I think that getting a pump that is rated to around 3000psi upto 300psi would be easy,very easy.

Should be quite easy, i wonder how many strokes are needed to gain 3000psi in an Airifle tank.

THat will take too long to fill up.
You are better off building your own out of 15mm copper tubing.

Even to 300psi with the stand stirrup pump?I can easily fill the chamber to 160 with a few pumps of my other pump and change over from there to the stirrup pump.The chamber volume isn't very large.

That was the name of your gun?My bad!I can Change it if you want?

I do love the look on peoples faces when you blow a hole in something they don't expect it to,like when I shot one of my guns at a 2x4 with a lead sinker to show a friend the power,there jaw drops and the look is indeed priceless.

I hope this isn't so bad to work with,but I already had a few problems When I was epoxying some of the fittings. . .But I think it's going to work out just fine!Hopefully.

Ohh I also made some awesome round for it,I'll let you see all the pictures before everyone else does on MSN tonight if your on ok.I might even show ya how to make them :wink: .

What do you guys think of a stirrup pump?Used for a Air Rifle,adopted for an Air Musket.Musket such a good word


hmm the adapter fitting might be tricky and it would take ages to fill, but i would get it because it gives you the option to go super high pressure :twisted:

ti
me to get a shock pump and some biceps


Stamina and triceps would be better.

Stirruppumps take for ever to fill up the reservoir of an airgun, most switch to HPA bottles to refill.
That must mean something

well maxus was planning on using one a while ago untill i metioned the thread thing, i'm not sure if he did in the end. i'm under the impression that each air rifle manufacturer has a different thread but i could be wrong.

It would make sense if they each had a different thread. . .Just so they buy there product to fill it up and not a competitors.

I think I will buy in a Shock pump,I will use my large capacity pump to get it to 160psi and from there onwards use the shock pump.

The gun is going to be tested today!But I won't be able to get some info/updates up on it until a bit later as I'm not going to be here.I'm going to be having the time of my life at Big Day Out 2008!
