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.

Response to Box ( er.... plastic shrink ) stock 2240 ?

Upped the hammer spring, and a new powerlet.
Took 5 shots to pierce the powerlet.
Fastest I see is 392.

Called Crosman. Told her I'd had the gun about 10 minutes before
I polished the sear, and changed the trigger spring.
Probably blew my warranty, huh ?
She asked me if I had all the pieces parts, and could put it back
the way it was shipped, except for the polish on the sear and trigger of course.
I said yes, I could. She said they would honor their warranty for the full year,
and gave me all the info how to send it back to Crosman, etc.

She then asked where I bought it, and the serial number. I said
She suggested I try an exchange through Amazon.
My exchange period expired two days ago. Damn !
Anyhow, I tried Amazon live chat. Told the guy it mostly works, but not completely,
and the lady at Crosman agrees it's "not right."
He asked me what I wanted. I responded an exact replacement. Another 2240.
He said it should be here Saturday, no charge. ( it's Thursday today )
Then he gave me a link to return the one I have.
The link is a parcel post pre-paid shipping label !!

SO, we don't know exactly why this one took 46 shots to pierce a powerlet,
five shots with near double the hammer spring, and still shoots below 400 fps,
and never will really, but we have a replacement on the way, an EXTREMELY high
recommendation for from me, and a very happy Crosman customer even
if the replacement turns out the same.

Warranty, even after I told 'em I dinked with it's internals. Unheard of !
