Advantages? I really cant think of any except that its removing a very small amount of weight from the gun.

Most people halfback their guns just for the purpose if making it unique. It can be done your self with just a hacksaw and/or a dremel, or you can take the body to a machine shop and have a very clean, entricate(sp?) design milled.

In my case, the Victor 4 had a stupid "flush" cocking system. Removing the back made the marker easier to cock back.
