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.
Well, I have to say I am pleased with the new-found critter stopping power of my converted .22 cal rig here. Nabbed 3 tree rats over the past weekend, farthest out to about 22 yards with a head shot, and found the stopping power to be immediate. No more runaways like I was experiencing with the .177 gun. I have to say, I have always been a big subscriber to the "placement, not power" school of thought, but in a sub-800fps gun, .177 just doesn't seem to cut the mustard on tough tree rats.
