I'm sure you'll be happy with your choice. I have a similar kit on my Bob Long and it performs just fine.

Sorry to bring this back up, but I've run across a problem. The cocking rod won't thread into my back block; I think it's different threading. I guess this means I need a new back block?

The kit came in the mail today and it feels pretty decent. The pump handle is much heavier than I expected it to be.

I think you mean the pump arm. The cocking rod screws into the hammer. Anyways that's weird I'd figure the pump arm with the kit is misthreaded perhaps. I'd try using the stock arm from the stock pneus if you have them

That's what I'm going to try. The rod threads into the pump handle , but wont' go into the back block.

Edit:

the pneu rod is too short to work with the pump kit

Strangely, the silver rod threads into the pump handle just fine, as well as the back block. I'm not really sure what the issue is. The black rod won't thread into the frame screw holes either, and those should be the same threading, right?

That looks exactly like the pump arm on my kit. Mine threaded in just fine. If you compare the threads on each pump arm, do they appear to be identical? I suppose it's possible you may have gotten a defective one. However, I've never heard of that happening before.

After some investigation, I realized they were both the same thread size, but that the black rod was cut deeper. I lightly sanded the threads down to remove and annodizing, and very slowly forced the black rod into the back block. After a few complete times in an out, things are working better and I've got a pump marker! The silver rod still works as well, and isn't loose either.

Congrats! I love mine and I'm sure you will too.

I can't wait to use it this weekend at the zombie game at PBX. Hopefully It's shooting right. I don't want to spend half an hour at the chrono.

Start at what, 350psi on my HPR, and then adjust the back spring from there?

Depending on the gun, I'd probably start around 400. Also, make sure you have a good match for your barrel - rollouts suck.

I got a DW barrel and full freak kit set, I should be good to go. It kinda seems like overkill for a pump, but I guess that's half the fun, right?
