so i'm looking around at different pumps and have a few questions for those more knowledgeable than i

what kind of barrel threads do phantoms have? how much does it cost to set up various configurations? i really like the VSC from what i've seen, but of course i'll want to experiment.

i've seen a bunch of cocker pumps. are they any good? how much would it cost, and how much time would it take, to buy a cocker and a pump kit, then switch it to pump? would i be able to switch back and forth as i wanted, or is it a fairly permanent conversion? i haven't seen any for sale without regs and bottomline, is it possible to just stick a 12g changer or 4oz co2 tank where the reg goes and play?

what other pump markers should i be looking at?

Acme Threads unique to Phantoms

You can get a basic VSC set up for about $250, of course the price could be less or much more if you get lots of different parts **Cough** like me :)

i've seen a bunch of cocker pumps. are they any good??

Cocker pumps, AKA Snipers are great guns. I have 2 and love them.

how much would it cost, and how much time would it take, to buy a cocker and a pump kit, then switch it to pump?

You can get pump kits starting around $50 and go up from there.

would i be able to switch back and forth as i wanted, or is it a fairly permanent conversion?

You can switch back and forth as much as you like it is not hard to do at all.

i haven't seen any for sale without regs and bottomline, is it possible to just stick a 12g changer or 4oz co2 tank where the reg goes and play?

You can but you will need to re-spring the gun to work with unregulated C02

I've got two Trilogy pumps now one that I bought and one that I won and both are great. Good bang for the buck and probably under $100.

I would say go with Wevo. They have some good prices and can get you your tubes with speed caps on them.
