Gary Hindman's Custom Model 113 and Model 114

Both guns are bulk fill. They have a silver finish on the barrel and the CO2 tube. Stocks have been redone to a natural finish. Simmons .22 3x9x32 AO silver scope and rings are connected using IA mounts

Model 113- Predator Polymags .177- 5-shot groups @ 25 yds. =.440" C-C - Avg. velocity 697 fps 25 shots ( high 721 fps)

Model 114 - JSB Exacts .22 - 5-shot groups @ 25yds. = .54O" C-C- Avg.velocity 654 fps. 25 shots (high 660 fps)

Gas velocity - port hogging relationship

I don't have much experience with airgun mods, also haven't been on the forums for quite a while.

I got to wondering about opening up ports. Seems that where you have a large volume chamber and a small orifice for air to pass through on its way to being exhausted, the restriction would work under the venturi effect. This would cause the gas to speed up exponentially at point of restriction, effectively causing a ram induction force into exhaust, increasing volume more quickly and speeding gas flow.

If that transfer port or whatever is opened up then there would be a loss of venturi effect and loss of gas velocity. Has any research or data crunching been done regarding this, to show where an intended improvement actually causes a net loss in pressure or gas velocity behind pellet? I can see advantage to smoothing contours or sharp edges however it seems there's a danger of backpedaling when hogging ports. Apologies if this has already been over thunk and discussed ad infinitum...
