Question Autococker pump conversion

I was wondering if anyone here has had experience with converting an Autococker to a pump, and if so, if it's worth it. The kit is roughly $20-40 depending on which one I get, and I have been thinking about picking up an Invert Mini as my primary gun. Thoughts or suggestions are appreciated!

If you already have an Autococker, then yes, it would be worth it. If you don't, then just purchase a Trilogy pump. They're $100 and the resale value stays the same.

2k4 prostock, in case you haven't seen. Have fun converting it. I would suggest to change the frame for a single trigger, but that's my preference. Good luck

Awesome, man. You have been a HUGE help already. Any suggestions on where to start looking for the single trigger?

Also, any downsides to making this a pump?

Once you make it pump it's a pain to turn it back into an autococker. But why would you want to turn it back anyway.

I have the same gun, look in sig and you can get some ideas. good luck, have fun.

I love your gun, BiggsFX! that actually gives me some ideas of what I can do with mine. But you're right, pumps seem more fun. Never used one before, but then again, at one point I had never used a paintball gun period.

Look at paintballgateway.com

Also, the 04 prostock is a good marker. I would start to think about buying a CP reg. Just for a reliable regulator and better consistency.

There aren't any downsides to be honest. I can't think of one, other than if you want to convert it back to an autococker, but I don't know anyone who would want to even do that.

Would you suggest a CP over the WGP ones?

Yes. CP make really good regulators, and people all over recommend them all the time.

Meh....doesn't matter honestly. CCM probably makes the best pump parts in the paintball industry, but anything will do. Click HERE for pump kits. All of these will fit your 2k4 prostock, so whatever is in your budget will do fine.

I found this: CCM Autotrigger Not sure why it's so expensive, or what exactly the "autotrigger" is.

autotrigger allows you to hold the trigger down and pump, and it will fire automatically on each pump.

That kit costs what it does because it includes a CCM pump kit, CCM frame, CCM autotrigger, and all hardware.

Dang! Well I bought the autotrigger kit, and the CP regulator. Any suggestions on what else I should pick up?

I don't know if a CP regulator can take a steel macroline, so you're probably going to have to buy some plastic macroline, (2) 90 degree fittings and a new ASA.

Unless someone can say otherwise, maybe the steel line can go into the CP reg. Try it out before buying the stuff above^
