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.

We got the gun last week and soon found that it was great fun to shoot but peppered the target like a shotgun.
So after a major CO2 leaking problem it was in bits, whilst I was in there I thought I would tinker. Here's the current mods, mostly to improve accuracy.
The black spring-loaded assembly (the 'detent body') at the front of the valve drilled out to 4mm, installed an O-ring into the obvious slot on the outside rim the plunger, makeing sure the O-ring didn't bog the plunger- but sealed it somewhat. I need to fit a stronger spring in here also but didn't have anything handy. I'll get that next time.
Stablized the pea tube barrel with polystyrene inside the shroud
Lubed and greased up the trigger
Re-crowned the barrel
Lubed the barrel with Dryslide
A few more bits and pieces to go, but its now shooting tight half inch groups, 632ft per sec at 9 degrees C. 48 shots to a bulb.
