Limited Budget Pump Upgrades to BT Tracer

Ok, just purchased the Empire BT Trracer for 125. I have the option to get a 13/3000 HPA for it or TechT's 6 Piece iFit Kit. Which do you think would best improve my experience with the gun? Thanks


IF you have ANY other recommendations on what I should do with the gun please let me know.

I'm still waiting on my Trracer on preorder from ANS... pretty annoyed with them by now.

I have, however, used my friend's Trracer. I noticed that snap shooting was pretty difficult with the tank in its stock position. If you play on non-woodsball fields such as speedball or hyperball fields, a bottomline kit would be my first choice.

The barrel is absolutely the way to go. Co2 or a larger tank will work for now, use the barrel kit to keep your shots consistent!

Second the bottomline with a nice on/off.

Then after that, the barrel:
Option One: a Tightstick (http://pumppb.com/index.php/topic,2188.0.html)
Option Two: Lurker Eigenbarrel (http://www.lurkerpb.com/barrels/the-eigenbarrel/)
Option Three: pick up a cheap freak kit, or if you're lucky, a cheap Deadlywind, which requires Freak Inserts.

I personally don't like the TechT, mostly for the fact I don't think it's a long enough control bore.

Lastly, the tank. I recommend a 13/3000 if you want fast and light.
I had a Trracer with a bottomline on/off, Lapco .682, Ninja 13/3000 and a Dye Locklid APP hopper. That thing shot darts, and was super light. That's my personally recommended setup, doesn't mean it's the best though.

I'll toss another recommendation for bottom line, then barrel kit. My Trracer runs just fine on CO2, and is amazingly consistant on it. My son had mine out in 40 weather, unregulated CO2, getting +/-1 fps all day a couple weeks ago. Tough to beat that.

Just bought the Lapco Tightstick barrel, matte. It looks awesome.
