Hey im new to pump and am wondering what pump gun i should get. I have done quite a bite of research and am thinking about a phantom or sterling stp. The things i dont like about the phantom is how you have to adjust the velocity and how the velocity is setup during game it become lose and starts to shoot erratically. The sterling.. i dont know to much about. Im wondering which one is better and i want to play open class if that help any.

IMO, if you want to play open class, do not get a phantom. Open class is what I do and there are tons of options.

The azodin kp pump is a very good beginner pump.

Check it has a nice little mini pump for around $180 I think.

I have a 2005 Prostock "sniper II" and it has a ccm pump kit. I don't think you can get those new anymore.

If you want one of the coolest and lightest pump strokes ever, check out the ccm pumps. I think I speak for most pumpers when I say CCM makes some of, if not the best pump markers out there.

Yea thats also something that bothered me. I heard the pump stroke on the phantom wasnt a very smooth either. but i will check it out thanks for the help.

I thought about the Azodin kp but i heard the the gun sometimes makes a "fart" noise similar to when a tippman is low on air.. and personally when that happens the noise annoys the hell out me so i dont think i want to mess with that.

Most pump guns have that fart sound. It's something you get used to. I have never personally shot the azodin.

What's your budget, may I ask?

Check out the check it pump guns. Or stay on top of the bst forums.

If you buy used, you can get something better.

I looked at the check its. So far the only thing i dont really like is the extreme shininess and the chrome on it.. just seems like it would stand out quite a bit.

No problem. Just make sure you are smart and safe about it. I'm assuming you have some online buying experience?

Well if your ever weary about trading with people, I'd be more than willing to be the middle man for you guys. That way, the guy doesn't get your money until you have the gun, or vise versa.
Hey baby, wanna come over to myspace so i can twitter your yahoo till I google all over your facebook?

Don't trust Flo. He's our forum scam artist. He's been trying to convince everyone he's a real person but we all know he's a figment of his own imagination.


Seriously though I have both a Phantom and a Sterling STP. Personally I find the STP very heavy. I definitely prefer my phantom.

As for erratic velocity on a Phantom. I haven't had any problems. There's a specific way to set up the nylon set screw in the Tuned Port Compensator (TPC) so it maintains it's consistency. Another reason for velocity problems is that the TPC might be turned out too much causing it to be loose or unseated.

I've been considering selling the Sterling for a bit now. Not because I don't like it, but the wife wants her own Phantom.

ohh yea flo is a sneaky one. Yea i think im going to stick with a open class phantom. So hopefully i can squeeze the desired setup in for around 250 also i would mainly use hpa would that work well with the phantom. I heard they were designed with CO2 in mind thats why im ask.. also how hard would it be to paint after already having in adonized?
