PCP Pumps?

Unread postAuthor: PeteS » Fri Jan 03, 2014 6:35 am

I saw a PCP rifle pump that claims to have a 3600 psi capacity. It looks like the volume is way better than shock pumps as well. It is apparently a 3 stage pump. I don't remember seeing mention of these here, but maybe I missed it.

What looks like the same pump seems to be sold under the Airforce, Benjamin, and Crosman brand names at prices ranging from $140 to well over $200.

Anyone have experience with these and care to comment on them?

"That really isn't a potato cannon anymore, is it?"

They are far better than shock pumps in terms of pumping capacity, and the more stages they have the less time it takes. In general, you get what you pay for.

There is still a lot of effort involved though, either think of it as free gym or if you're not a fan of the constant humping, consider getting yourself a SCUBA or Nitrogen cylinder that is commercially refilled.

I don't remember seeing mention of these here, but maybe I missed it.


There was a second hand one for sale on the forum recently: offtopic-related/topic25552.html

Depends.... :wink:

If I didn't have a big N2 bottle and a gas booster, I would have bought a Hill pcp pump.

Enjoy your air squats... you might as well be doing pilates, do you even lift?
