I've recently decided to go looking around for a pump to be messing around with at the end of the day if I don't have enough paint, or maybe even for some full day pump play.

I have pretty much no knowledge aside from the stickies in this forum, which aren't that information rich.

So if someone could explain to me everything I need to know in layman terms that would be awesome, and I also have a few specific questions.

1. Would it be fine if I used my 68/45 ninja on my pump?

2. Where do I find stock class pumps? I only ever see a few open class.

3. How much would a quality pump run me for? I am thinking of having a price limit of $300, but that is flexible.

4. What is the maintenance like on suggestions for markers?

Thanks. :)

I find stock to be cooler looking, but I don't really know the mechanical differences. I will probably go stock.

ok so just sayin but electros are like hunting with a machine gun, semis are like hunting with a bolt action, open class is like hunting with bow and an arrow, stock class is like hunting with a spear.

1. Would it be fine if I used my 68/45 ninja on my pump?

If it's open class or modified stock class(stick feed and tank, or hopper and 12 gram)

2. Where do I find stock class pumps? I only ever see a few open class.

Paintballgateway stocks a few. The phantom is your best bet for a good stock class marker.

3. How much would a quality pump run me for? I am thinking of having a price limit of $300, but that is flexible.

Define quality. CCM's run upwards of $500. You can be in for a nice sniper pump for around $150 or less. A phantom would run $150-$300+. I'd suggest a cheap sniper, probably one you'd build yourself.

4. What is the maintenance like on suggestions for markers?

Depends on the gun. Usually very easy.

Thanks. :)

Saw that quote on MCB :rolleyes:

It's not an operational difference, it's just how you set up your feed and air systems.

stock class u have to reload the most often and yo pretty much always have to rock the gun barrel down to cock the gun, and u have to change 12grams
open class is just like a semi but u have to pump dont use it as an inconvieniant semi though.

1. Would it be fine if I used my 68/45 ninja on my pump?

For open class its fine, although a 13/3000 is a better option but for stock class id be a little much imo


2. Where do I find stock class pumps? I only ever see a few open class.

If you're looking for a phantom (a GREAT option, but mike@cci is coming out with a new gun soon so I would wait for that but (call Mike at 503-554-8095 or email him at cci@phantomonline.com he's an AWESOME dude


3. How much would a quality pump run me for? I am thinking of having a price limit of $300, but that is flexible.

For 300 bucks you could get yourself a pretty nice cocker with a ccm kit, or an upgraded phantom or grey ghost


4. What is the maintenance like on suggestions for markers?

for the most part pump guns are VERY simple and require almost no maintenance, keep the gun clean and put a couple drops of oil in the asa and you should be good

1. Would it be fine if I used my 68/45 ninja on my pump?
68/45 might feel a little big on a pump, considering pumps are very small and light. I'd recommend a 45/45 for a rear air tank. Small enough for pump, but you'll play all day.
2. Where do I find stock class pumps? I only ever see a few open class.
The CCI Phantom, Lapco Grey Ghost are 2 popular stock class markers. You can pick them up from their respective websites, or find some in the BST.
3. How much would a quality pump run me for? I am thinking of having a price limit of $300, but that is flexible.
200-300 will get you a nice phantom, or grey ghost, and depending on how much money you're willing to spend, you can personalize them to basically anything you want.
4. What is the maintenance like on suggestions for markers?
Pumps = Stupid easy. Especially nelson valved guns like the Phantom or GG.
Thanks. :)


If you're looking for a stock class gun, I would recommend a Phantom with an air tank. (Modified Stock Class) None of that stupid hassle with 12ies, but still with the difficulty/fun of stock class.

VSC is my personal favorite setup for a phantom, because you can hold the vertical air like you would a reg on any normal marker, and bottom lining it is easier.

How do I tell if it is modified? If it has an ASA?

Edit: Would this be a good buy?

An ASA with a Tank on it is modified. And no, that's a horrible deal.

For starting out, I recommend Mod SC, A tank with 10 round tubes, but if you have the money and you like the uber lightweight factor on the gun than you can go stock class for around $30. And the same goes for a regular feedneck if you don't even like Mod stock class.

These are both Modified stock class. Stick feed + Bulk air tank. IMO it's the funnest way to play pump. The tight/light setup of stock class without all the hassle of 12ies!

On the VSC, which stand for VerticalStockClass, the tank either screws straight into the asa, like in the second picture, or you get an ASA, a remote line adapter, some macroline fittings and hose, and rig it up like in the first picture. Either way it's dead easy and you don't have to mod anything.

I'm backing this one up, pinnacle is sick. I've ordered items about 4 different times and nothings ever gone wrong. He has sweet deals too once in a while.
I just went to the site to see if there was a sale right now and the site is down for repairs. Fail!
