I received a copy of this manual from Drew Fritts...

Page 3:

The Powermaster 760 is a BB Repeater, Self-cocking, Pneu-
matic pump action Rifle with a BB reservoir capacity of over
180 BBs plus an integral magazine with 18 BB capacity. It is
also designed for shooting caliber .177 Crosman Super Pells
as a single shot rifle. Low Power and High Power shooting is
attainable with a unique, easy, fast short stroke, high com-
pression pump system. Two to three pumps is all that is
necessary for accurate shooting at velocities of standard BB
Rifles. NOTE: For target shooting, 3 pumps are recom-
mended. Do not attempt to shoot with less than 2 pumps.
When longer distance and greater power are necessary for
field shooting, the gun may be pumped up to 25 times.

I have a copy of this manual in pdf and will send as an email attachment upon request.

Hmmmm, now that is interesting. There have been numerous threads on this forum about "how many times can I pump this". I thought the self cocking models were the worst ones to over-pump as they could possibly lock-up and then were not able to be fired until days or weeks later when the air bled off. Thanks for the PDF info.
