Building a Pump!

Just as the title says, building me a pump. I chose to go with a wgp 2k2 body. I just want a simple and clean looking pump, nothing crazy, as this is going to be my first pump getting back into the pump game after many years. I will continue to update this post as I go along, for anyone interested in my build. Already have a few parts, and waiting for the rest to arrive. Should have an update soon. So till then here is a teaser, this is what I am starting out with. Let me know what you think and if you have any questions.

Here she is!

Nice, good solid body. I have a 2k3 myself and have been playing around with the idea of throwing a pump kit on it. Let us know what parts you go with!

Looks like a great start.

What lower internals are you going to use?

Thanks! I would say if you do not have a pump already, then for the fun of it I would throw a pump kit on it. I love playing pump! There is nothing like going on the field knowing you are going to be out gunned, and having to out play and out think your opponent, and then succeeding. Its more of a hunt and the feeling, rush and excitement is like nothing else.

I am going to use a check it lower kit with a different cocking rod than the one that came with it. Only for color reasons and nothing else.

Here is my full parts list. Going with black, silver, polished silver, stainless, and nickel colorway on all the parts.

Parts list as follows. Let me know if I missed anything.

Empire carbon tip super freak barrel (from my empire axe pro le)
Slice pump kit
Cp detent
Check it derlin bolt (minus bolt pin for color reasons)
Wgp bolt pin
Check lower tube internal kit (minus cocking rod for color reasons)
Contract killer cocking rod
Cp regulator
Wgp beaver tail
Wgp hinge frame
1911 grips
Cp rail
Cp asa

Like I said nothing fancy, just simple and clean. The only thing I am worried about is if the silver, polished silver, Stainless, and nickel are going to look good together.

You may also want to think about a maddman spring kit.

Helps get rid of the farts.

If you haven't already gotten the check it lower tube, the CCM internals are GREAT pump guts.

Heavy hammer, with well balanced springs.

I may do that later, I don't know. I am not to worried about the fart noise at the moment. Thanks for the tip though. I already have the check it lower internals, for this build, but I do plan on building me another pump in the near future, and will go with ccm lower internals on that build. I plan on my second build being really nice. Well, I guess what I think is really nice.

I am always a sucker for a blue cocker of any kind pump, mech, and electro. I have had many a frankin cockers over the years. You get what you want and it shoots the way you want it to. I am interested on your opinion of the new slice kits. I ended up going ccm on my last build due to availability on his site a while back. I need more patience in my old age. I take it the jewel sticker came with the pump?

Thanks man! I think the blue looks super nice also. You are so right! That's why I love cockers, you can just do what ever you want to them, and make it how you want it. As far as the slice kit goes, I'd say get one. I love mine. The stroke is smooth, no doubt. On par with ccm imho. The construction is top notch, feels super solid. The grooves on the sides and the indention on the front of the pump handle for you index finger to sit (although you can't see it in the pic, I can take a pic of it if you would like) make a great comfy fit for my hand. Also looks great. For a pump kit you could not ask for more. Will buy another for my next build. Recommend to all. Oh and yes, the jewel came on the body when I bought it.

I would stay away from CP detents. get a rebuildable check it detent, yes it is more but the CP one broke on me in less than 10 mins.

I'll keep that in mind, although mine is fine. Shot it the first day I put it together and nothing happened to my detent. I did not put it through a full day of play yet, so we shall see. Thanks for the tip though.

If you overtighten them they can obscure the breech and smash into the bolt.

FYI - 10 year old CP detent - been in three different markers - finally lost the ball two weeks ago - ordered another Check-it to replace - stuffed the SS ball into the CP and lightly tapped the rim to hold it in place - looks and feels good... time will tell.

Thanks for all the insight guys, really appreciate it. Like I said my detent is fine. I have also had cp detents in other guns in the past and they have worked fine also. I don't know what the other guy is talking about, maybe he had a fluke.
