Pump for pump pegs

Hi, I'm after a pump for some pegs spaced 11.5", so just over 29cm from tip to tip.
I have found a Zefal ATB, Lapize and 800 advertised as having a length of 300mm, would this be 300mm "fully compressed" or just "closed"?
If its 300mm fully compressed, I could probably squeeze it in, if its just closed, it probably wont stay in.

Anyone know of any other pumps which would fit?

Someone in C&V said there was a thread here about cutting a pump down to fit, but I cant find it. Anyone know?

Thanks.

I cut a standard cheapo pump to fit my Raleigh 20's pegs. I cut the front end because the other end has a thread in it. I glued the front plug bit back in after separating it from the cut off bit.
