For maximum efficiency?


1. Pump up. Count how many pumps.

2. Keep going until you hear a loud "bang".

3. Subtract one pump from the total. Rebuild your air [tank].


There you go.

I put 15-18 pumps in mine with a hornet pump and I have never had any problems. Magstike pumps are not that much bigger then a hornet pump so I think you would be fine with 14-16 pumps.

Also wanted to say that I do not use my titan tank blaster in any wars or shoot anyone with it, it was just a blaster I made for fun and i occasionally shoot some cans with it. Just thought I would put that out there.

I know I've put 35+ pumps into my titan tank with a bike pump on it. Don't hold me to it, but I feel like you could probably go that high if you really wanted to.

Yea, drev is right I just put 20 pumps into mine with a hornet pump and left it for a wile and it has had no issues. Held the pressure and fired as normal.

This is why I use pressure gauges. When you guys want replacement tanks, drop me a line.

That's your safest bet.

Other options:
1.The "if you have to lean on the pump to continue pumping, it's probably going to break" method: when it gets kinda difficult to pump stop pumping. You should get plenty of power out of the tank by that point anyway. (Note: If you have biceps the size of Texas, this method may not work)

2. If you bought a whole titan (not just the tank) it has a goofy little pressure gauge in it. Use it instead of throwing it out. Again, it might not read up to the absolute maximum pressure the tank can hold but if you max out that gauge I think you should still be able to launch a dart plenty far anyway.

I recall the pressure gauge maxing out when the tank was 1/3 full with stock titans. I don't think it will be enough.

Also, pumping a tank 15+ times before it is ready to fire seems like a major design flaw to me. Consider that a larger bore pump will give stronger force feedback on the tank pressure/reduce the max you can pump into it. I don't recall if the stock titan pump was very big, but I remember the magstrike pump being fairly small.

This is what I made with the tank and pump. It is a titan tank with a magstrike pump in a recon shell. It is not ment to be practical or anything, its just for the fun of screwing around with a singled titan.
