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.

Conservative area why not ( umm just remembered )..digress ..that 100 psi would only precharge the valve first pump..useless after that..im just trying to think aside from the compression stroke, where else could the addional air be used effectively.

Don't worry about the extra air which escapes

that only means the compressor is running at idle and not compressing air while opening and closing the handle. Narry enough to significantly drain the battery. Better to let the air escape than to rig/install troublesome switching to conserve that modest amount of air.

My experimenting with a 5/8 X 8" sweep pump is that the supercharging to ~70psi happens very quickly. Which is, IMHO, a welcome pause between strokes.
