Hey gang!
Anyone ever install a hill pump desiccant filter on a Benjamin pump? Pretty sure I just remove the little brass screen at the base and add the appropriate fittings to get it all hooked up! But want to be sure I am doing it right!

Thanks!

Also I am trying to find a DIN 300 BAR female adapter to 1/8 NPT male fitting so I can fill up my Pardini K10 cylinders!

Thanks!

Sounds right. I did a similar mod to my Benjamin pump which has lasted me 2 yrs so far.
It's best to keep them dry, because they rust like heck. The dri-pac is at low pressure so most fitting the right size will do fine.

Thanks Duke!
So vertical orientation isn't necessary, cool!

How much is the filter, and where do I get it. Is it a worth while addition to the pump and what other maintenance do you suggest. Can you oil the tube when it's extended, mine seems to dry but I'm scared to put anything on it and hurting any seals. Any help would appreciated. It's a Benji pump.

I wipe and lube the tube with silicone grease or now I use molykote33 every so often, I can usually feel when it needs it.

It is the best thing you can do for your pump IMO. It's not really possible to lube it, and definitely don't use any combustible oil - silicone or whatever isn't combustible OK, but if you have pump problems, a tear down, polish and reseal is necessary. I bought a re-seal kit for my Benji pump from Scopes and Ammo a while back, but I haven't needed it yet.
Here is a link to the dri-packs I got:

Thanks a lot. The boys and I had the house last night while the wife worked, we cleaned and applied a micro film of silicon grease to the pump. I don't really know if it made a difference, but I feel better about it . Also looked at the link for the filter, will order promptly. Thanks again.

here's a question..for those with fully or partially climate/humidity controlled gun lock ups..do you keep you pump in there?
I know that doesnt help the air moisture content when pumping I would think woudl help the pump itself.
