No bad at all pumping up a 13 CI tank to 3000lbs. Went a lot easier than I thought it would be. Now just waiting on my high pressure hose assembly to go from tank to gun. It is on the slow boat from China. May order one from Amazon Prime as when I get a higher & bigger regulator tank I will need second one anyways. CHEERS!

Don't forget a water/oil filter for your hand pump.

I hand pump a 13cu tank and after a couple months I stripped it all down and found water in the tank and corrosion starting on the tanks regulator brass parts. However no water made it into the QB78 air tube. But I'm sure it would just be a mater of time until water did make it into the gun.

I got a $20 air filter from https://airgunarcheryfun.ca/ to go with the Bull hand pump. Works well.
Downside is it takes more pumps to fill the extra air space in the hose and filter to equal pressure as the tank. 25 pumps as opposed to 7

Yes that's the pump I got as well. Thanks for the advise and yes will get a filter. Little 13Ci tank will be good to truck around should I decide to or I can switch it back to CO2 caplets. At least them first pumps are easy. :lol: CHEERS!
