My new favorite word= Doofer  ;D
x2
i have been calling them doofers too ;D

When are you going to quit Mr. Droid?  :) Btw how does that Anthony trigger compare to the DC one? Also is that carbon fiber tough enough or does it easily peel off? Best regards.
if you asked me i think dc machine makes both the roller triggers

Doofer: Noun, old english, derivative of doofenshusher (german). Often used to describe an item not otherwise able to be described easily. Also known as shshhy-stik, LDC, quiet tube, neighbor-be-gone (NBG).  :D

True, we may as well start a Mini Mike thread.

I may as well put my 2400 on then, just had a mild treatment so far as this is planned to be a ultra light carbine:



CS 2400 with droid engraving and Carbon look trim.
GMAC trigger kit with Anthony R alloy roller trigger
DC Safety
Custom Delrin Doofer
T R Robb Extended Probe and SS Bolt
BlueFork Alloy Breech and TruGlow Front Sight on the way
Muzzle-Mack extended CO2 cap to be modded for the 2400 tube

That plane is taking all my money to the States for Crosmans  :-* :-*   ;)

The AR roller trigger is like Ed says very DC like, I suspect they are from the same machine.

Re the carbon finish, looks very well applied, in fact I can't see how they have done it. I wish the did pistol grips in this finish too.

It's hydro-graphics or hydro-dipping, same way that the camo and other finishes are applied. Only issue with the CF look graphics (film) is aligning the "weave" or fiber-look directions to be parallel with the part or edges.

Here's a couple links for you to peruse, the second link is a co. just 2 blocks from my work, I am gonna have them put the "burl wood" (BMW dashboard) film on a 1399 stock and 2289 fore-grip for my 1377 carbine.

If you are going to do it yourself, please take some photos of the process you use.
I too would like to play with the films myself.  :-*

Good old usps dropped off my p-rod trigger group today. Not to bad ordered it from Crosman last Thursday and here today. Now all I need is my hammer from Mellon and the 1377 might be done for now.

I know you've already ordered it, but you should try the JB Weld hammer method.  My last two I went that route.  It's easy and works great.

Thought about that but I really don't have the tools here to smooth it out. Plus this gives me time to dremel  off the mold marks on the new frame and let the paint dry real good before I need it.
