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.

Seal Kits

December 29 2008, 2:28 PM 


You can also try B&A @; they have pretty much every part you can imagine. Re-seal kits come with all the parts, diagrams, and instructions. They may not be cheap though, I think I paid about 28$ for my 760 kit a couple years ago. But the thing still holds air today like it did when I got it as a gift in 1977.

Take Care,

alan at

always fast returns and very reasonable. if this is a self cocker and you've never done one, my advice is to send it to alan. if it's the later one you have to cock yourself, you should be able to do it. they are easy.

Self Cocker Difficulty?

January 2 2009, 5:30 PM 

What is in the self cocker that makes it so difficult? I have an old 760 self cocker that needs resealing. Althoung I never technically 'resealed' it I have disassembled it and re-asssembled it with no problems. I was using the parts from 2 guns to get one to shoot and it did for a while, but now it gave up. I was contemplating whether to send it to Alan or just order a kit.

self cocker

January 2 2009, 11:31 PM 

the self cocker uses the same type valve system as several of the pistols made by crosman and the 140/1400 rifles. the difficulty to me is the small cap at the rear of the valve assembly. it has a small oring type seal inside that is not round like a regular oring, but has a flat inside, outside, front and rear. i think i've heard it called a quad seal. (not sure on this) you have to get the old seal out of this cap and replace it with the new seal. the old seal is usually hardened and hard to get out. this has to be cleaned very thoroughly, then the new seal has to be placed inside this cap. i don't know what tools alan uses to do this but i've had a lot of problems with this one little seal. the others aren't bad at all just this one. if this one doesn't seal properly the gun will not self cock and the seal will not hold.
