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.

Response to Make a new barrel for my 760

A barrel for the Crosman 1760 can be machined to work in a 760. I bought one from Mountain Air custom airguns several years ago for my customized 760. I read somewhere that 1760 barrels are getting harder to come by from Crosman, but a .177 Discovery barrel is basically the same thing and it's even notched like a 760 barrel for the rear sight.
My 760 is one of the newer ones with the 5 round pellet magazine (or clip as they call it). Makes it a lot easier to load with a scope on the gun.

On the other hand....

You might try looking for an older Crosman 66. I picked up one from the 80's for $20 at a flea market a couple of years ago (metal receiver) and it was almost like new. 66's had a rifled barrel since they first came out until just recently. Mine's deadly accurate with Destroyer pellets. Little longer length of pull too.

I plink, therefore I am.
