What pump should I buy?

I am a complete noob to pump/stock class. What should I buy? I tried the Azodin KP and did not like it. I have around a $200 dollar budget. What would you guys recommend? Thanks in advance!

I got a Trilogy and converted it for my first pump. Pretty simple to do and not a bad marker.

T2 from BST or a WPG. Either way, I hope you'll have fun with your gun!

I'd suggest an Empire Trracer. It's cheap ($125 new), you can go stock class really easily, and it's very customizable. It's autococker threaded, has a clamping feedneck, has a low profile, is very low weight, and pretty efficient. It is a little more geared towards woodsball, but it's still pretty awesome for speedsball. That'd be my recommendation.

While I like the Tracer, I think the Hammer 7 might be a better option now. It's about $10 more, but it has both mag-fed and center-feed options out of the box. Admittedly, barrels may be tougher to find for it.

I will look into that one. I am liking the looks of the WGP sniper pump. Have you had any experience with that one?

It's a fantastic platform, and probably the most common on the field today. However, it's generally more costly to get the kind of features you're getting in those other two guns.

I should mention, I prefer to shoot snipers over other types of pumps.

If starting out pump look for cheap wgp cocker/sniper to build off of. Can prob pick up decent setup for $150 or even less. Guns can be bulky and heavy compared to empire tracer and hammer 7. Check out your field and talk to people who have , most will be glad to let you try out.

Welcome to the revolution

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I think I am going to go with the WPG sniper. Looks very good!

The problem with those converted cockers is that they don't have autotriggers. Sometimes they still have double triggers on them. That's my one issue with them, whereas the Trracer and Hammer both have them.

You can put AT on a sniper though. I plan on doing it to mine eventually.

Its very local to me, and i could pick it up for you and probably less than asking price, just trying to keep myself from buying it as i have too many markers as it is.

Also if you did want that one id recommend either a ccm grip frame or slider frame to replace the one on there.

Thanks for the offer bro, but I am going to go with the WGP sniper. Thank you for the offer though!
