Personally, I really don't see the benefit of 'multi-pump-up' airguns.......unless you're a million miles from a dive shop, and you don't have a stirrup pump.

I mean.....could you see springers being so popular if you had to cock them 8-12 times for each shot!!

That's all American's had for Year's only Pump-Up's .22 Pellet Gun's or .22 Rim-Fire, Used .22RF were always in the Gun Store for $40/56GBP Single shot .22RF were much Less. Pump-Up Pellet Guns Killed un-tolled  Million's of Gray Squirrel's & Rabbit's over Here in no limit Land.....Franky

The only pump up's we had here were Sharp Innova or Ace, Benjy's or Crosman......which were crap. I know they were crap coz I had a 766. After nosily pumping 12 strokes into it, you were then in no physical condition to shoot properly....that's if the quarry hadn't scarpered by then anyway....and even if it hadn't, accuracy was woeful to say the best.

The only upside to pump-ups that we could see was their ability to be left cocked for long periods....something which springer owners did want to do for fear of weakening the mainsprings, and reducing power even further.

Apparently it was the Japanese Sharp Innova that prompted the 12ftlb limit into being......as BSA were pissed off that they could do big power where as their own airguns were struggling to do much over 10ftlbs, and thought they might lose sales......so asked the Government for a power cap.

From what I understand the decision was never even discussed or voted-on in Parliament, the law was simply undemocratically amended by a Civil Servant....which sorta questions the legality of it!! >:( >:(

Two of these new pumpers are here , in my town , the only ones in the country. Apparently, they are not going to be sold in this country.
