Depends on what you want to do.
Phantom has few aftermarket parts.
Sniper 2 can be up graded to an autococker, and downgraded back to a pump. Not sure how long it takes, but that alone has some advantages.

All that you listed are good choices. Phantoms are probably the lightest of the group. Palmers makes excellent pumps as well. The brass barrels from palmers are outstanding. Of course the Palmers are going to be a little slower than a phantom. But that usally is not a big factor in pump play. Phantoms are super smooth and have an auto trigger. Hold the trigger and keep pumping for a high ROF when needed. Only effective when using Gravity feed. Phantoms have a little more "upgrading" path, or aftermarket choices.

One other gun you should consider is the Action Markers Illusion. They are very nice pumps. And can easily be switched from Stock class play to gravity feed.


Enjoy the world of pump play. :)

If you're looking to play regular pump & Stock Class, look into the Phantom. It's modular, and you can swap it around easily. So is the Illusion too, but that's another story. Phantoms are also factory customisiable, you can't get a lot of aftermarket pieces for them, but there's enough out there to make your gun personal.

Sniper 2 isn't bad, no autotrigger and it's easy to make into a semi if you want.

Palmer's work is fantastic, I can't say anyhting bad about it. You pay for quality, but he's one of hte best in the buisness.

Overall, I guess it's a matter of what you're looking for. Phantoms are the pump of choice, and the "elitists" get the cooler stuff like Buzzards and Desert Ducks (don't ask...)

Actually,pumps don't suck.They are generally more reliable than electros or semis,and it takes more skill to play effectively with them.Try it some time,don't just jump to conclusions.
As for the topic of the thread,PPS is really the way to go if you have the cash.

Hmm...Stock class pumps are THE smallest profile marker there is, they're light weight, don't need batteries, easy to maintain, force you to learn how to aim and shoot rather than spray and pray, a 9oz tank lasts several days play, if it has an auto trigger you can get a decent ROF....
and they suck how?

I own and regularly use a Palmer Super Stocker.

Has to be some of the best games I have ever played! And yes, I do play speedball as well as woods with it! In fact I am much more effective with it on the speedball field!

To me, the Phantom is just to light. Takes to long for me to aim and shoot effectivly. With the weight of the brass on the Super Stocker it is a point and shoot gun. But this is all a personal taste issue. Any of the higher quality pump gun you listed will serve you very well and bring the level of your game up rapidly!

One of the best things I found was the use of a shoulder stock mounted to the bottom of the trigger frame. Keeps you stable and keeps the gun right in front of your face.

There is no feeling like leaning out and popping a spacegunner in the mask while he is pounding your bunker and the grass behind you! They have learned to hate me in the snake! (picture on my brigade stats page)

And the last, if not best thing about pump...shooting 38 balls in five hours...one 12 gram... 12 kills! That day cost me $2.10 for paint and air. I can blow that in two minutes using my GZ Intimidator!

Yeah...pump is great!

Playing with a pump is a joy both in the woods and on the speedball court.

There are a lot of good pumps on the market if you don't mind searching out the older stuff.
Of the markers currently being marketed, Phantoms are about the best value for the money.
The Illusion is good with a buttery smooth pump stroke. The Sniper has the advantage of easily converting to semi, and folks like Chipleys machine make lotsa nice upgrades for it (plus their own J-2 pump).
And now with Lapco re-releasing the Grey Ghost, and a run of the classic Desert Ducks being produced the choice for quality pumps is better than ever.

If you want in on the biggest pump gathering since they invented semi's, look for Pump Pandemonium 2 "Pirates Revenge" happening in August at EMR in PA.

Never shot anything I liked as much as a custom build Sniper...
