T2 Pump guide drilling

Is it a smart idea to drill the pump guide to increase the volume chamber of the pump.

I know when I drilled the VLM, it increased the velocity by 15 fps. good idea with the t2?

You have the tooling to precision machine (lathe) Stainless Steel?

If so - sure - give it a try.

I haven't seen it done, it would be something cool to try out if you have the capabilities to do it. I wouldn't recommend doing it with hand tools unless your very crafty or are prepared to buy another one. The best way would be to chuck it up in a lathe, rough drill it then bore it to the desired size. If it doesn't turn out to be beneficial you can always fill in what you took out with some good epoxy or something.

Volumizers were designed for expansion of C02 gas right? I have not heard anyone using CO2 in a long time unless you are using 12ies and I don't think you want to expanded the volume of air space while using 12 Grams. That will completely ruin your shot count. They were also used to lower operating pressure which was good in a way, it would cut out recoil and make for a really quiet Sniper but it would totally eat air. If CCM has done all the calculations on the air chambers and for all intense purposes created a perfect gun, then why would you want to mess with it? Not trying to cause a stink. Just confused.

I did it to my S6. Although the S6 guide rod is fluted, so I basically just bored out the end. I havent noticed too much of a difference, but it is lighter obviously.

That's cool, I would see the biggest benefit being weight but to me it wouldn't be worth it. If you were looking for every possible ounce it would be one of the best ways to drop some weight though.
