The FX 4 stage pump in simple to put together. You just bolt on the the base plate, make short you put the particulate filter in, which is a .177 cleaning felt. So easy to get a replacement. There are washer seals to go between all the meal to metal fittings on the hose. Pumping up your rifle is a bit difficult the first time as the pumps bedding in, but the next time is very straight forward. I have Ankylosing Athritis and I manage fine with the pump.
It takes about 3/4 minutes to pump up a rifle from empty, and about a minutes to top up.
In the long run it is a cost effective way of charging your rifle, and you don't have the hassle of having to refill are get the pump tested as you do with air cylinder. Plus it is worth the little bit of effort you need to pump up the rifle.
