Funny how nobody has given you any input on your original question. Things went off topic concerning the trigger. I have a PP800. Its just a regulated bandit. I have the gun dialed in with a LW barrel, great shot count and velocity. I use a hammer bounce device. My hammer is in free flight for probably a half inch but I still notice the hammer inertia thing you asked about. The gun just doesn't have a clean snap like a well tuned PCP. I have been debating about making a lighter hammer for it and seeing if that might help. You have to understand that SPA (the true maker of the gun), uses the same hammer in their CO2 and PCP guns. I think they even use the same spring. My theory is this. They were using that hammer and spring to crack the valve when you had it aired up to 3,000psi unregulated. Now you have your reg set at maybe 70 or 80bar? Way too much hammer, spring or both. I will address this when I get time.
