Follow instructions. Pump slow and deliberate.

nothingThings I would have changed:
don't buy itWhat others should know:
first gauge was shattered. Second was cracked. Tried a plug and still no pressure. A real waste of money. Haven't even been able to use my Prod....total junk of pump and service. Asked for a refund and was given an email to get a new gauge....Never buying from Pyramid Air again.
works as advertised. Feels heavy duty. Very few parts to assemble (foot pads).Things I would have changed:
Would probably give it a longer hose. If you are filling an air gun direct you will likely be placing the gun on the ground since there is not much room for any other place to set it while you pump. Longer hoses are easy to come by and so I will just couple this pump to another hose when I need more length.What others should know:
So far a great pump and hoping to get a long service life from it.
nothingThings I would have changed:
Test it before shippingjust wontWhat others should know:
just wont work
Portability it's easier to carry than a compressor and no power source needed because we don't always shoot where there is access to AC or DC powerThings I would have changed:
The whip length is very short at 12 inches you need to be uncomfortably close to the gun you have really no choice but to put the gun sideways on the ground( depending on fill port location) some guns might be more difficultWhat others should know:
Overall a good pump you can buy a hose extension fairly cheap, it's a bit of a workout pumping 3000psi but hey it will probably build up your pecs and that should be expected from a high pressure hand pump
I like that it came free with the purchase of my armada. I only weight about 150-160lbs n I was able to fill my gun from 0psi to 3000 psi in about 7-8 minutes with very lil effort. I filled quickly consistent air pressure with every pump and was way worth the $0 it cost me.Things I would have changed:
I wouldve made a locking mechanism to hold the pump from expanding when being picked up or transported but not really a big deal at all. I wouldve liked to see the bleeder valve and pump hose on the same side so that all delicate pieces were on one side.What others should know:
The pump does what it is supposed to do: charge a Marauder with compressed air up to 3000 PSI. It takes about 50 pumps to fill the Marauder from 2200 PSI to 3000PSI. I don't let mine go below 2000.Things I would have changed:
The gauge readings on the pump do not match the readings on the Marauder. The pump readings are between 500 and 800 PSI below the readings on the gun. I would prefer if the pump lasted longer and had a more trustworthy gauge. It is still usable since I only trust the gun's gauge and do not want to over fill it.What others should know:
My previous Benjamin pump, built in 2014, lasted 7 years and propelled about 2,000 shots through my Marauder before it died. I estimate that to be about 40 full fillings over the years. I started to take the pump apart but convinced myself it would be safer to just replace it. The pump has 3 stages and operates up to 3600 PSI. I didn't want to mess with that. (My wife was happy with the decision.) :-) This is good exercise! Take your time filling you gun. Only pump for a few minutes, 10 -15 pumps, and then let it cool down so it, AND you, do not overheat and melt down.
It came as a freebie with the rifle.Things I would have changed:
This pump was a lemon from the outset with a severe air leak at the brass bushing that sits between the pump and hose. At first glance I assumed the o-ring had been damaged or was missing when assembled at the factory (or it was a return?). I figured easy fix: remove bushing, replace o-ring, and done. With the first gentle pressure on the wrench, the brass bushing sheared off. On closer inspection, it was apparent the brass fitting had been over-tightened, deformed, and fractured. Unable to get the sheared off bushing removed, and since it was a freebie, into the trash it went.What others should know:
I'm sure its a fine pump -- if you get one that hasn't been damaged before you get it.
It works as advertised.Things I would have changed:
Put the hose and pressure gauge on the same side.What others should know:
Get ready for a workout. It does the job, do not pump fast, and hold for a second at the top and bottom of each stroke.
It pumps pretty easily and only takes a few minutes to get my Marauder to 2700psi.Things I would have changed:
Needs a longer hose.What others should know:
I'm older so I pump slower. Probably be quicker for a younger person.
Easy to useThings I would have changed:
Make it easier for taller peopleWhat others should know:
Very easy to use. Will definitely help you get your exercise inThings I would have changed:
Seems to be well made and has foam grips on the handles to provide a more comfortable an better gripThings I would have changed:
I would like the handle and grips to be longer or the grips without the rib at the end With my build I grip the handle at the ends and after fill up my PCP the outside of my palms hurt from the outer rib on the grip. One other thing is that I believe they should have included a plastic cap to cover the female Foster fitting to keep dirt and other contaminates out of the connector when not in use.What others should know:
Unless your really into working out Id save you money and get a bottle to fill your tank. From filling my PCP it takes about 25 strokes (up & down Is one stroke) to fill the line and pump. Then it takes another 25 strokes to pressure the tank to about 2200 psi. Due to my age and shape its time fro a break. Then another 25 strokes to get the pressure up to about 2700 psi. Now time for another break. Now another break to get it to 3000 psi. Now another break as I have to put all my weight on the pump handle to push it all the way down and even kind of bounce on it to get the handle all the way down. And this is starting from 2000 psi. If the pressure gets down to 1700os 1800 psi add about another 25-35 strokes. If I would have known this I would've gotten the tank first. Now with all that being said its still good to have a hand pump in case you tank runs out of air and /or you compressor fails.
I love the speed in which I can fill my Benjamin Marauder.Things I would have changed:
A longer hose, higher quality gauge.What others should know:
Be prepared for some exercise. 2500 psi to 3000 psi it's fairly challenging. I actually love the work out.
Filled my PCP 5 times, to 3000 PSI, on day one. No issues so far.Things I would have changed:
Longer hose. Practically need to be standing on top of your gun. Cheap gauge. It wiggles around like it is from a gumball machine. I do not trust it one bit Larger base. Need a little more substance to stand on. Pumping up to 3000 PSI is not easy and having bad posture while doing it is a recipe for a bad time.What others should know:
Be ready for a workout. Getting up to 2k is easy but going up to 3k is tiring. Might be easier with people who are a bit larger than I am but your quads are going to be screaming at you in no time. Probably easier to get a compressor.
Long Term ReliabilityThings I would have changed:
Energy required to pumpWhat others should know:
Comparing this pump to the Hill hand pump (I own both) Hill pump is 30% easier to pump Benjamin takes fewer strokes (approximately 100) to complete a fill Hill pump takes approximately 125 pumps to complete a fill Each of my Benjamin pumps was rebuilt after 7,000 - 9,000 pellets fired Hill pump required rebuild around 5,000 pellets Bottom line - I like both: Hill pump is easier to operate, Benjamin is quicker to fill and will last longer between rebuilds
Connects easily and securely. Pumps up fairly quickly. It gives you a work out when you get past 2500 psi.What others should know:
It will make a great backup for when you air bottle is empty!
It's a good quality built pump.Things I would have changed:
I'm 6 feet tall and weigh 225lbs this pump is so hard to pump the last 500 psi that you'll wish you'd never seen it.What others should know:
Buy a compressor
Appears to be well made. Received well packaged with no damage. Pump appears to operate well so far since I've only I only had to use it a few times.Things I would have changed:
The only issue I had was that one of the two long screws for the handle was mis-threaded or not to spec and would not screw into pump. I had to get a M8 X40mm screw from the hardware store to attach handle. If not for this I would have given this pump a 5-star.
Not muchThings I would have changed:
The bottom base you stand on is too small. Ergonomically it sucks. Your posture is really bad while trying to use the pump. Put a decent gauge on it for Christ's sakes man. Make it in the USA. China makes cheap crap that doesn't work. I wouldn't bitch about it if was priced at $79, but for $200 the damm thing should work right.What others should know:
The air gauge sticks and gives the wrong pressure. There have been many complaints about this from many users. I sent mine back and will try another brand.
Works well does a good jobThings I would have changed:
