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.

1377 refit

Hi I have an older 1377, sliding breech cover type that has had a hard life. I would like to refresh it without going nuts here. I have read and seen video that the steel breech offered by Crosman will work, though the bolt will not cock the gun and the rear cocking knob must still be used. That's fine with me and am considering this addition as it looks like a great upgrade. My understanding is that a new barrel is needed to mate with the breech; question is which one? from the Crosman site I got part #1377-075, the one for the bolt handle model. I also need a complete seal kit, and the not so helpful person at Crosman said they don't have parts for the older models. Is there a cross reference to the newer ones? Thanks so much to anyone who has been through this and cares to share, best, tk
