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.

Thanks Chuck, the down side is now that the compression side losses are being eliminated

Response to even better.

the closing force on the pump lever is 56 lbs! The other side of the equation is eliminating transfer port losses which can pretty easily be 1/3 of the firing chamber volume, because the firing chamber is so small, which means you can loose 1/3 of your pressure befor the air reaches the pellet. I think I've got my losses cut to about 1/5.
