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.

disco mods how much will shorter barrel affect fps and fpe?

OK so I've been planning what all I want to do to my .22 disco. Currently it has an hdd and three screw trigger mod. I don't currently have a curing and only other air rifle I had was a 392 I sold to upgrade to the disco which I have now had since like April or May.

Little advice if possible, please. happy.gif

I want to add a BNM multi shot breech. Will the hdd still fit and work?
I would also like to ad a shroud or half shroud and use a barrel something like 4" shoter so the overall length of the gun stays about the same. Does anyone know how much this would affect the crosman barrels? Velocity? Energy? Precision/ accuracy?Or should I upgrade a a Lothar Walther? Is there a cheaper alternative to LW that would work?
Lastly I am thinking of swapping out the disco trigger pack for a prod trigger. I know at that point I will need to replace the stock, but has anyone had any issues with this?

Thanks!
