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.

crosman phantom 500 mods

hey guys, im totally new to this air gun hobby and im really looking forward to it. i still have to figure how to "zero" in my sights/scope. neways gona get to the point. if anyone knows, i was wondering if it is possible to mod a phantom 500 (500fps) with pieces from a phantom1000 (1000fps), purpose being to try and make it more powerful if not as powerful as it's bigger brother. i think it might be possible after looking at some of the part diagrams, i have already taken it apart, and lubed most of it. would it be as simple as replacing the 500 spring with a 1000 spring?? or am i just being a noob :P?

much appreciated if some1 could point me in the right direction
