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.

new poster with Crosman 130

Morning All; decided to get my old Crosman 130 .22 caliber air pistol back into shooting condition. I bought it in the early 60's and has been residing in the footlocker since 1970. It's in great shape but, as usual, won't hold a charge. Found quite a few posts about these and plan to contact a rebuilder. Any recommendations for a rebuild? Thanks.

130 rebuild

I did mine a little while back - same vintage. You can get the seal kits from a number of places. I used Bryan and Associates for mine.

I was easy to do and the gun shoots great!!
