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.

Simple interference fit in the flash supressor that sits flush to barrel, or goes further into flash supressor and sits or clamps on barrel..the black delrin matches nice.

Make it non-removable. So you aren't tempted to use it in other ways. lol

uhm, OK

Not having seen one up close (and out of the box) I didn't realize all the doodads on the barrel were part of the receiver moldings. I thought they were individual parts.
