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.
frame? If you are talking about the frame, what model are y'all talking about? I bought a 1377 a few months ago and it was still metal for the frame but plastic for the cover.
All the more reason to continue collecting fourth variant 140s. I picked up a 1400 the other day and was surprised to find its safety lever was plastic. I guess late 140, early 1400 really was the zenith of Crosman pumper production. Compared to my lowly 1377, they sure are solid and a pleasure to shoot even if the triggers are heavy.
I also picked up a second variant 180 and it sure is sweet. I don't have a CO2 rifle to compare it to so I don't know if it is better or worse than a 2260. I understand that there is an all metal Chinese clone of the 160 but there isn't of the 180 so the 180 seemed to be more collectable.
