I have no interest in an airgun that can be powered only by someone else. I haven’t gone beyond a hand pump though I may. But I consider a handpump essential. 22 rimfire outsources the propulsion to a factory somewhere else. What could go wrong? You can cast bullets, but what happens when the propulsion is unattainable? 

The 5mPa between 20mPa (what I pump to) and 15mPa (off regulator) gets me 114 shots with RWS Hobbies in my Huben for punching paper. Only get ten shots with beasts. I find a lot of reasons to shoot light pellets.

I’m 56, 5’6″, 190#,  pumping is a cinch.
