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.
A number of years ago there was a Chinese copy of the FWB model 65 and some sold for $160. There were a number of test and reviews done on it and for the most part the reviews were good, unfortunately because of the cost or some other factors it disappeared from the scene. I would think if there are any attempts made to revive the Crosman Mark 1 it would more than likely be made in China.I would have to believe that if a decent copy is made at a reasonable cost they will sell well, the downside to collectors is it will somwhat diminish the value of their originals.
