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.
if i still had access to a lathe i'd build one. this is for a rifle i gave my grandson a few years ago. we were plinking saturday & with that high capacity clip the CO2 went pretty quick. it's not that big a deal. i'll keep my eyes on the classifieds & see if one turns up so long as the hammerli cartridges will work. i haven't looked but i've not seen the crosman bulk cartridges in a while. i'm on my last crosman cartridge in my hammerli!! unfortunately he left this rifle at his grandma's ( my ex ) & it must have been put away wet as there is some pitting on a small area of the barrel. i explained to him the value of proper maintenance & think he got the message. this is a discontinued 1077 W. the other grandson that got one of these is a hard core hunter & knows how to care for his guns.
