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.

Took the marauder pistol out for hunting trip today. I brought along my shot up chrony too haha. The chrony seemed to work fine outdoors. The gun was shot with 15.9 grain pellets, approx 5 inches from muzzle to chrony. Results are with an 8 shot string, averaging 769 fps. Fully adjusted for highest power. Stock Marauder pistol with 17.5 inch barrel. Initiated the gun with two squirrels. Both taken at 45 yards. 20ft/lb light hunter! The gun shoots well and true between 3,000 and 2,000 psi. Shoots to the left upon reaching 1,000 psi. Tomorrow Im going back out for day #2 and then will do a full review with pics. Thanks for your interest. By the way before changing barrels I was getting 639 fps average using the same setup (original 12" barrel) and pellet. Gained an average of 130 fps with barrel mod.
