The Hatsan is good up to 250bar (3500 psi), I got a 4500 psi tank that I am using for my Drozd and could use the most psi I can squeeze out of any PCP hand pump.. I've found a Chinese brand, it's a GX and it's suppose to go up to 4500 psi but I am highly skeptical about that! Check out my other thread for more info: topic52334.html

It's not the rating of the pump but how will you pump it that high? You'll either need to bolt the pump to the floor and use a long lever bolted to the pump handle or to gain a lot of weight to pump it to 4500psi.

The Benjamin Pump is the one that needs a good cleaning and new seals after awhile, but that's not an issue:

The Hill Mk3 you need to watch, the cheapest one out there (listed in a post above) doesn't have the moisture filter, the cheapest source for the one with the moisture filter is here: http://scopesandammo.com/storefront/pro ... lter-p-574

I weigh about 270-272 lbs and I still got some muscle under all that fat! I had no issues pumping up to 3000 to 3200 psi, probably due to fact that I am a heavy weight and did some weight lifting in the past.. I think I should be able to handle it, just worried about the pump failing.. Anyway LOL @ Erics post, that link is to his store! I might just send him an email.

Your big enough, as long as you follow instructions you shouldn't have a problem. As far as I know most pump failures are from over heating, if you don't rush no problem.

Hmm.. I just realized that the FX 4 stage pump should be able to solve that problem but I don't think you can go past 3600 psi unless there is no bleed valve?
