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.
...length closed is 29" and with the stock open all the way it is 33.5" long. Feels like a bullpup, even though it is not. Very solid system. Feels rigid in the hands. Performance wise, it is truly remarkable. More than I planned, actually. I like power, so it will stay at the level of 48ft/lbs give or take a couple ft/lbs using the 28 grain pellets getting 20 shots on a fill.
One thing that should have been designed in to it, or two, is a power adjuster and a gauge for valve pressure. There is room in the design to add a gauge... Adding a power adjuster could be done, but more headache than needed.
