@spysir and @scrufhunter, my rifle's gauge was consistent with the pump's gauge the first two times I was able to fill using the pump.  I have bled off the excess air from the pump each time I've detached the hose from the gun, then closed the bleed valve.  The pump has been fully emptied prior to each attempt to fill the gun.

Others in the thread have assured me that the Foster fitting looks OK (though it looks very irregular to me, but I'm no engineer) but I've only pulled the fitting off and given it a rookie's cursory examination.  Sounds to me like I need to go deeper by disassembling the fitting to check the valve there.  Heck, I don't even know if there's a secondary valve I need to examine further into the reservoir – @spysir, you caught me on that one and I am guessing there's nothing beyond the outer fitting that could be causing this problem.

I have my work cut out for me based on all y'all's input.  I'll post an update when I know more.
