From first coming onto the scene with their Quick Coupler System, a system that allowed airgunners to easily change fill connectors from a snap-fit hose coupling, Best-Fittings are now undisputedly the ‘one-stop shop’ for a PCP air rifle owner’s needs in relation to charging equipment. The reason for mentioning that is because in the relatively short space of time that they’ve been trading, the company now has a humungous and incredibly comprehensive selection of all manner of ‘kit’.
One of the company’s more recent products is the Slim Jim ‘Gas-Ram’ Pump. Answering the problem of many Theoben ‘rammers’ and Weihrauch HW90 owners, the pump can be used to ‘top-up’ or ‘re-set’ the ‘gas-ram’ to keep the rifle running at peak performance. The kit includes a single arm ‘hand pump’, a 450mm length of Micro-bore hose with an anti-kink spring, plus the connector hose and screw thread ‘QD’ fill adaptor. To use the pump, you first unscrew the bleed screw found at the very rear of the compression cylinder and attach the threaded adaptor. This is then attached to the ‘QD’ fill hose, so that you can pump in the required amount of air. An important factor to take into consideration is after use, check the rifle’s power output over a chronograph, so that you’re not running your air rifle over the 12ft/lb legal limit.
