Reply To: Filling a pcp using a hand pump
Alex, so the first time pumping will take a while, make sure to pump only the recommended pumps by manufacturer, too many in rapid succession can harm the seals. Once you get to your guns’s psi capacity you will shoot down to 2000 psi or so, from then on you will use less pumps to get back to capacity. IE a lot less pumps that it takes for your initial fill. I’ve been using a tank but recently lost my source for free air and purchased a Hill MK IV pump and am happy with the purchase. It takes me about 150 pumps to get my gun back to 250 Bar which is about 3,625 psi.
