Welcome to the CAF!

Tell us a bit more about yourself - where do you live; what air guns do you currently have (pics are always nice); are you a member of any shooting clubs?

:)

Thanks wllm995, I am a Manitoban, my arsenal is pretty small, 350 magnum in .177 and a couple pistols. I don't belong to any clubs , just a backyard shooter maybe some gopher hunting, no clubs.
Been looking at pcp's lately, just trying to get the courage to hit the buy now button.

PCPs are great; but a bit expensive compared to your springer.

But - once you invest in the pump/air tank; you are set up and can buy more PCPs at your hearts content!

You are so right about the extra expense. I guess I am lucky, my brother bought a Marauder, the deal I made with him was that if he bought the Hill pump for the rifle I would build a machine to run the pump so no manual pumping. So I guess all I need is a rifle.

Do tell - I've never heard of a machine to replace good ole arms to use a pump...?

Here's a pic of the Redneck pump, $100 gearbox from Princess Auto and some misc. parts. Built mostly from scrap I had collecting rust, and of course the Mk4 Hill pump. Still working on guards. Questions, feel free.

Nice!

How efficiently does it work?

How long to fill the PCP?

It works great wllm995, to fill the Marauder from 1800psi to 3000psi about two and a half minutes, pump only rises in temp about 10 degrees from start to finish. I have it running at 30 strokes per minute, there is another smaller pulley on the gearbox which would run at about 60 spm but don't see the need to use it.
