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.
Since there are no physical prizes to win, just bragging rights, what would it hurt if there were a tie? There's always next time.
Basically no problem with what you just said, just a few clarifications.
If we're modding a Brand X Model Y gun the part that says X-Y needs to be a part ofthe build. You want a different part that that? Replace it after the build off. If there is no properly ID'd and serial numbered part how do we know you even bought a Brand X Model Y gun in the first place? If it doesn't say "Crosman" on it, is it really a Crosman?
Also, what about the original three categories of Power, Accuracy, and Looks? Do we have these in all classes, or will it be a winner takes all in each class?
Perhaps a "Best of Show" award and some "Honorable Mention" awards?
But if there's less than 10 entries do we need all of these rules? Let's just stipulate the gun and the time limit and forget the rest. Just display your stuff at the end of the build-off to see what everyone did with their Brand X Model Y gun. One big Show and Tell session.
I plink, therefore I am.
