Carl Quick's LiteWieght 2240

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.

Shooting a 397..

I read various sites. They all mention to store one pump ( or more ) before you place it away. Also they say not to cock before pumping, others recommend do not cock but leave the action open, others cock but do not load...etc before pumpimg.
Lube only the three pumping pivots and to check the pumper each time before you use it that these three pivot points display lube. The lube, such as Crosman PellGun Lube, will eventually lube the piston as well. Much of this information is not the "official" Crosman manual that is packed with a Benjamin. It is pump ( no more than 8 times for box stock 397..) then cock and load. Fire, and repeat.What is the current recommended proceedure for a box stock 397PA?
Thank you to all !
Pete
