I want to get a new OC pump, I am running a psychoballistics Lightning with a ANS pump kit on it right now, but want to upgrade. Right now I am in between to guns, the Empire Sniper and the Sanchez Machine SM-1.
The SM-1 would be cheaper, at 385 because I already have my own barrel
Also is it worth it for the pro edition of the empire sniper or is it a waste of money.

I personally don't like the look or feel of the Empire Sniper. You get a lot of accessories, but the gun itself isn't as nice, in my opinion. I'd rather have the Sanchez, or a used CCM S6.5. Personally. Better made product, smoother, better anodizing, made in the USA. That's just my opinion though. A lot of people like the Empire Sniper cause it comes with a lot and you don't have to set much of anything up. Easy, simple, Empire.

Don't you also need a reg, asa, grips and macroline / fittings with the SM-1
I think with all that totaled up the ES is cheaper then the SM-1

The Sanchez is $330. You can put a nice reg and ASA and a lurker barrel on there for about $450. They are around the same price in the end.

i already have reg, grips and barrel that i can move from my old cocker pump until i get my own parts for it, so im leaning towards SM-1

Sm-1 look better in my opinion. you don't see many people with an sm-1, whereas empire snipers are EVERYWHERE

I love my sm-1. I was also between it and a sniper (Or a t2...but thats just a whole nother leve) and I dont regret my decision at all. the pump stroke is nice and smooth and it feels good in the hands. It also turns heads cause alot of people dont know much about them at all.

I think I am going to get the sm1. When I get it I think I am going to get an eigenbarrel, cp reg and Trinity easy on off (Cuz it's cheap) is there anything you would recommend over those things at the same or similar price
