Here is my newest rifle, it is a custom non-PAL .22 cal Artemis PCP with parts from various platforms:
    LR700 breach and barrel
    Stormrider pressure tube, end block and gauge
    Lane regulator
    Filler hole plug
    2 stage modded CR600 trigger blade
    dual barrel bands
    custom bolt handle
    white line butt pad
    Fitted with CenterPoint 4-12x40 AOE in one piece offset mount.

It is stacking JSB exacts at 10 yards, pellet on pellet, and single hole 3/8" max with Stoeger X match wadcutters; It's a plinker with Crosman P hollow points no better than a 3/4 inch at 10 yards. Overall very pleased with this one. 8)
Thanks go to lauchlin and Wesb2007 for all the bits to make this happen.

Have the same setup, definitely a nice gun, very nice pedigree, nice stock, good shot count, and accurate, very light to carry it around.

Finally the job is done?!
That looks great! Congratulations ~

So, you finished your 'winter project ' in advance, and only shooting remains... 8-)

By the way, do you guys need to name this PCP rifle?

Not really~ It's so shiny and smoothy, I didn't see any thing strange like sewing (not checkering), scar (not gauge )....

Nice one DukeMeister!
How did your trigger adjusting go? Can you feel the 2 nd stage?
What did you use for the white line?
So many questions..
Did you a hand pump or electric pump. How many strokes to fill?
Cheers

Interesting results at 10 yards; the Stoeger X match wadcutters shooting dimes while the CPHP's struggle a little.
Does it prefer lighter pellets in general..?

Did the second barrel band increase the accuracy to this level, or did you experiment without a second barrel band at all..?
How did you decide the location of the second band; is there a "sweet spot" along the air tube for barrel harmonics..?

How light is it? I'm looking for a lightweight .22 in PCP that'll shoot dimes at 35 yards.

Lookin' Good Duke..!!!

Went well, no problems at all. The metal is a bit crunchy but drills and taps easily. The new position grub screw is very effective and there is a distinct 2 stage feel, with a light first stage and a dead stop, and light pull with no creep for the 2nd stage. It breaks crisply and predictably.

What did you use for the white line?
I use plastic "name plate" from office doors - salvaged from the rubbish bin at work.

I'm a hand pumper, I fill it in about 75 strokes.

Maybe, the JSB RS and Exacts are 13.4 and 15.9 gr, it likes them both. However, the CPHP at 14.3 are a bit "crunchy" (there's that word again) loading through the magazine whereas the JSB are quite smooth loading. I may polish the breech leede and see how it goes. An air stripper is still on the list.

Did the second barrel band increase the accuracy to this level, or did you experiment without a second barrel band at all..?
Without the barrel band it was throwing flyers. It's a definite improvement.
How did you decide the location of the second band; is there a "sweet spot" along the air tube for barrel harmonics..?
Try and ... well I'm on the first try and it works with JSBs. Various posts say the harmonics are likely tuned to a specific pellet... but look at the different weights of the 2 JSBs.

How light is it? I'm looking for a lightweight .22 in PCP that'll shoot dimes at 35 yards.
It is very light, about 6lbs even with the extra barrel band and accessories (not including the scope, eh).
