Some tuning and testing...

Response to Re: 1322 PCP - the skeletonized valve doesn't leak anymore...

The extra volume did help, no doubt, but I'm now facing another reality... I think - small pump volume. There's probably only so much you can do with 1.1 cubic inch at 80% atmosphere. But still, it has better performance (efficiency) than anything else I've got... and with a 12" barrel.

With 4 recharge pumps it made 5.7 fpe, with 3 it was 4.7. The prior version (smaller valve) did 5.2 fpe with 4 recharge pumps. I am surprised and impressed with the ES and accuracy. It makes a nice 10m pistol.

Some other notes...I cranked-in the RVA as far as it would go and got 578 fps or 11.8 fpe from a full charge. It didn't empty the valve but I'm not going to re-spring to dump 17 pumps. I took a second shot when it was tuned for 4 recharge pumps and got 404 fps... 3 fps higher than the average first shot. That's pretty nice. There are lots of ways to tune these and I'm still getting my feet wet...
