You have two main options for open class pumps. Sniper based (stacked tube) or Nelson based (inline)
For sniper based on a budget New you have basically only one option the Azodine Kaos pump. Witch is a smooth good regulated pump at a decent price. It has cocker threads and a clamping feed neck. It's a great basic pump but lacks an Auto trigger feature ya get with Nelsons and higher end sniper based stuff like Empires sniper and CCM stuff. Used you have lots of good options like used trilogy pumps and WGP snipers and Pump converted Autocockers.
Personally I have always prefered Nelson based and on a budget you have many more options newand used. The best of the bunch would likely be a vertical feed bottom line CCI Phantom. But at around the $100mark there are decent options in the TIPPMANN and EMPIRE TRRACER. Both those have some limits. The TRRACER is good has a autococker barrel but the bolt only last for maybe 20 cases were you will need to contact Empire and they will send you a new one free. The Tippmann is great durable and will last forever But there is really no upgrades for it and no barrels, so no way to under bore to prevent roll outs (easily fixed with the tape mod).
Now most nelsons wont have as smooth a pump stroke. But doo offer auto trigger (hold trigger and pump to fire). Witch helps when transferring from semi play.
Personally I shoot a Tippmann SL-68II. it's not fancy or as nice as a Phantom or some sniper based stuff. But it's built to last and it just fits perfect in my hands. I used to have a phantom and though I miss it the Tippmann just feels better to me in my hands and cost half what a basic phantom would run.
