I want to build a pump, a sniper. Im looking to buy a Lightning autococker but I dont know where to buy one. Other body suggestions are welcome as long as theyre relatively inexpensive and readily available

A good place is on the BST's here and on pbnation and mcb. You can find cockers for under $150 and you can slap a pump kit of your choice on it.

Check out the customcockers forum. They've always got a nice selection dedicated to cockers and parts.

or just buy one instead of ruining a perfectly good cocker.... you can buy cocker pumps from paintball gateway for like 180, and i believe they already have check-it valves installed

Or just get something else for a better deal, check-it valves don't offer that much performance over the stock valves IMO.

And putting a pump on a cocker does not ruin it, you can take the front end off and put a pump kit on it 500 times a day, and at the end it will still be an autococker.

I never get wipers, blood is hard to wipe off.

I like autocockers and autococker accessories.

ebay can also have some amazing guns, but usually the price is pretty high

customcockers is an amazing site too

Just gotta pick a budget, and go shopping. MCB has some nice cockers of course, some do end up here, but I'd check customcockers

amazing shit to buy over there

I agree with Mike, ebay has great deals. Just know what you're looking at before you pull the trigger....

Pumping doesn't ruin a cocker, you can easily switch a sniper back to a cocker. The pumps on paintball gateway are a ripoff.

Look used on the forums, or ebay. Best place to find a nice, reasonably priced cocker.

ok "ruin" isn't necessarily the right word, but would somebody say something if you pumped a DC1 or 2? What about a belsales evo x? My point is why pump something hard to find or something that has nice lines? i mean by all means pump a prostock or nightkast...

So pumps can't have nice lines too? They can only be the boring old bodies that nobody cares about?

I still dream of somehow getting a hold of OEFVeteran's DC2 and pumping it. :lol:

Pneumatics can be swapped out and put back on. The dc2 is also my favorite marker of all time if it damaged it in any way, I too would cry.

Pump doesn't ruin cockers in my mind because it can always be swapped back again, but do you know what does? Eblades :angry:
When people drill beautiful autocockers to except an eblade it destroys that cocker forever. The only exception is a bind eblade with no eye holes.

I do have to agree with you. The Eblade sensor is shit.

The eblade sensor works fine... And as long as the person knows what they are doing drilling a body isn't a bad thing in my eyes. But, I also believe that if it came from the factory mech, leave it mech.

As for dc2 pumps, I've seen a couple. They look cool. And the owners were smart enough to keep the factory parts.

As for where to find snipers, customcockers.com/forum is the single best place as prices are the most fair there.

What is worse then drilling for eyes is people who half-block or midblock their nicely milled cockers. While I couldn't care less if you half blocked a prostock, it kills me to see some ugly hack job ruining a nice autococker. Midblocks are better, but most half blocks that aren't from the factory are extremely ugly.

As for buying cockers, Custom Cockers as has been said, mcarterbrown is another good option, and if you're willing to risk it, pbnation can have some good deals, just remember to never gift your payment. My one problem with Custom Cockers is its a smaller site so the options are limited, and while most of the prices are fair, the people who use it tend to deal a lot with the high end, more expensive ones.

Well, if that's your opinion.
But other than my mech VF Tactical, I'd prefer a pump cocker any day.

i agree that half-blocking and mid-blocking bodies are also tampering with beauty... if it has good lines i.e. karnivors and freeflow bodies...
if its a mech or undrilled i wouldn't drill it just to eblade it

i guess i'm a 'cocker purist cause i grew up in the era where cockers were what ruled the field... and i understand the want for devolving cockers into pumps because they feel familiar and are easy to work on and all that... i guess i don't see the point where if i'm going to be slowing my game down i want to shoot something stock class or a hopper fed phantom... but hey thats just me
