After selling my Phantom 2 years ago, I've decided to get get back into pump. I really enjoyed using my Phantom but I don't think another SC marker would be necessary as I also own a T8.1. My current budget is about 250 and I am looking for an OC marker. I have (almost) no experience with markers like snipers, so how would the smoothness of the pump stroke compare to that of a phantom? Well, anyways I'm looking for a 250 OC marker. I was thinking a used Prostock. What do you guys think?

Snipers in general are going to be capable of smoother, lighter pump strokes than Phantoms. For 250 look for a complete used gun with an aftermarket pump kit such as CCM. You may be able to get certain complete CCM markers for that or not much more, so keep an eye out.

A pump stroke on a sniper is amazing compared to a phantom.

Used, i would look for a clamping feedneck, ccm internals, ccm pump kit and an on off asa. Personally, i like sto bodies, prostocks are common and dont have threaded feednecks.
