    Things I liked:

    Small compact unit, multi voltage capable, great carry case for traveling.

    Things I would have changed:

    Pressure switch that prevents power on with pressure on line, longer pressure line so your gun doesn't practically have to sit on the compressor when filling and relocate moisture bleed drain so you don't have to hang unit over table edge, hold in air or prop up in order to open the drain.

    What others should know:

    Be very aware of pressure being released before starting compressor. While filling a rifle (my 5th time using my new compressor) I accidently pressed the on/off button and the compressor stopped. Without thinking I pressed it again to turn back on (while under pressure). It did blow the 30 amp fuse (as expected) which I replaced but not before a puff of smoke and a loud squeal came from below the amperage LED readout (control circuit card). After the new fuse the fans start and run but only a loud squeal is heard, no LED readout and compressor does not start. After some online research I discovered that smoking the control card before the fuse blows is common. I am going to order 2 new cards and keep one for a spare as I'm sure this could happen again. This could have easily been prevented if a simple pressure switch was installed that would prevent power to the on/off switch when pressure on the line was detected.

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Much improved over my Nomad I. Solid build. Very smooth operation. Low level fan from the inboard inverter runs constantly when unit is plugged in keeping continuous flow of air internally. New High Speed fan now operates when the main Power/Reset is switched on. This is an improvement over the lower speed fan on the Nomad I. A second Run switch now activates the compressor. A new blue LED light has been added and has a separate switch. Very smooth operation and the updated manual is also better. Single unit in the II vs two-piece unit in the Nomad I is much better and a carrying case for portability is great.

    Things I would have changed:

    I can't think of too much that I would have changed on the Nomad II. Unfortunately, lubrication is still needed via a small hole on the compressor. I would have preferred not having to add oil periodically but it is not a big deal. The improved high-velocity blower fan seems to do the job, which might be even good enough to eliminate the need for oil but better safe than sorry. Manufacturer recommends 2-3 drops of lube after every 5 fills. Fair enough.

    What others should know:

    Overall, my Nomad II is vastly improved over my old Nomad I. Thanks, Pyramyd Air for the opportunity to upgrade my Nomad I. So far I have only run four fills using my new unit, having just returned from a trip that prevented me from using my Nomad II unit immediately. So far I am very pleased with the improvement in design and operation. This is a solid unit in construction and operation. I love the convenience of being able to immediately refill my Hatsan AT44s. I will update this post once I have worked the unit through 50 or so fills. This appears to be a much improved PCP compressor over the Nomad I. I have high confidence that it will run reliably over the long haul. If you've been waiting, throw away that hand pump and do yourself a favor. Get a Nomad II.

    Things I liked:

    Very nice carrying case. Unit appears well made. Beats a hand pump!

    Things I would have changed:

    So far I see nothing that I would change.

    What others should know:

    With a hand pump I can fill my Marauder in about 30 - 45 minutes. With this pump it is about 4.5 minutes.

  • 1.0 1.0

    1.0 1.0

    Things I liked:

    It worked great for about one month (owned for 2 months but moved across state so didn't use for one of those months). I only fill the 480 cc FX tanks from about 180 to 250 BAR, and only one tank at a time. The electronics are still working and the pump runs but makes a different noise now and it jiggles on it's feet more than it used to. The burst disk looked fine but I replaced it anyway, to no avail. Called the AV phone number, went straight to voicemail stating that all staff were busy so I left my email and phone number just as requested. No word back so took a look at the parts bag that came with and found o-rings about the circumference of the pump so tore into that. O-rings are fine. I've probably voided the warranty so this is probably going into the trash can soon. Not happy at all.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make it last longer than one month.

    What others should know:

    So many other 5 star ratings that I must have gotten a bad one.

    I'm an above the knee amputee, I use to pump, lost my leg in November. Got out of the Hospital in January, the Nomad II, is a life saver. My hand pumping days are done.

    Things I liked:

    Very well built, solid. Worked great as soon as I figured out the connector I needed to use with my rifle. One call to Pyramid Tech and it worked exactly as advertised. If I shoot down to the bottom of my rifles range only about a three minute refill time, better than I expected.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing worked as advertised.

    What others should know:

    If you need another connector to your gun make sure you know how to hook it up. I did not do it right the first time and had no luck. Like I said, Pyramid Tech had me going in less than 5 minutes (including wait time on the phone)

    Things I liked:

    It is great to have my own air source. The first one that was sent had a problem with the ON/OFF switch. Pyramyd did a great job and the return was no problem. The second compressor works like a champ. It fills my small Air Venturi tank from 2700 to 3200 psi in about 5 minutes.

    Things I liked:

    This works Very nice; and, it's easy to use. ..very nice fit and finish.. I've used this on 120v and 12v - Extremely handy!!

    Things I would have changed:

    ..can't think of anything...

    What others should know:

    When using the 12v cable (attached to the car battery Directly) it's best to start the engine. You do NOT want a low-voltage condition to happen while the compressor is under load! Low voltage is known to burn out electric motors MUCH worse than too much voltage. I noticed a distinct rise in the speed of the pump after starting the engine. It was still pumping up the line when I started the engine.

    A longer hose to reach my guns. And a lower price lol

    What others should know:

    I got mine using affirm with 12 monthly payments ,money was tight and buying it for one price over 12 payments made it so much easier to afford.So thanks PA for having a choice I could use and get what I wanted.

  • 5.0 5.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    I`m a nu-bee to air gunning & found thru videos & articles that the air venturi nomad 2 compressor was just what I needed to get started pushing pellets out the bbl. of my umarex gauntlet. I`m 72 & did not wont to tackle a hand pump & also didn't want to invest $1300.00 to $3500.00 for a compressor just to get started. I`m very pleased w/the workmanship ; operation ; simplicity ; spare parts & informative manual . Its really a GREAT package & I love the option of running it off your truck battery . Can`t go wrong!!! Also , two thumbs up for the tec. department @ Pyramyd Air for helping me sort thru what I needed in additional equipment to get up & running and nothing I didn't need.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing so far, but I`ve only had it a couple weeks w/no issues.

    What others should know:

    I cant say enough GOOD things about Pyramyd Air. You don't find to many companies these days that make you feel special & not just another pain in the butt phone call. They take there time helping you & answering all your questions and explaining things a beginning air gunner might not understand. You`ll get my business.

    Things I liked:

    Best thing since sliced bread. Beats a hand pump all day. I saw the price of the air bottles; having to take them somewhere to have them filled; this purchase was the answer. It makes you independent. Very easy to operate and fills the Hatsan Flash QE PCP Air Rifle in 6 to 9 minutes. If I do decide to get a air bottle I can fill it with this compressor.

    Things I would have changed:

    The charging hose needs to be 36" long at least.

    What others should know:

    If you don't have the money to purchase this great air compressor, and you have good credit I suggest you try using AFFIRM when you checkout. They will finance your purchase as long as year, with monthly payments. Read about them and consider the options. They helped me and I'm very happy with my purchase.

    Things I liked:

    Compact Surprisingly quiet Oiled (oil-free= higher wear) Fills fairly quickly

    Things I would have changed:

    Cost, while it is mostly likely the best on the market ita 200 bucks more than the competition. If they could come down to sub 600 or even to the 550 range it would excellent value for the money.

    What others should know:

    It does come with one female 1/8th pipe thread to male foster fitting. It's shown in pictures but not otherwise mentioned.

    This is a huge step up from air pump and scuba tank. Simple to operate, fast fill, portable, air fill gauge accurate, fast fill time. I use it in my shop and plug into Tacoma outlet away from home.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing.

    What others should know:

    If shooting PCP, highly recommend.
