Switching to Pump

I've had my G4 for a while but to save money and get better i want to switch pump soon and i like the feel of my trigger on my G4 which has the techt bolt, UL barrel, Vlocity, and a 68/45. I was wondering what pump to start of with or where can i test soon some. I really like the look of the T2 and i could just get a 50 hopper but not really sure about what tank. let me know thanks!

Are you totally set on switching, or do you want to try pump out first? You may find out it's not for everyone. What bore is your UL barrel? The T2 is a very nice pump gun, but if you're concerned about shelling 5-600 bucks for one you could look at an empire sniper or trracer. The tank is a matter of opinion. Your 68 may feel fine to you.

I'm a little surprised you haven't seen any pumps in Southern California. Look around, chances are someone out there will let you try it out.

Funny I found myself doing the same thing,I have been playing since 1995 and find myself at public fields as opposed to our own outlaw/woodsball fields where ramping and 300 fps are the norm.
Just bought a Spyder(Kingman) Hammer 7and so far im really impressed,yet to make a full day of play but my backyard tests have been great and at $140 brand new figured i couldnt go wrong ,heres my brief review at M Carter brown,theres a ton of info and reviews

If you just want to try it out, see if you like it, I'd suggest the Empire Trracer. It's lightweight, very customizable, autotrigger, and it's autococker threaded, so there's a bazillion barrels for it. I freaking love mine. I'd also pick up an APP 50 round hopper and a few pods or stock class tubes. You'll be fine with your 68, however if you want to I'd suggest a 13ci tank. All told, that's $300 brand new, with a few upgrades like a bottomline kit and a few barrels/backs. It'd be around $150ish used.

Try talking to your local paintball store, some of them will let you try guns out before you buy. just make sure to buy from them after or else they will give you the stink eye next time you come in with your gun.

I know Extreme Pros in Garden Grove does this often.

Now that its after christmas, I think I might get a cheap pump to start out with, and I've been hearing about the Trracer , Azodin pump , and maybe a cheap phantom, and a converted auto cocker (i don't really know what that means aha). I was thinking i could buy a used cheap one and then later resell it and buy a better one or just keep upgrading. Sorry if this sounds confusing aha, and whats the hit man mod? Thanks a lot! Im going to force myself to like pump

Also, my UL barrel is .684 so ill probably need to get a barrel kit soon.

Go for a cheap phantom you can upgrade it and set it up anyway you want stock class, open class,12 grams, constant air. also building your own cocker is fun. converting means taking the cockers semi ability and replacing it with a pump rod and pump and a hitman mod is a plate that comes down off the pump so you can pump keeping a lower profile some people find it more ergonomic if you have any other questions pm me

DYE also makes a .680 bore for the UL barrel. I've been using one since they came out sometime last year, makes my favorite barrel even better!

Well, a new DYE bore is maybe $60 at the most, so while they are pricey parts, you don't have to carry whole extra barrel kit.

Dye has a barrel case they've sold for several years called the Boombox. It's maybe $20 or something, but it works great for my barrels. There are other companies with cases out there too, I just can't think of any off-hand that aren't attached to gearbags.

I saw this on ebay and I have a sewing machine, yes I use it, so I kind of copied the idea and made myself a couple of these for all of my barrels and barrel backs (6 in total), $14.76 total you can't go wrong, unless you have a sewing machine!
