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.
i have to agree. we wont be seeing anything that's actually a huge improvement over whats already available or mass marketable because the current design already works so well. that's why it hasn't really changed over a hundred years or whatever
with everything that's been said i can't think of any reason not to just buy a benjamin gun and do a couple of my own simple and cheap mods to it. they're great to work on because there's only like 3 screws holding it together and the valve pops right out the back. i hate tinkering with my crosman 1377 and 2240 because you have to dismantle the entire *#%&@ing thing just to change an o-ring
i just wish it were easier to do a flat faced valve/piston with them. then they'd be very close to perfect IMO
