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.

Starting at the front I added a TKO muzzel brake, recrowned 14.6" inch barrel, modded 1377 barrel support, discovery bolt and handle,
power adjuster is used to easily swap out hammer springs, Hi-Pac happy.gif wrapped it and air tube in carbon fiber, lanyard for dust cap.

The addition of the grip frame and hammer allow the use of a truly heavy hammer spring.From True Value( #44U it's 047 gauge wire. Cut down to about 1 and 7/8" long 5/16" dia. ) With a fill of a few hundred psi or so over "MSRP" (manufacturer's suggested rated pressure) 3200
14.3 CPHP +- 3 fps

To me this is now the perfect carbine. Thanks again Alex
