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.

I found a gentleman that has his Grandfathers 132 and 137 in to following condidions;

132 w/ white (pearl) grips
blueing very worn but no brass showing through
Tootsie roll looks to be in 90+ condition.
broken, inoperable trigger
pumps and builds pressure...can not fire
no decernable leaks

137 w/ white (pearl ) grips
blueing very worn, no brass showing
tootsie roll in 90+ condition
Pumps, holds air, but does not build up pressure after the 2nd pump
No decernable leaks
Dry fires successfully, but no deceranable extra pressure with more than 2 pumps.

Any idea what would be a fair price for both of us, for each pistol ?
Are Part available? Where ?


I have succesfully rebuilt 3 1377's and done the valve tip shave and piston stiffening
adding 2 + pump power improvement over stock, so I may be able to do the repairs if parts
are available.

These are very tempting, as I seem to have a strong preference for pumpers,
2 70's Blue Streaks, 1 1980 Crosman 766, 3 1377's, 1 Daisy 717

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
