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've heard it described that the sweep of a gauge can help indicate its accuracy. Something about a 0-5,000 psi gauge will give different readings than a 0-2,500 psi gauge when reading the same actual pressure. What I read was that the accuracy of the gauges has a sweet spot of sorts that it's calibrated to where at a particular pressure it's dead on. Other places along its sweep of pressures will be less perfectly accurate and this varies per gauge and per their maximum pressure variation. The widest sweep or range of gauge will give the least accurate pressures, at least in the inexpensive gauges. A narrower range of pressures may be more accurate, depending on quality. So quality, how they're calibrated and maximum pressure reading sweep play a part.
