And food your original question, the gun I would avoid is the one that will cost you so much that you can no longer afford to play for multiple weeks or even months. Figure out what your budget is, then start figuring out what style of play you enjoy the most. The best pumps for you will become more and more obvious.

PRO/CON of a halfblock

PRO-
-no need for a bevertail (tournys are supposed to require one if you have a full body cocker)
-no backblock to smack yourself with
-saves weight (not much, but still some)

CON-
-exposed slot (jcurtt is workin on a new sled to cover the slot)
-raw aluminum where the milling is
-$65+ depending on who does it for ya


Trillys are GREAT pumps
-I had a basic trilly sport that shot 295 +/- 1 all day, with the ivg 1 turn from flush, light stroke, comfy wgp handle, and for less than $100, you cant beat it

i've built 10+ trilly pumps, they have all been amazing, just because they are not a "true" or "compatable" or "normal" (or whatever you want to call the redheaded step child that is the trilly) autococker doesnt make them bad


in today's tourny pump world, open class auto triggered autocockers rule the field, force feed hoppers, big air tanks, high rates of fire (7+ bps lol)... most people avoid nelson based guns and stock class setups

with that being said... The Ten. Trueballers just won the PSP Pump series, and they all rock 10rd tubes instead of 100/120 round pods

Really what is with all the cocker snobs bashing the trilogy? I assume they have never owned one and since it doesn't say ccm on it its "junk". I've never met a trilogy (pump) owner who didn't love it.

I have a phantom now and what would be the next step up ? To me for some reason it feels weird to shoot without having it against my shoulder like a typical electric gun. I'm wondering if a t stock would fix that.

a tstock could help
i use a 45/45 tank on a bottomline asa for my phantom
i've seen guys use a tank in an asa with it off/empty then still run 12gms up front too

Sounds like you might just need to use a longer tank or maybe just an extender unless you want to go the Tstock direction. My CCM is awesome! I have the 6.5 but I have also used the Empire Sniper and its a great marker and comes with a barrel kit.

Nope. Never heard of them before starting our own team almost two years ago.

most people THINK they are garbage
-They were cast, not billet
-They use spyder springs, not cocker
-They dont look like the standard cocker
-They had the 3way and LPR built into the body
-Only some were threaded feednecks

But honestly, none of that matters!
They shoot +/-3 with HPA, light underbore and pumped!
You can have the body threaded for a CCM threaded feedneck
They like Co2

People hate because people hate....

I've built up some killer cool trillies that have sold for $250/$350 because they are a good gun!

Halfblocked, CCM Threaded, Pumped


Midblocked, CCM Threaded, Dual Detents Heavily Milled, 2k+ Pump Kit Adapter, Custom Forgrip




Midblocked, CCM Threaded, Dual Detent, Custom FX Ano, Pumped


Faux Blocked, Custom Ano, Mini'd


Midblocked, Midgeted, Ego Feedneck, Pumped, Polished, Bazooka Ano


They all made solid little shooters, except the purple one i sold before i could finish it!

in my opinion...

Feedneck, unless you get the fancy trilly with a threaded feedneck
Trigger frame, if you dont like the stock 1.5 finger
ASA, on/off's always make life better

Dont need to be reg'd, as long as you have HPA

yes, if its the feedneck that is cast onto the gun, the best way to do a low pro clamping neck is machining it off
