Yes it is but MAX PRESSURE was used ONLY to find what max fpe was............I use it around 3500 psi and it pushes 412 gr at 895 fps, 383 gr at 915 fps and 454 gr at 865 fps and are accurate, and is the real beauty of this valve........

Thanks. I really like things to work very well......I have stretched all in my life all the time...............Yes rifle is total custom........Nothing but frame and trigger in it are stock....Actually the hammer TUBE was airforce too......Everything was ordered or procured by me and DOUG NOBLE built the horsepower with his valve. Also his 125 gram hammer which is about .6" longer than stock, and works at minimum PW, actually takes up slop of stock form, so lots left  if needed.

Pics of gun I took 2 weeks ago.Click and will ENLARGE

Doug has a career, a family and a life. He does airgun stuff on the side as he has lathe, mill, welders etc..........He likes experimenting and doing something NEW. Repetitive stuff bores him eventually, as it does all creative people. ......He was interested in my project and is why he built the horsepower for TEXAN as no one had done it as well as  he did..........He really doesn't take orders to work on guns. What he does do is for some friends, or those who purchased his .257 valve and have a problem, he helps. He still sells his .257 valve, I have 3 of them too. Several years ago he did build some .257's for people and he had some for a couple of years. He told me he was going to get the last of that stuff gone and wanted to build  stuff for himself he thought up........So NO he doesn't take orders to fix/repair stuff.   

He works in the FILM INDUSTRY and works at times some very odd and extremely LONG HOURS and weekends......But also at times has a week or more off to do things HE WANTS TO DO or family things...But isn't in the repair business.........

Thanks for Kudos........It was a joint effort between us and the TEXAN...I had my vision, Doug provided the horsepower and had some suggestions after I started shooting it........It turned  out very well.....Looks good,  has more than enough horsepower and I shoot throttled down to 3500 psi and makes 760 fpe off benchrest shooting and is very accurate for and airgun.....Gun will probably show up at the AOA 200 yd EBR BENCHREST in OCT???
