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.
...The "clone" phrasing is more in relation that it can be a multi stage pumper/PCP concept. The gun will be in bottle mode most of the time; who wants to pump all the time!?
The HDD design is similar to the o-ring idea, certainly got ideas from those, and your HDD. However, imagine having a circular ring that looks like a "V" down the profile, just as thin too. On side of the "V" rests in the gland cut, point facing the muzzle end. Like a "micro-parchute" if you will. The "bounce" causes the other side of the "V" to expand open.
