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.
Sometimes, the only way is to bite the bullet, decide you are going to destroy something, buy the replacement, and go for it. ( a handful of replacement screws ? )
The worst anti-tamper screws are those one way flat blade style.
There's only three ways I know to get those out.
1. drill off the head, and extract the threaded stud that results.
2. You really don't want to know. ( involves a welder )
3. Make an impact tool, but it doesn't work if they are too tight, or glued in, and usually destroys the screw anyway.
