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.

I got a Benjamin 397 with a pooched valve in a package deal. The treads on the Valve Retaining nut are in bad shape and the original springs are missing.
I have a spare cartridge type valve, would it be possible to remove the soldered section of the old valve and re-install the newer type valve?
I do not want to put much time into getting replacement parts for the old valve as the threads inside are likely just as bad as the retaining nut.
