I’m not sniffing corks or anything else. I’ve been around air guns for quite a while now and I’m quite aware of what you get for low prices from China when it comes to compressors. I’m not telling anyone NOT to buy one, I’m pointing out that there are other options besides buying a compressor….like an SCBD tank. A tank is much more portable, costs less on average, and will give about 95% of air gun shooters a years worth of shooting. If you shoot at home most of the time maybe a compressor is for you. You’ve used that “cork sniffing” remark a couple of times. You might want to give it a break.Just to comment that "chinese junk off the internet" is still giving me good service. Here is my amazon history on that.

I have done NOTHING to this thing but change the oil....NOTHING. And if you hang around airgun forums you will find those that own them like them and those that don't like them don't own one, and/or bought a $3000 compressor.
I can only relate my personal experience with the one I bought. I use to wright down the time I used it, little note book sitting on top of the water tank. I quit at roughly 2000 minutes. Or roughly 33 hours. That was about two years ago. Figured it long paid for itself.
On a side note to the OP here, there are a great deal of cork sniffers in the air gun world, it is as bad if not worse then the guitar world.....I think worse. Read everything you can lay fingers on, see what people say on a given gun or whatever, and pay your money and take your chances
