Azodin Pump v. Traccer v. Hammer 7 v. Cheap Sniper?

I want to give pump a try but I'm not really willing to spend more than 150 to try it. What would give me the best experience? I already have a 13ci and pump hopper from a trade a few years back.

I personally started out with the Azodin and loved it. I later "upgraded" to the sniper for the features (clamping feed neck, auto trigger, barrel kit, stock class, on/off Asa) but probably like the shot of the Azodin just as good.

A cheap pump to get would be the tippmann sl 68 pump. It's loud, but get's the job done!

That's not a sniper, that's a Nelson design. Snipers are cocker based (or rather the cocker is sniper based)

Go with the sniper. Higher quality and more parts available.

In my opinion, the Azodin Pump is going to be your best option to break into pump. It's going to be more familiar to service, going to have a pump handle that's easier to grab, and it's centerfeed meaning it'll feel more at home than Trracer as well as being able to use a hopper meaning you won't have to adapt to limited ammo play at the same time.

Now, I'm just suggesting the Azodin because it's new. If you have no issue with buying used I'd say to find yourself an older half or mid blocked sniper of some sorts, maybe even a pump mag if you can find one for $150.

I would vote the Trracer myself. I love it. It's the cheapest option, very very reliable, consistent, and extremely customizable. You can switch from open to stock class very easily. It's also a beast, you can beat it up and not clean it and it'll keep on working.

I recommend the kaos pump. Very smooth pump stroke. Also customizable. Nice shot. Pick one up

Sniper. The Hammer7 and Trracer feel cheap compared to any Sniper I've ever shot. I've owned all but the Azodin.

Just look for a Sniper with a nice frame (single trigger in my opinion.)
