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.

CR140 *numbers stamped on stock*?

Hey all-

just got another 140 in the mail yesterday, seriously love that model. picking up the pumpers more now that the temp is down in the 30-40s.

I have another 140 and a 147, all 3 are the newer version with the flip safety. The one that came in yesterday is different tho, in that it has a number stamped on the stock, on the inside of the stock, where the forearm and main stock meet (if that makes sense) so that its not visible when the pump arm is closed. It reads 1288

Just curious about this, like I said, the others which are similar age don't have any number there.

Anyone have any info on this?

Thanks, hope you guys are having fun with the 1377 build, dont spend too much time in the shop around the holidays, your inlaws will confirm that youre insane hahaa

just kidding
andy
