Response to I certainly didn't mean to misrepresent your results, Devin, but only to...
And to be clear, there is definately something to be had with the absence of hammer bounce. Maybe it's possible to work upon the design of the Marauder HDD in creating something with less "interference". I wish I would have taken note of the settings on my rifle when I tuned the power down slightly without the HDD. I could have maybe connected some dots to gain a more solid understanding of what other effects the HDD had on my rifle which caused the slight power reduction and lengthening of the "sweetspot", since the shot curve with the HDD used considerably more air before returning to the beginning velocity. It's as if, beyond debouncing, the HDD changed the dynamics of the fireing cycle and relationship between the valve and hammer strike.
Something I'm guilty of (often enough) is having high expectations. I really thought you had come up with pure 100% free lunch with the HDD and I was disappointed to get anything less. It really isn't fair for me to say the entire thing was a flop, and never meant to do so. I'm just looking for my experimentation/experience to stand on it's own for what it is just like all of the counts of flawless results people have with the HDD, and with any other product for that matter. It's no secret that there are benefits to reap from your HDD provided it "meshes" well with the rifle. I just happened to be an unlucky one with a Marauder that didn't get along with it, proven to myself when I tuned to the FPS of my original HDD string and got the string with only one less shot, a couple FPS tighter spread and had about 75 more PSI in the tube.
To Paul: I'm really sorry for causing this huge tangent to your original post.
