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.

The Brutuz "evo" seal mod - info here:

http://www.crosman-air-pistol-owners-forum.com/board/index.php/topic,721.msg57327.html#msg57327

This is basically a thin seal element between the transfer port and barrel.

The shroud is a reflex-type, similar to the a Daystate Airstream, but it vents backwards along the barrel. The main tube is thinwall seamless aluminum tube, 1" OD, . The rear support is black Delrin, secured to the barrel with a set screw and pressed into the aluminum tube. The front end is 6061 aluminum, light-pressed into the tube and threads securely onto the barrel (3/8-16). I finished it with black satin Krylon.

Also - I modified the mount for the Lead Shed, different than the pix above. The new mount keeps the Lead Shed from getting bumped accidentally and dispensing my precious JSB Exacts onto the ground. The picture below also shows my range/elevation chart for shooting out to 60 yards.
