what can be done to lighten the stock mr1? I've been thinking about getting one to build a scenario gun out of it. The other day i got to play with one and they are freakin heavy, looked up the weight and they are close to 4lbs

What can be done to lighten up the gun

remove "mag", bottom line and asa and replace with a remote

You could also halfback it. Though unless you replace it with lighter material, that would ruin it's looks.

No, not cut the body in half. This is a halfback job. (http://www.spyder.tv/forums/showthread.php?t=17455) Compare. (http://www.spyder.tv/section/products/vs_series/vs2.html)

basically what irish is saying is take the body and make each corner a quater of a rectangle then remove the quater that has the cocking pin sticking through it

Delrin bolt, Delrin hammer, J&J Ceramic 14" barrel.

That'd help make it lighter.

Mask clearance for red-dot sights, or just looking down the gun easier.
