Most Desired Pump

Hey guys,

I'm looking to save like $80-100 for the next couple months and purchase a new pump gun. I was wondering what you guys would choose if you had like $300-500 for a nice pump gun. I'm thinking a CCM or something, but I'm not sure what is most desired. What would you all purchase for $400? NIB

-Richie

At the moment, Kingman Hammer 7.

Yep, a $160 half plastic gun.

Why? Because it does something that currently no other pump does. I got open class pumps, I got stock class, what I don't have is a mag fed First Strike compatible pump yet.

Next spring should be fun

It really does not matter what any of us find desirable...

What do YOU (OP) find desirable? What pumps do you like the look of? How do you see your self playing with them? What pumps have you used, like, and want to get?


Don't worry about what others want or think...they are not you.



And I totally want a Hammer 7! I thought I was done with my collection until that came out!

New? That takes CCM guns out of the picture, since they're $650+ new on their site. Another $20 gets you into Empire Sniper territory, though.

I love my pure sniper. Easy to maintain and comes with a barrel kit as well as an auto trigger.

If you want something new in that range, go with the empire sniper. If you're fine with used in that range, go with a CCM or a nice cocker with a ccm kit of some sort.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I think he was referring to his Empire Sniper as opposed to the cocker based pumps that are referred to as "snipers". One is a specific marker name, the other is more like an entire marker platform.

I might be wrong but I believe that "snipers" are autococker based pump guns. Before the autococker you had the wgp sniper, and when they added the pneumatics to the sniper you got the "auto"cocker.

He's probably referring to the color.

I'm a carter machine fan personally, though if you can find an AM Illusion used they are my favorite open class pump.

You are either a nelson fan or sheridan fan. I grew up using nelson pump and mech cockers. I can't stand sheridan pumps because I want them to shoot faster.

I think to answer the question directly; the most desired pump is one that fires. The rest is up to you.

Build a cocker pump from scratch! Fun, and you get to deterimine it's classification (HP/LP, 12g/CA, stock or open class, etc.) as well as customize....just about everything.
