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.

Rocker Safety Email from Mac1

The following relates to the fitting of a Hard #004 90 Durometer Urethane oring to the bolt of a Sheridan 5MM Rocker Safety Model.

> Are there any hints on how to get the O ring on the bolt without damaging it? TS

I use tweezers. Slip oring over tip and spread with a small driver to stretch oring. A Hemroid specialist showed me this trick as it is the way they use 90 durometer Urethane 003 orings to cut off blood flow to the roids. I know, too much info! Tim

> Any tool to remove the 1/8" bolt that goes into the bolt so the bolt can be pulled out? TS

The tool is an 1/8" allen driven set screw with a wing nut and jam nut on the threaded end and the head turned down so it clears the hole the Lug is in. Tim

> Is there any significance to the serial number? 669 1K TS

1966 K=Nov Year is transposed. Month is in letter form Tim
