs exploration?  Try the same settings across a number of fill pressures and see what happens?

Was thinking of doing just that... run both adjustment back to "zero"(and counter striker preload to verify my count was corect from last week), then a mag over the chrony to see what happens. Study that for a moment, then make another adjustment and retest? Only test one setting (say striker preload first, then hammer throw)?  set both to the "mid range" and work it either way?

Does all this go straight into the trash heap when I change pellet weights? ( I suppose after this thing settles in, and I find what thing likes to eat, that I should buy a few tonnes of them....)

So I thinkI'll start with:

No change to anything: 5 shots each at 2400, 2600, 2800, 3000. record and plot. Baseline in its current state

run both adjsutments to "zero" and rerun the fill spread test, record and plot

run one adjsutment (striker preload most likely) to the 1/2 point, run the fill spread test, record and plot

dont change the adjustment made above, but start moving the other, record results across the fill spread

I would think that by the third set of tests that some indication or pattern would begin to develop, and suggest a further course of action.

At this point, I open the floor to discussion......
