My 1322 has scoped, changed barrel to 14inch, has steel breech and high flow port.

After well broken in, it shoots super accurate now.

However I bought a 2289 backpacker at the moment ( actually at the time I bought my 1322, I was wanna to get a 2289, however I couldn't find it anywhere... ).

What I am thinking is while I got the 2289, I exchange the above things from my 1322 to the 2289 and shouldn't affect the accuracy I currently have with the 1322, right?

BTW, anyone can tell me if the valve kit of the 2289 is as same as the 1322 or have a higher output?!

The backpacker will unfortunately have a detuned valve, in order to keep it under 500fps with the longer barrel. Once you do the swap of the barrel etc from your 1322,if you find it still shooting well under 500fps, you could also swap the valve from the 1322, which is not detuned, or you can take the 2289 valve and fill the detuning hole they've drilled in the back by tapping the hole and threading in a small bolt with loctite, then cutting the head off, or simply filling the hole with jb weld.

Forgot to mention the obvious, that as you've probably discovered on the 1322,you may need to cut the hammer spring a little shorter in order to keep it under 500fps with the 14" barrel. This will make it impossible to shoot over 500fps, but may also mean you only can pump it 8 or 9 pumps before it starts retaining air after firing. The nice thing about it is you won't need to pump as much!
