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.

A weekly blog about a current TKO Crosman or Benjamin project.

The next photo article will be a Wounded Warriors PC77 build up and auction/drawing/donation/etc.

Then a pair of Marauder pistols for some accuracy development.

Thanks for checking in!

Never get in a hurry, it only slows you down.

I think the article about the Marauder Pistols will be interesting....

I tested one of them yesterday and it shot the JSB express great ..until it tossed one about .65" high and right. Curious indeed.



P.S. I posted another short pictorial article about rust in a Discovery.
