It should handle 4, but I usually go with 3 to be safe.

We could really benefit from some proper information about air tanks' characteristics like stock operating pressure, volume, failure pressure, and emptying efficiency. Maybe one day i or someone else will get the chance to do that.

I usually pump mine until it feels right. You can sort of feel the change in pressure and just know. If something comes out of the end, you've succeeded. You can keep pumping after that, but it's usually not as good. I think the number required is going to depend on the quality of the pumps and the grip you use.

On the other hand, the guy who posted before me used the word 'fuck' a lot so he probably knows what he's talking about.

This is such a silly question. I only ever install one pump per blaster. More just seems like a waste, since you can only use one at a time.

Its how many times should you pump the blaster not how many pumps to install.

You can pump two shafts at the same time with the right technique. It's a bit more tricky to get them both to go off at the same time, but you can still get close. If you need more advice on the two shaft method, I think Matt's mum can answer any further question - she is a total pro.

No, I don't think so. You can definitely use two pumps if you wanted.

I mean I started the thread and I just wanted to know how many pumps from a magstrike pump was safe for a 2k.
