I did a bit of reading too and found that some of the vintage air guns, not canes, were rated at around 800 psi.
My estimate was 3000psi however this was only a guess. The 6000psi was from an unknown guy on an air gun site. The truth of the matter is we will never know. When sold they recommended a certain number of strokes with the supplied pump to take it to full charge.
Found this on modern air rifles
