It takes 12 pumps to get a strong shot off and side spring load d
There are 3 types of air rifles. Pump, Spring, and CO2. You have a Pump. These work by compressing air into a cylinder at the base of your rifle (where the chamber should be) and releasing it when you hit the trigger out the back of the cylinder. In that is a few Rubber O Ring seals that deteriorate under higher pressure than they are built for (10+ pumps). For the performance to be improved you would need a new O ring from the manufaturer (only if your gun is expensive enough (300+??)(there are some air rifles that are break action with like 40 pounds of break and are spring. subsequently they fire at over 1000 fps up to 1300 or 1700 or something i cant remember, but the require a firearms license or to be bought and delivered to the local police shop and picked up) so if you rifle is expensive enough you can get a new part. If not you can get a new rifle unfortnately and keep that one as a beater. To maintain that gun donnot charge it past 11 Pumps this should prevent further deterioration.
As per the sring is a pain in the as to load your gun, that comes down to how expensive your gun is again. if you get a cheap one they usually have you hold open the chamber. Better models have a reccess inwhich you can rotate a plastic nub from the spring into to lock it down. Other models use clips etc.
My suggestion if you do decide to go get a new one. Buy a break action. You cant overpower them and they are extremely quick to reload. (the constant pressure of a break (same pressure each fire) can help you fire better too).
You could also take the gun apart A LITTLE BIT it is a few simple pieces. GL
