Anyone Here Tried This Shock Pump?

Unread postAuthor: Xamllew » Tue Apr 11, 2017 12:35 am

Yeah sorry, another Shock pump thread.

So my last shock pump recently bit the bullet (the entire gauge cracked and fell off) so I was looking for a replacement, hopefully something decent. Not really on a budget but I would like something that can do at least 400 psi and preferably all metal construction.

Has anyone used this one? 600 psi capability is tempting, looks like it has a fairly long pump stroke too.

Can anyone recommend anything else? How about a co2 inflator are they used by anyone here?

Has anyone used this one?


Yes, i got it off ebay a few months ago. I only used it 5 or 6 times. It works fine and it will pump 600 PSI, but if you got a big tank it will take ages. I would say , if your tank is up to 150cc, get it. other wise, i got this - I had to lube it with silicone grease, and replace one O-ring (it comes with some spares & a schrader valve adapter), but it works great, takes me about 20-30 min to pump 780cc to 3000 PSI.

Great, thanks. Much appreciated. my chamber is only 45cc so I think I'll go with it, or perhaps I'll try out a co2 inflator.

If you don't mind, I have one more question about that shock pump, is the frame fully metal or are there plastic parts around the gauge? I ask because my last shock pump snapped at the gauge stem.

Still pretty large for a shock pump if you plan on taking it to the full pressure.

Here's a little mod I had done for comfort on mine before deciding that decanting from my 4500 psi SCUBA tank was a better idea:
