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.
i have ask this ques on other forums. the ans.i receive was the 357 seems to be accurate enough without the scope. some have tried it with a red dot,like a crosman Model Number 0290RD, than went back to open sites. i need a red dot site because i wear glasses and have a problem with close up and seeing the site pic. clearly. i have use my girlfriend p-17 with a red dot scope an i have no problems shooting her gun.
as for the 8" barrel from PRECISION PELLET, i ordered a 8" and a 4" on monday and rec. them yesterday. both were black but i think RICK said that it was the last black 8" he had but has some in silver. they are complete with housing and barrel already assembled.now the 8" is a metal housing while the stubby 4" is plastic housing. neither one is ribbed for a scope.
now all i have to do is to buy 2 more 357's and change out the housing, it only take 1 screw to change them, an i'll have a trio of 357 guns. an all will be 10 magazines guns not like the their cousins which were only 6 or 8 shot mags.
