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.

I have been a proponent of your company for years. The Marauder is a game changing product for American airgunning. Your company is pro customer. Your warranty and customer service is outstanding. Now to my question.......

Why don't you ask "us" about design possibilities particularly stock design? Who designed the Marauder stock and what school of art did they graduate from? I'm very sure they were a local carpenter who really likes 2x4's. The checkering is awful......I put all my guns into silicone "socks", and the Marauder checkering flakes off every time I remove it from the sock. Here is a link to the Yellow forum where a notable stock maker makes a simple change in the design of the Marauder stock, and the improvement is amazing

Are you listening? How hard would it be to put several designs out on this forum and the Yellow for us to vote on which one we liked best. We can help you! We know what is good and what is not. The blocky, heavy, goofy looking stock that you now offer is hurting your sales (in my opinion). Take some of the wood off, and look at European designs and some of the designs of "our own". We know that cost is a major player in all corporate decisions. Less wood = cost savings. Less checkering (unless you can fix it) = cost savings. Better looking stock = more sales. We all win!

WHAT, CROSMAN, DO YOU THINK?
