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 noticed Andy tried to getthe fiberglass stock primer

I wanted to see what everyone was talking about and trying to figure why you couldn't do a thumbhole. I finally got the site saw his mold split horizontally. That explained the no thumb hole. All the synthetic stocks I've seen have the mold split vertically.
High school shop class had us making green sand molds to cast aluminum, so I understand a bit about mold making limitations. And a man's got to know his limitations.

I may not mess with FG but I like to see what's going on and check out others designs.

I plink, therefore I am.
