Things I liked: This pump is built solid.After reading all the other reviews on the different pumps I decided to go with this one.When it came to how hard it was going to be to use this pump I was already prepared after reading others reviews.I try not to let my rifle (Marauder),get under 2000 psi.When it gets to that level it usually takes about 50 pumps to get it up to 3000 psi again.I found that it wasn't as hard as others were saying to pump up my rifle.I am 225 lbs in weight and if I bend at the knees and put my full weight down on the shaft,it is not so bad.

Things I would have changed: Relocate the holding pin which is located on the base of the shaft.

What others should know: (Like others said before me),you have to be careful with a holding pin on the base of the pump (which holds the pumping shaft secure to the base for transporting purposes),when pumping your rifle.If not you can damage it on the down-stroke of pumping your rifle.Many customers complain about the length of the hose being too short and wishing it was longer.I think it was designed that way as a safety measure.The hose holds extremely high pressure and if it was any longer ,and "Murphy's Law" came into play,than some serious injury can be expected with that high pressure hose whipping around.

Things I liked: nothing

Things I would have changed: make repair parts

What others should know: This was my first pump. The price of this pump was my deciding factor, BIG mistake! You cannot get repair parts for it,yes it comes with some parts but the parts i need replaced cannot be found, you can have a machine shop make the part but that cost more. I highly suggest finding a pump that repair parts are actually easy to find. My results on this is a Hill pump which according to my research is the only pump with repair parts readily available. My rating and value reflect my dissatisfaction with this pump.

    Things I liked: It is hard to beat having a hand pump to fill your gun and while it is rather inexpensive to maintain and fill a tank to be able to easily fill your gun the cost to get one is as much as another gun... long story short you can fill your gun anywhere any time without having to worry... awesome!

    Things I would have changed: i would like to see some type of swivel and clamp for the hose to make it a little easier to store... really not that big a deal

    What others should know: It takes a little effort to put 3000 psi into an airgun so don't think you can get it done fast.

    Things I liked: It seems to be efficient in terms of how much effort is needed to pump.

    Things I would have changed: It needed Teflon plumber's tape on the threads of the adapter . Otherwise it leaked. They should have included this. I found out about this fix on a PA forum...

    What others should know: Apparently they Do Not spend very much time or money on technical writing (poor instruction manual).

    Things I liked: built like a tank, very sturdy pump, pumps to 3000 psi with out any problems,

    Things I would have changed: include adapters or a fosters female quick connect.

    What others should know: it will take you most of the morning to pump up your reservoir from empty so make sure you eat a hearty breakfast cause this will burn all the calories you just packed on, a work out and a half.

    Things I liked: Works well to 200 bar

    Things I would have changed: Nothing.

    What others should know: Don't let your air reservoir go completely empty. Charge it when you get to the point where your shots are lacking. It takes a lot of pumping to fill a completely empty cylinder. Once you approach 200 bar (3000 lbs.)the pump gets pretty difficult to compress so save yourself any unnecessary pumping.

    Things I liked: Easy to set up out of the box. Heavy duty design. Clear instructions and parts list. Spare o-rings. It's a workout! Connecting to my Hatsan cylinders was easy!

    Things I would have changed: Parts availability - if you bust the bleeder valve, good luck getting a replacement. Also the spare o-rings are great, but they are not labeled and are loosely bagged together - hard to tell what is what, and where it should go. A tether to help stow the hose when not in use would be great - so the hose isn't just laying on the ground in the middle of the way.

    What others should know: My pump was manufactured and packed as a Hatsan product. If you are expecting Air Venturi, you may be in for a surprise.... But is the EXACT SAME THING AS THE G4 they just stamp a different label on it and stuffed it in new packaging. So no worries. Fills my Hatsan air cylinders with some sweat, but it's a good little cardio workout. It is not hard to pump correctly and it does not take very long - it is just a matter of work haha. I am Impressed with the worksmanship of the pump. I am also impressed with Pyramyd - very impressed. There was an issue with an item I received all the way in Maui, but they were customer service world champs and took care of me from half a world away. You can trust Pyramyd to make things right. Now get to pumping so you can get back to shooting!

    What others should know: Pyramyd Air stands behind the products it sells. They resolve any questions or problems that happen in a timely manor. I recommend Pyramyd Air for any air gun and accessory that you would need.

    Things I liked: Appearance, study, ergonomics, ease of use, longer air line, and simplicity. Not to forget spare o rings just in case.

    Things I would have changed: Nothing really.

    What others should know: I have the air force pump for almost 10 years now. I purchased this because my air force pump finally broke. I hope this product will last just as long or longer. I have repaired my air force pump and it's actually working just as good as brand new.

    Things I liked: Smooth pumping. Very well built. You will break a sweat pumping your PCP.

    Things I would have changed: Need a shorter HP line or a 90 degree swivel fitting. The HP line just sticks out and will kink if you try to fold it up.

    What others should know: Heavy! But all hpa pumps are.

    What others should know: It take me about 60 pumps to pump from 2000 psi to 3000 that's 30 accurate shots from my marauder, I depend on it, the nearest scuba shop is 45 miles away.

    Things I liked: I was hesitant to buy this pump after reading some of the negative reviews.I think the people that had problems with it got a lemon.Mine worked flawlessly and no leaks.Seems very heavy duty and well made. PCPs are brand new to me and this was my first experience,I was pleased that everything went very well and it was very easy to use. Now grant it,I cannot comment on the longevity of this pump since I just got it,But mine worked great and did what it was supposed to do.

    Things I would have changed: Make the platform for your feet larger

    What others should know: Worked great for me so far,And the new Hatsan Galatian rifle is an awesome airgun! If your on the fence about a PCP,,,, GO FOR IT! Im sold!

    Things I liked: Good for bk up. Can't go wrong having a manual pump. Better have some elbow grease.

    Things I would have changed: Lighter for sure.

    What others should know: Just do yourself a fovor and get a air tank, preferably a 4500 psi 90 cu I. So u don't have to refill Ur tank every day. A big tank will give I at lest 60 to 80 fills. And a whole lot more fun.
