Let’s pick up where I left off. I’ve just introduced you to the Sassy Sandy and HiveSeeker carbines — two 2240KT carbines I set up for my wife and me. My wife’s carbine has the CV Life 3-9X40 scope, which is light enough for her.

WARNING: This conversion changes the operation of the pistol to use air at up to three times the pressure it was designed for. The parts that are installed are strong, but there are other parts in the gun that aren’t changed and could fail when subjected to the higher pressures. Pyramyd Air advises anyone making such a conversion to exercise extreme caution.

And, I might add, not only is it small, it’s also affordable if done in stages.
