I ususaly lie the gun down on the ground to fill, with the hose staight, but recently i have a bipod.If I stand the gun up on the bipod and hook the hand pump up, being now the hose will be up a little,will it be a little harder to pump?

If that makes any sense!

Thanks

Just avoid a sharp curvature to your hose. As pressure increasees in the hose the straighter it will naturally want to become. As fsr as effort of pumping is concerned you wont notice a difference. Just minimize hose curve as not to topple over your gun. Hope that answers what you are asking.

That's what I thought, no sharp curvature...

Thanks Wolf!

Just out of curiosity, does it take a lot of pumps to fill the gun? And the more you pump, does it take more effort?

It's definitely an upper body workout depending on the starting pressure and the volume size of your tank. An SCBA,SCUBA or shoe box compressor would be the way to go IMO.

I could be off a bit but last time it was around 85 pumps to get it to 2800 psi, but my reservoir is only about 85cc and yes as you get past 1000 psi it starts to give more resistance.but this pump is a lot easier to pump then say the Benjamin! I'm only 5'8" 165 lbs and it's not bad but i'm fit. If you are lazy(have money) or think about it to much,might not be your thing.

Since I've been shooting at 2800 lately, one of those little Ninja tanks would be perfect to!

I really pondered this question before I bought A Daystate wolverine with 300cc tank that fills to 3700 psi. I could not find anyone that filled this with a hand pump just remarks about it not being possible.

I bought the gun and was delighted to say it's not that hard or long to fill this with a Hill pump. Usually pump to equalize pressure ( 10-12 strokes then 50 strokes 1-2 minutes rest (the pump just feels slightly warm) and another 50 strokes, then rest and another 20-30 strokes depending on where I stopped shooting).

I do not have a compressor or scuba system and really thought before I got the gun I would invest if needed but after receiving the gun and filling by pump I cannot see myself getting into compressor or scuba setup. And yes I do shoot quite a bit but with 3 different PCPs (love them all) The other 2 just fill to 3000 psi.

I am posting this simply because I really deliberated getting the Daystate because of this dilemma and hope to easy some minds about getting a 250 bar fill PCP. Hope this helps.

I guess I'm one of the lazy shooters. Just pumping up my bicycle tires is hard on my back. A Compressor is necessary for me - or simply shooting only my HW springers.

If you have back problems that's not being lazy:) Everyone gets lazy.
