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 paradox barrel works great at slower velocities. A lapping on the transition area may improve higer velocity accuracy.

The Makarov mod can be done using a Crosman barrel AND the factory barrel. Drill out the bore of the Crosman barrel so the straw barrel of the Mak slips in. This will create the longer 7/16 barrel for fitting devices.

No choke..

The brass tube is slipped over two sections of 7/16 barrel. One barrel is smooth bore and the other is rifled. The rifled section is about 2" long. The compression rings secure the brass tube to the barrels making a tight fit and keep the barrels centered (concentric).

The Mak slide is removed by pulling the slide back (hold it), lower the trigger guard, lift up on the rear of the slide then slide forward all the while holding the trigger guard down.

this barrel sounds prettty wild.. Ill open up the pistol tonight , perhaps thread some foward facing screws through the mock barrel face to secure a nut , and start the ldc from there.
