Here is my just arrived via CP from a member here (TY!); Webley Alecto/Zoraki HP-01 Light .22 Pneumatic Pistol with a 12 inch barrel and an added folding foregrip and Red Dot on top.

Will have a chance to test her out over the weekend - looking forward to some superb accuracy and power!

Video Review on this model:

BTW - does anyone have an idea of approximately how long you can safely leave it pumped up three times before you risk damaging it at all...?

:?

It's springers that carry those worries. The theoretical answer is virtually forever. In fact, many recommend storing pneumatics with a pump or two (on, say, a 10-pumper) in the tube.

why would you want to leave it with three pumps in it for a long period of time :?

In order to have it ready for some light pest control on a friends property without the noisy sound of it being pumped up while in the field...

:wink:

Well - I left it pumped up TWO times overnight the previous night and went to fire it last morning...and NOTHING; no pressure at all - just the trigger being pressed back and nothing happening!

So I tried last night to pump it up with THREE pumps and went to fire it a few minutes ago - and again NOTHING; no pressure at all and just the trigger being pressed back...

So - it appears that my Zoraki will NOT hold pressure for a long period of time...

:(

you said you only wanted to leave it with some pumps for a short period
my impression was a couple minutes in between shots at a time not overnight :? :roll:
you may have messed up the valve, is there any air hissing out when you pump it..

Well she is working just as well as ever at 3 pumps - still hitting very hard!

I guess I will try shorter periods of time and see how it goes... :?
