Pump mags are far more unique and require more work, they're more of a custom build unlike the T2.

 

With a pump mag you gotta have a rail milled for the pump rod and usually the body too, depending on the body you choose. Plus the pump kit itself, with the wave spring. With mags you can really make them your own with all the different rails, bodys, frames, valves, etc...

 

So basically, if you want a fun project where you can really make it your own, go with the mag... if you want something that's already done and less of a project, get the t2.

 

they'll both shoot good, That's a given.

The T2 will be more efficient than a pump mag, but a pump mag is way cooler, way more fun to build, and can be totally unique. You can really make a mag into anything you want, while a T2 will look like almost every other T2 out there.

 

I loved my pump mag when I had it. It had a stainless steel body customized with a 10 round stick feed, and a bucket changer, a nice stock, it was gorgeous. Looked phenomenally better than any T2 I've ever seen. And in all of 30 seconds I could put on a different body, an ASA and have an open class pump.

Pump mags feel different. Its the smoothest easiest pump stroke I'v ever felt. Its like nothing then a little force for the very last part. 

 

I'v only farted around with a T2 but it felt pretty nice.  


What?! I'm all out of powdered toast?!

Automags are one of the most perfect of mech semi's.

Putting a pump on one is pretty much crippling it ~ like cutting a leg off a racehorse.

 

That being said, I own two of them.  :tup:

I should say I own two of the pump kits, One stays on a Classic 'Mag, the other gets swapped on & off a Sydarm (it won't fit the holster with the pump on it)

 

I find Pump 'Mags to be finicky, everything has to be set up "just so" or it'll have issues.

Once it's set up right it has the lightest of pump strokes out of anything on the market.

 

I don't own a T2, but I have used a couple and was very impressed by the performance.

 

Between the two (in my limited experience) I would say the 'Mag is smoother & faster to pump and as others have pointed out, a nice piece of eye candy.

But the T2 is more reliable and can run on lower pressure, plus it's easier to get parts if you need to repair or rebuild.

Original AutoMag pump kits are scarce, if anything goes wrong with it you may spend considerable time trying to track down replacement parts.
