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.
A good start would be a Ninja 13 CUIN paintball tank. The "High Pressure" version is 800-850 PSI. You can shim the spring regulator ones up a little to about 900-1000, but if you switch it to belvue (spelling) spring washers you can push the reg up to as high as 1800 PSI. There is a very good podt over on Air Gun Home regarding "shimming Ninja Regulators". Or if you prefer to just pick one up, JDS Airman, and HPA experts both offer tanks regulated to the output of your choice. I have both a Ninja tank I adjusted myself, and an Expert HAP tank. Happy with both, if your gun is already shooting 700 with CO2 at say 70 degrees, I would at least try a standard paintball 13 cu in tank first, as that's right in line with CO2 pressure at about 65-70 degrees. Just my 2 cents.
P.S. Feel free to email me if you like. I built mine, just because I couldn't afford the great work Roy does. When I do have the funds, I would buy one of his creations in an instant!
