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.

Response to I have searched awhile this am and could not find the answer,

I do have a suggestion for the valve retaining screw. This works very well in conjunction with the HiPac, and I got the idea from a post by airgunsnirvanna here I believe.
Replace the back half of the co2 valve with the back half of a Disco valve. Now by slightly enlarging the valve retention screw hole in the tube, you can use one of the Disco valve retention screws to "pin" the valve. Works like a charm!


hope this helps
