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.
This is not about blame and I don't need anything put right....November 25 2011 at 4:51 PM

Response to Surely this is not right? Any comments appreciated...
just trying to understand the issue.
I don't have a standard CR .177 bolt to compare it with but something is not quite right. The bolts are beautifully made and I don't doubt Don's quality....
But what part is wrong, that is what I'm trying to figure, and by sharing hopefully help the group as a whole as I'm not the first to have a problem with bolts binding in breeches.
This is a Crosman barrel, .177 cal fitted to a AS2250XT King Ratty breech.
Now, to throw a spanner in the works, I have several CR barrels. Why does my silencer adaptor slip on to some easily and on others bind?
Cos what I'm starting to think is maybe the barrel is the error here.
