    Hooked up the compressor for the first time,110 version.Everything tight,gauge doesn't move.I'm getting a small amount of air thru the quick disconnect.Does the quick disconnect have to be hooked up to the rifle for the compressor to  achieve pressure?Nothing on the gauge with both bleed's tightened.

    If it isn't connected then there is nothing to pump against and the pressure gauge won't show pressure building.

    Thanks hawkeye.I'm a noobie to pcp's as you can see.Thought the gauge would've went up with both bleed's closed.

    Not sure if it’s the correct way to do it but when I got mine I ran it not being hooked up to a rifle for about 15 minutes first. I ran it u til the temp got to about 50*c then shut it off and repeated. Figured better to break it in not being under load then change the oil out and start filling. Maybe someone else can chime in and say of a better way or not.

    If you want test pressure, use a deadhead in endo of the female quick connect.

    Thanks Guy's, For the hell of it I just filled the rifle from 200 bar to 250 in about 15 seconds! Tomorrow I'll let it run  without a load for 15 min.What a nice little machine

    I agree. So far mine has been perfect. I hope it keeps it up and doesn’t let me down. Good luck with yours.

    IMO there is no reason to run it for so long without a load. When it's brand new it's worth running it awhile to break it in (I'd suggest changing the oil a couple of times quickly), but a minute or two is plenty of warmup on these machines. And maybe the same length of time afterward to blow the water out. Just my opinion.

    I ran mine 15 mins with no load.  Changed the oil and then started to use it.  Fill my guns in less than a minute.  Temp never goes above 42C. Even when the garage is hotter than blazes, and I fill both guns and the spare cylinder all at once.  I also let the water circulate after I shut down the pump until temp falls below 30C.  Keep on top of oil changes.
