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.

Wasn't really looking but found a mint condition Benjamin 397PA with nice walnut stock at a great price. Shoots great, but noticed the rear sight elevation screw was missing. On my 392PA, which also shot a little high, I had to remove the screw and tape the sight leaf to the compression tube with a couple turns of black electrical tape to get it to shoot to point of aim at 33 feet. Now with this new rifle, a virtual twin of the 392, the sight spring is actually sitting flat on the sight body; in other words, it cannot go any lower. Still shoots 3/4 inch too high at 33 feet. Both guns are in pristine condition, with barrels tightly soldered to the body. How can I make the 397 shoot to point of aim, with no vertical adjustment left?
