I want to get a gravity feed CA CO2 pump marker. No preference on AT. I was thinking a Sniper, as I have not tried one yet, so this is what I am down to choosing between.

New Rex M2, CCM Pump kit $170
Other knockoff Cocker, CCM kit (recommendations?)
WGP Outkast Sniper (ugly grip frame, don't really want to support WGP) $250
Another Phantom (I would have to wait though, as I doubt I would get a black one) $220
AMP Illusion (Dual rods :drool: I've heard good things) $240 ish

I don't buy used markers, which limits my options, but I am not going to change that. Don't take it personally if you are trying to sell one.


So what do you suggest?



MODS: this is here because I want more opinions than just the pump forum, move it if you feel like it, but I prefer it here.

Outkast. Phantoms aren't that great IMO, and the M2 isn't a very good cocker.

Find an old pre 2k right feed, and ccm it.


Or, get a mini orracle.

Why outkast? Phantoms are amazing to me, why don't you agree? M2 isn't a great cocker, but it's gonna cost me $100 less than the Outkast, which is not only uglier, but an evil company.



Palmer's is right out, I will not spend $300+bottomline kit, just can't afford it

first one is used, which I don't do, second is expensive. I would do just the body of a cocker, but I am in too much of a rush to build it straight up

Why did you ask what to get then? It seems like you want another phantom.

You're not going to get a cheap cocker that either isn't used or made by WGP.

I want another pump. I am actually leaning most towards the Illusion right now, which is essentially a cocker and not made by WGP...

That is tempting though

Isn't Action Markers out of business? Where are you getting ahold of an Illy?

It sounds like you want an Illusion.
