    I am new to the PCP side of things and have a question I hope you fellas can help with. I have a new Marauder F&T. In the manual it states that the rifle should be stored with "some" pressure in the reservoir. This is to keep the seals forced against the sealing surfaces. That makes perfect sense to me. But, how much is "some" ? The max pressure is 3000 psi. Can I put the rifle up after shooting with say…… 1500-2000 psi left in the reservoir? Or would it be best to run the pressure down to a lower level? I know probably elementary. But I'm learning with this one.

    Thanks

    No problems putting it away at that pressure.  Or max pressure for that matter.

    I often fill my guns the evening before so I can grab and go in the morning.

    Thats what I needed to know. I'm sure I'll have more questions along the way…..and soon most likely.

    Thank you for the help.

    Welcome to AGN and the Airgun world.  A lot of terrific people out here.

    FYI, most of the time when I am done shooting, I fill my rifles back up to max pressure before I put them back on the rack.  I have been doing this for two decades with no issues, so I don't think you will have any problem putting it away charged to anywhere within normally recommended fill pressures.

    I also store mine at shooting pressure but I'll put a piece of painters tape on the gage where the pressure is so I can tell when I pull it back out if I have any loss of pressure . Enjoy your new toy it won't be the last lol . BTW I have the 22 & 25 mar.    Enjoy Darell

    It says stored with some pressure.  Meaning what it says. Some.  Can be 500 psi, 1000 psi, 2000, 3000. Whatever. Doesnt matter how much pressure is stored inside. As long as there is some pressure. You do not want to stored it with no pressure. If your stored it for months with no pressure. When you try to fill the gun. There will be a leak. So stored with some pressure in the tube to avoid leaks.
