I thought the longer barrel would increase FPS.  This isn’t what happened.
 


Looks (from your results) like the gun was “tuned” with the short barrel. You could likely bump up the hammer spring with the longer barrel and get more velocity. But if you then return to the shorter barrel you will likely see a velocity decrease, a louder report and lower efficiency.
