Lightest Pump ?

Hello, I would like to know what would be the lightest pump marker, I'd be using, at the minimum, SL 50/4500, and a Stock class feed. Also try not to suggest a Phantom, that is more of a last resort because I'd like to have a pump with a very light (or lighter then a Phantom) pump stroke.

I'd like to have the lightest set up possible because I am tired of my 7 pound set-up right now. I have an Empire Axe, 48/3000, and Rotor.

Price is not of concern as long as it's not like $1,200+

Also, would building my own cocker pump be lighter then the pumps out right now ?

Any help is appreciated

Nelsons won't have as nice of a pump stroke as Sheridens. Plain and simple.

As for the lightest? Nelson based is your answer.

I own an MVP and a PRP.

PRP is the smallest and lightest pump I own. It's smaller than my Gargoyle (essentially a phantom) by a lot. It's tiny. Makes my J12 look gigantic. Like the Cricket gun from MIB.

Look at your comment. Back to mine. Back to yours NOW BACK TO MINE. Sadly, it isn't mine. But if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate crap it could LOOK like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through the comments, finding the ones that your comment could look like. Back at mine, what is it? It's a highly effective counter-troll. Look again, MY COMMENT IS NOW DIAMONDS.

If it were me, I would get a Inception FLE body and build around that. Thin CCM 45 frame, Deadlywinds barrel, ect...

The above setup would still be heavier than a PRP, or most open class Nelsons for that matter. A better pump? Perhaps. But not lighter.

My MVP was just slightly lighter than my T2. The pump stroke is not as light in the MVP. You might check out the CCI Revolution. The pump stroke is a lot nicer than the Phantom. I thought it was pretty light, but not sure how much it weighs.

Otherwise, I agree with Murz. A mid-block fle build might be your best bet.

This is pretty light with a very nice pump stroke. I can put it on the scale tomorrow.

The pump stroke on the revolution is as good, and I think better, than the ccm deluxe pump kits I have. That said there are very few of them in the wild and thus are rare to see for sale used. And new ones are as much as an s6.

I wouldn't reccomend a revolution unless you already like the phantom and at that point know you want a revolution.


Cocker bodys are heavy. You could try finding a mini cocker but it won't shave off that much weight.
If you want a light pump, single tube is the way to go.

If you run a Under cocking kit and polish the internals the Phantom can be butter smooth. It will always be Nelson valve stiff but you can get them very smooth with use or a good polish.

If your going to run a Stock class feed go with a small tank. 13ci or you want to get crazy you can get SpirAir compressed air tank. Or a small CO2 tank. No need to carry all that air capacity. When Most stock class packs hold around 150rounds.

Tank and hoppers add the most weight. If you don't want to go with a Phantom You can save weight with better matching your air capacity to what you will be carrying in paint.

As for the lightest setup. Backbottle SC phantom with the M16 grip and micro over barrel has to be the lightest full setup.
