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.
stroke length. Look at a benjamin cartridge valve, and imagine much of that brass removed..you'll get an idea of what I've done. It's based on James P's skeleton valve concept. It definitely helps the pump effort and efficiency, and allows a second shot within 20 fps of the first..with no pumping between those two shots.
Tell me about the two shot shuttle for the integrabase..THAT'S a great idea!
