If you've worn out other pumps- you owe it to yourself to get a Hill pump -- and stop the cycle of worn out pumps. These pumps are easy to field-strip and quick to reassemble. Airgun writer Tom Gaylord has had a Hill pump for over a decade and has stated on many occasions that it's finest pump he's ever used.

The plastic base is made from a very strong plastic, and I have no worries that it might break.
From 2000psi to 3000psi it takes about 80-100 pumps. I find it very easy to pump. I do take breaks and feel to make sure the pump isn‚€™t getting too warm.
I recommend this to anyone who is first getting into PCP
With the air Venturi.
With this hand pump can I load the cylinder of a weapon type " Walther 1250 Dominator " ?!
I use it to top off my AirForce Condor SS to 3000psi and my Carbon fiber tank to 4500 psi.
Side note: I recently had purchased Benjamin Marauder .25 cal premium pack (with the scope) from them; again at an excellent price, excellent packaging, and now with the MK4 properly working the Marauder is going through it's paces.
All the CONTINUED Very Best!
It takes about 10 - 12 strokes to increase the tank by 100 psi. It's a good workout towards the end as the tank is getting full and each stroke takes a lot more effort. Just be aware that it's not like pumping up a bicycle tire.
I wanted to get into PCP rifle shooting and didn't want to mickey mouse with the with trigger mods, and adding suppression hardware to more pump friendly rifles so I got a regulated Marauder .177 from the Crosman Custom Shop.
Sure, the MRod isn't the most "pump friendly"gun with a ~220cc reservoir, but the Hill MK4 does an excellent job of topping the gun off. The pressure "climb" is non linear, meaning the pumping from 1500 to 2100psi seem to be a bit laborious, but once things get past that it actually fills faster and I'm at 3000psi in no time.
The supplied female foster adapter is perfect for Crosman (and other guns), and they also include a second desiccant pack ans a tube of silicone grease for maintenance. Plus, it comes with a 5 year guarantee, and with any luck I'll live to see it expire.
The bottom line is that I figured if there was one thing that would ruin the entire PCP experience, it would be a crappy pump. Sure, I can't pump my gun up form start to finish in one session, but in the short time it does take me to pump it I manage to get some desperately needed cardio action and the pump gets barely warm to a touch. As an added bonus, the protective cap supplied on the MRod bolt is the perfect size for capping the female foster connector on the pump.
I also use this to fill a Hatsan Barrage (500cc to 250 bar) and it's more time consuming but definitely doable.
I didn't tighten the fittings tight enough at first and they leaked air.
When I tightened up everything worked excellent
This hand pump charges my PCP guns just great. I can fill my Benjamin Armada to 3000 PSI in about 20-25 minutes taking a break every 10 1 5 pumps to keep it cool. It will bring my Dragon Claw dual tank 500 CM tank in about 40-45 minutes.
This pump is the solution for me to charge my guns.
I am shooting in the 1800 to 2500 psig range, so it only takes about 10 minutes to rebuild pressure, including a couple of short rests.
Caveat: If I was shooting a lot, I would go to a compressor or booster, (but would keep the pump). I don't have a dive shop anywhere close, so bottles won't work for me.
For some reason despite the high price paid for the pump it does not include the adapter needed to connect it to a rifle. No idea why the people at Airgun depot would not have this noted on the product page. So I have a new air rifle and a new pump and cannot make use of them without the adapter.
Overall a good pump for not much more than the cheaper alternatives.
Note....I had the Air Venturi pump before this one & the AV could even push air into two different Hatsan rifles!....When disconnected & just pumping to listen to the air, the volume of air pushed thru the AV was tiny compared to the volume of air pushed thru this Hill per pump/stroke.....So save yourselves time & effort and just spend the extra 80 dollars & get this Hill pump!...it's heavier & the moisture filter that comes included is great!!....this pump is tops in quality!
Safe & fun shooting to all!...God bless.
I have been precharging my Glatian .25 QE for the passed 2 day like 3 -4 times a day.
from 150 bar to 200 or 210 bars.
I just shoot 26 rounds two magazines and then pump it back up.
I'ts fun because I know is healthy to put the workout in to it, and I also get to shoot the gun, so I am winning twice.
C'mon Hill pumps you can easily do better.
