By edgar from USA on 2011-11-15 23:37:16Things 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.

By Edwin from USA on 2012-07-10 08:53:13Things 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.
