I’m 29 years old, 175 lbs, and 5’8″ tall(not sure how much height would matter but thought I’d share). My Hill mk3 hand pump is my only air source when I needed to pump my Benjamin Marauder, FX Bobcat, and Royale. I’ve always topped off the FX guns at 220 bar and it’s really not to difficult after you get used to it. Starting from 150bar, I would pump 50-60 strokes to 175bar, relief line pressure and let pump cool. Another 50-60 strokes to 200 bar, relief line pressure and let pump cool and finally 40-50 strokes to top it off to 220 bar. I would recommend a Hill Pump mk3 because it is very easy to rebuild.
