So I've been looking at the Empire Sniper for a while and decided that I do indeed want one. In fact, I want a pink one.
While shopping around for one I noticed that Paintball Gateway has a so-called Pro version: http://paintballgate...npupagund4.html

The Pro version includes these extra parts:
- Stainless Hollowed Pump Handle Center Guide Rod
- High Flow Valve Guide Body
- Lightened Valve Spring
- Lightened Main Hammer Spring
- White Delrin Bolt
- Shallow Vertical ASA Port Plug

I'm not all too familiar with the Sniper to be honest, so I'm wondering if these upgrades are worth the extra cost.

honwstly it would just be like getting more spare parts for 15 bucks more.

If you have the extra 15 bucks,go ahead and get it.Its just a few little things,not some game changing upgrade.Like Jelly said.

I think I know what extra parts it comes with, the bolt would probably make the pump stroke a little smoother because you're not dragging it accross an o-ring. With that being said I would get it.

with the added valve chamber size with the hollowed guide rod and a high flow valve and lighter springs it will make the pump stroke lighter and it should be a little more quiet, delrin bolt will make the pump stroke a little smoother.
