Default Thinking about a pump...

I am thinking about getting a pump and wanted to know what to look for? Where to look? Is it better to get a pump marker or get a regular marker and get a pump kit for it? And as always, COST is an issue...the cheaper the better.

i like my hammer, but the thing that bugs me about it (as with most pumps) is that it doesnt have a ball detent, and the 10rd tubes arent spring loaded. i would look into a cocker pump or build a spyder pump, and throw a pocket hopper on it unless you plan on playing stock class.

I was really looking on eBay earlier and saw a few cheap cockers (under $80) and I was thinking about just getting a pump kit for it...any reccomendations on a kit?

I saw that I just wasn't sure if the integrated 3-way was going to be a problem...but after a little more research I don't think it will be.

As with most pumps? I had a ring detent from a Phantom in my Hammer. Cockers have detents, Phantoms have detents, Buzzards have detents. *shrug*
