Reply To: Hand pumping small vs large air reservoir
even my brocock concept .22 at 11 foot pounds will do 70 shot with out having to do a refill.it has a very small air tube. it only takes about 4o to 45 pumps.i fill it from 165 bar and shoot down to 100
my day state air wolf wolf is rated to 230 bar but I fill to 180 bar and shot down to 80 bar. I get 220 shots at 15 foot pounds .177
and it has a 500 cc bottle.
a bigger bottle will always take longer to pump. it takes more are volume and more pumping to fill a bigger bottle.
a smaller bottle is much quicker to fill up to needed pressure.
if you pump during a shooting sessions you air pressure will spike if you do it quickly and give u false readings as it cools down.
always good to wait a few mins at least half way through to start pumping again.
if you go with a gun like the air wolf you can go many sessions with out having to pump at all!
trust me not having to pump during a session is the best way to go
