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.

39X trigger assy

So I managed to pick up a 392 at a great discount simply because the rear sight was broken. I planned to and did end up putting a nice scope on it. Of course, however, it had the infamous late model 39X horrible trigger plauge. I tried filing on it, but now its to the point that I can file no more without random misfires because the hammer just barely catches on the sear from all the filing I did.

I was wondering if I could send someone the whole trigger assy and get it fixed up for a decent price. I like little bit of travel in a trigger whith a very light crisp break at the end. Even If I can't get a whole reworked trigger, even just a better sear would be great, but I don't know where or who to get them from. Again though, I have very little money for this, so I need something affordeable. If I have to buy a new sear from Crosman, I might as well sell the thing because when you have to pull that hard on the stock trigger it's extremely difficult to hold the gun still to aim.

any response would be appreciated.

Casey

AoA sells a replacement sear for late model Benji rifles.

Also, check this out....

Here are two possibilities.

September 22 2011, 9:12 AM 

1. Start over with a new sear and modify it according to the method described here: http://www.network54.com/Forum/79537/message/1248052895/How+about+a+few+easy+DIY+Benji+mod%27s The result won't improve the creep of the phony-2-stage Benji trigger (none of the popular mod's do), but at least you'll have a much lighter pull.

2. Buy one of my SuperSears from AoA: http://www.airgunsofarizona.com/CustomParts.htm

The result will be exactly the kind of true 2-stage trigger you want.

Steve

Thanks!

I just ordered a supersear. Hope it works out good.

As far as that valve mod on that link, how does one even get the valve out of a 39X?

Removing the valve is easy.

1. Open the pump arm.

2. Remove the trigger assembly (you obviously already know how to do this happy.gif), spring, hammer, and stock lug (which is also what retains the valve and trigger assembly.

3. Pump.

Air pressure will pop the valve out.
