Reply To: Filling a pcp using a hand pump
I use a Hills Mk II pump and find it reasonably easy to pump my Royale 400 & 500, fair enough it takes awhile allowing for the pump to cool and there is only one o-ring in the pump that will eventually fail, the little green one in the final stage but its easily stripped down and replacing it takes me about 5-10 minutes then I am up and going again. I also find that hand pumping the 400 & 500 bottles to 220bar easier than my Daystate Huntsman’s 180cc? tube , don’t know why, but if I am going to a comp. shoot I use a Scuba bottle to fill the rifles, helps to keep the heart rate down, lol and the hand pump is there for a back up. BTW I am 52 and can do with the exercise occasionally.
