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.

I finally get a 357-8

After a few months looking for an 8 inches barrel Crosman 357 I finally get it. I can pick a new 357-6 off the shelf of my favourite gun store any day but I wanted the 8 inch barrel version so hard.

It was leaking gas, has a few scratches here and there but I don´t mind, I will sand blast the old paint and give it a new paint job. Wood grips to replace the plastic ones and machine a new bulk fill port.

I am shooting the thing with a bulk fill made from various parts that I have laying around just to test and all works fine, I have to turn a new smaller filling port.

Guess I have a lot of work to do...
