Help me pick something!
I've been looking at all sorts of pump guns but have finally decided to stick to autococker pumps/snipers and stay with play open class play. What Im have trouble on is figuring out what gun/body to use as my ‚Äúbase.‚ÄĚ Iím into modding and tinkering and the thought of building a gun from the ground up seems not only challenging but fun. So for my body/internals (I call this my ‚Äúbase‚ÄĚ as in my mind everything else is built off of the body/internals) I have limited it down to three main choices:
Old Autocockers (WGP) A body like this but Vert. Feed
This is my first choice, and would really like to stick it out and get one of these. The simplicity of body and design really appeal to me, and as a whole I plan to build a very simple/clean sniper. Iím aiming to get either a vertical feed (I gotta have a vertical feed) body or complete gun. How much would this cost? I hear that older autocockers are pretty cheap these days. I do have some concerns about this path as I was hoping to get some more information on:
- What are the significant changes in these guns from one year to another?
- How reliable are they
- Are spare parts hard to come by?
- They can run off of HPA correct? (just to make sure)
- How hard is it to find one of these vert feed bodies?
- Can the feed neck be changed on these older bodies?
A back up option as I would like to stick with an older autococker (I would pick the cheaper of the two)
Same as the above, this is a back up option as I would like to stick with an older autococker (I would pick the cheaper of the two)
A Piece-by-Piece Plan
I'm going to go up front and state that I plan on half blocking this gun! Keep that in mind if you make any advice please
This is the most difficult part as I donít really know how to go about purchasing all of this. Namely I donít know if I should purchase an entire gun and then only use the parts that I wanna use, or to buy it all piece by piece? (Please answer!!!) Another big concern is that if I end up buying just a body to start with, I dont know what internals are required, and are specific/different internals required if the gun is half blocked?
I would really just like a cheap, simple pump kit. Smoothness and all that jazz dosent really worry meÖ.I just want the gun to shoot. Any recommendations?
I would like to have a single trigger trame, but once again, I donít really wanna spend a whole lot of money on one. I know there are things such as hinge and sliding trigger frames (what type of advantages do these offer?) but I would just like a simple ol single trigger frameÖ.does such a thing exist? Any recommendations?
I would like to go all out here and get something nice. Iím considering Palmers. Any recommendations?
Cheapest one I can find, unless there is something I should know
I already have one
I will worry about this later.
Thats pretty much as much of a plan as I have right now. Please post any information or advice, as I really need some
