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.

Crosman 1377 Trigger Mod?

Thru various searches I've found several references to improving the trigger on a Crosman 1377 pistol: Lighter spring, super-sear, two stage mod, etc.

For the money, what's the most bang for my buck? I don't intend on formal competition with this pistol. I'd just like to improve the trigger somewhat.

Bang for the buck will be a lighter spring

IIRC the one I put in mine was less than $1.

Additionally you might want to experiment with reduced trigger engagement. You could superglue a piece of rather soft metal to the sear (to space the sear down from the tube) and then file it down as necessary to get a safe amount of engagement.

And of course polishing all engagement surfaces, including the hammer face.

Better bang for the buck

Just take a pair of pliers and compress a few of the coils and keep testing the trigger until it's where you want it.

I've got my 1389 that way, but I find the trigger set inconsistent

It seems that sometimes the spring just doesn't place the sear the same each time b/c it is at the end of it's travel.

Sometimes the trigger is super light and sometimes not so much.

Thanks, Guys!

Sounds like a new (weaker) spring & polishing might be the way to go.

It Worked! Thanks!

I ended up completely removing the trigger/grip housing. It was the only way I could get that little spring and ball bearing back in place. I'm just glad I didn't lose either one.

I polished the contact surfaces and applied a little moly grease. I ended up "smashing" the spring while testing the trigger until it felt right for me.

Put it back together and WOW it's a new pistol now. I still don't like the narrow trigger, but I'll find a fix for that later.

Thanks, again.
