Most PCP rifles including all Daystates and many FX rifles have male Forster connectors on their fill ports. Unfortunately the Coltri/Daystate pumps have a DIN connector on the fill hose because they were originally produced as dive compressors used to fill SCUBA tanks (and still are). It would have been great if Daystate had modified the fill hose so that it ended in a male Forster so that we could use our standard female/female microbore hoses that most of us already have, but that's not how it is, so you will need an adaptor. Again: be careful about using BSP threaded connectors because these are only safe with BSP; NPT will fit (sort of) but you suffer potential risk of explosive failure.
