Pretty sure that they're all about the same

Because of the ergonomics of pumping those kind of pressures, and the strength of materials involved, they are all going to be about the same length and diameter, and use pretty much the same materials. That means about the same size and weight.

You could make one, buy cutting down a standard pump,

the disadvantages would be that it would require more pumps to reach the same pressure, and you'd be pumping in some scrunched up position, where you couldn't get a lot of physical advantage.

How many pumps are you willing to put in? What's your charge pressure?

Decades ago, crosman sold a pump designed to recharge their bulk co2 guns, it was basically the pump unit from a pump up rifle.

Realistically, you'd be limited to something around 2000 psi with that sort of setup (leveraged single stage pump)...but it would be nice and compact...wink.gif

yeah-I don't have that small of an air chamber- but I was thinking of the evanix pistol- which has a small air chamber. The more I think about it-The more I lean towards the fx independence weekend hunting trips or day hikes.

The lightest pumps were that I know of were for the Brocock cartridges

Brocock cartridges looked like a firearm round with a case and bullet. However, the case was an individual air tank and valve. A pellet was inserted and then the cartridge was pumped up and loaded into the gun similar to a firearm. The cartridges tended to leak and there were some legality issues with them in Europe/England.

Rick from airgunweb did a review of a gun like that the MAC35 Bolt Action Cartridge Airgun - pretty cool concept-see the video on you tube. Its just like the Brocock you describe. Also I like the guns with the removable air tanks-like the carbon fiber ones- You can just carry a few extra for a day in the woods.
