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.

Hold Sensitivity Of A 1377

I have a 1377 carbine that has been inconsistant to the point it ranks as a mediocre plinker and not a target shooter. This has been going on for several months. One shot in the bull, next shot somewhere else, next shot who knows, etc. I looked at all the possible culprits: barrel crown; barrel leade; breech-barrel connection; grips, bolts; barrel bands; pump arm pins; other sighting devices; loads and loads of pellet varieties; alternative benchrests; with and without muzzle breaks; and a different barrel. Everytime I thought I had this carbine licked, it would continue throwing random flyers. When you have so much inconsistancy, you have no clue which pellet was the accurate one, and cannot ever really dial in your sight.

Yesterday I shot the carbine more like a springer. To my suprise this thing is very pretty darn accurate with the right hold. I cannot understand why this is, but I believe I have a 1377 that is hold sensitive. Now watch me shoot her tomorrow and be right back where I started.
