Very cool, Joe and certainly looks easy to pump.... I wonder if the slight velocity increase is the temperature going up as you pump it?.... If the pump and valve are starting out cold, the pressure would drop more between pumping and shooting than once they warm up.... What happens if you shoot until it stabilizes in velocity and then pump it, set it aside for 1/2 hour, and then shoot (after the temperature has dropped again)?.... My guess is the velocity will be back to what it was on the first shot (under 600) or slightly lower....

Joe the video quality was just fine. Amazing work! This is definitely beyond my abilities and I am so impressed at what you've accomplished. Seems to me you've outdone the big manufacturers' offerings with your final product. You should be very proud to say the least.

Very interesting project!

The butterfly pump is something different.

The whole thing looks very good and the video allows us to see it in action.

You are of course right Bob. After about five to ten shots, it settles in to about 6 fps spread. The pump air intake valve is not reliable. sometimes it takes a few inches of travel before it seals. I have a new design pump head on paper that will close within a half inch of stroke. Also it,s only one inch long, as apposed to three inches for the current pump head. So the new pump head and shaft will allow for two more inches of travel, almost two more ci of air. So likely will put it over 650 fps, However,,,,it'll be harder to pump. Not uncomfortably hard, just harder than it is now. I cant tell you how hard it is now in pounds, but just about the same or a little harder than the Daisy 953.

Good job Joe.

You know pantenting isn't that expensive to protect a great idea like this one.
Good job again

Great vid, Al. Great to see your work in action; also great to see you in action (as one who has only been around for a few years). Keep that digital file; it's as good as a copyright on the technology - no lawyers required in this country.

How's that home reno going, by the way. Great to see you out in the "workshed" again.

I'll save him the trouble of saying it yet again; this is a collaboration with Watertown, and the innovation is in the valve and the trigger, not so much the levers. I mention this as it seems some are confused, most notably Leonard who posted a critique of the notion of the dual lever design being patented in his forum... pointing out that it was patented some years ago. It can be a bit challenging following this SSP project through several different threads so understandable that some are sidetracked, but the power plant is apparently the really innovative thing here. I'm dying to know about that in detail, but of course not until Joe and Watertown have done what they can with getting it sold.

Joe- you've done an amazing job on that rifle - well done. Nice to put a face to a name- you look not a bit like your avatar - good thing. He looks like a guy I used to work with- we oft times wondered about him.
I agree this rifle needs exposure, but not until patented. I know nothing of this, but I sincerely think you should look into it.
The longer stroke would be nice- what an excellent idea for a field rat rifle - just a few (50) more fps would be nice & it would about match my HW98.
