That was interesting. I noted he pointed to the end of the small tube, under the barrel and said it had a fill station, however also noted at the end of the video,

that it had to be pumped to charge. ????

I hate pumping - however, to get that many shots? Maybe that would be nice to own. Pump it 10 or 20 times and get a dozen shots? I could do that.

Yeah, a bit confusing on whether or not you can do the initial fill from a tank and then top up with the pump (the way it should be, IMO).... I'm curious if the "two power settings" control the hammer stroke (most likely) or if the gun is regulated with two settings (nice idea but unlikely).... He talked about "32 shots with an average velocity of 800 fps" and "up to 1000", so I'm guessing that to keep a narrow ES you would have to top up every few shots.... That is the best way, IMO, but requires a gauge or some kind of pressure indicator to know when you have the reservoir full....

Lots of unanswered questions, unfortunately.... :(

I have an Indy and it can be filled via tank.

From empty, I'm close to 60 pumps to fill.

No power setting on mine.

FX 12 shot mag from full charge will net at least 12 shots.

Usually it will take 3-4 shots, then pump up.

Usually takes 4 pumps per shot. So 1 shot takes 4 to get it back where it was.

Keep in mind folks, these tanks on the guns are very small.

"Fires up to 17 Shots with 40-60 Pumps"

That's a lot of $^*# pumping. Where's my scuba tank?

Looks like it can be filled by tank.

I loves me my pumpers, but think of it this way. 40-60 pumps gets you 4-6 shots on a 1322. Maybe 10 shots on a Benji 392. I would be all over this once I get a few more dollars saved up.... hard to do with my wife though! Ain't it bliss...

This one really has piqued my interest and one I'll be following over the next few months. I also love my pumpers and don't mind the extra pumps per shot; so 3-4 pumps after every shot to get it back to where it was is no problem for me. I've never been a fan of carrying tanks or pumps. Just the gun and pellets will do for me.
