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.

Crosman Marlin Cowboy in action

I just uploaded a video tohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnLlzI8xfiw that demonstrates the accuracy of the Crosman LAM 350 "Marlin Cowboy" alongside the Daisy 1938b "Red Ryder." Please have a look and leave a comment on youtube.

In a continuous and unedited clip, I go 6 for 6 shooting the Cowboy at a classic #2 pencil from 15 feet. Admittedly, they're not all destructive/direct hits. But, the pencil moves with every nick and is split twice in the 6 shot sequence.

I posted the video in response to a couple comments I read online in which the reviewer completely misses the target and/or shoots a poorly spread grouping, then says the gun has an accuracy problem. I saw or read about them shooting offhand, outdoors, in poor light, etc. and some even admit their eyes aren't that good anymore or they may have flaws in their marksmanship.

My thought was that pencil killing is more interesting than paper target groups, so maybe there'd be more views. And, since I did/do not have a nice rest handy and lever-action spring airguns would be slow to demonstrate on one anyway...I decided to shoot from a convenient position that is a tad more stable than offhand. I'm shooting from the kitchen counter to the laundry room in my house, leaning sideways into the counter with my elbows on it. I called it semi-supported.

Besides cans, golf balls on tees and pencils (my current favorite), what other objects do you plink by pellet or BB?
