First off, sorry if this has been posted before I couldn't find any threads. Anyway I've been really considering getting a pump, mostly cause I'm spending too much on paint and I just want to do something different. My question is what pump do you think would be good for me to start off with? I would like an open class and my price range is 200-300. I want it to have a smooth pump stroke and have nice grips. Efficiency and sound signature arnt a concern. Also, would I be able to use 50 round pods in my full sized pack? I plan on using an APP 50 round hopper so I obviously can't use full size pods. Thanks in advance.

I can't help with the pod part, but paintball gateway has 03 superstock right now for $190.

I say start off with a 100 hopper that way you don't have to buy a new pod pack

A primo would also do the trick, that's what I run.

Its not like your pack is going to explode if you touch it with a 50 round pod.I've done it before,and it works,but you would be better off buying an actual 50 round pod pack if you really like pump.Or using a sportshot,as I do,and use normal pods with it.

 

As for what pump,I say pick up a used prostock or superstock off of Mcarterbrown,ebay,or here if you get lucky.Really,just get any autococker that is post-2k,and slap a cheap pump kit on it.If you end up loving pump then trick the shit out of it.If not,you can easily sell it and get your money back.

What would make a post 2k be better than a pre 2k? Also thanks for the advice guys.

The pre 2k cockers have smaller diameter front screws and usually had a slip fit velocity adjester rather than the threaded AVG "disc" that see now.

There is also a difference in bolt/back block length and some dimensions are different in the trigger groups.

 

Go post and you wont have to worry about anything.


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

Is a slip fit velocity adjuster one where you can adjust the velocity without tools?
