Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
3 years
Products Used:
Tippmann A5, Semi-Auto (very effective and accurate in CQB)
Spyder MR1 (fast to fire for a Mech gun)
Autococker Tactical Trilogy (no. 2 next to the Automag for the fastest mech gun)
Marker Setup: Tippmann A-5 Flatline, Semi-Auto, with pen-spring mod.
'04 Black Prostock with ACP Delrin Bolt, Orracle backblock and WGP Pump Conversion kit
Strengths: Playing pump improves your paintball skills, what else is there to say.
Weaknesses: If you love firepower, pump is not for you.
Review: I bought a black 2004 Prostock that has been converted to pump. I bought this marker last fall, off for $160 (they got good deals.) Dry-fired this wonderful machine of war and one of the first impressions was how quiet this marker was, it was less noisy dry-firing than my Phantom (which I sold a few months back to pay for school books.) I had sold my Autococker Trilogy Tactical too, so when fall came I was eager to get a good backup marker, one of my friends was getting into pump paintball and suggested I buy a Sniper II setup since I was familiar with Autocockers. With the Whisper barrel on this bad boy, it is so quiet that you'll only hear the shell of the paintballs you shoot break, in a intense fire-fight, I run virtually silent since the Electro's drown out the small noise of my Sniper II. It also came with a two-piece barrel, which is decent and has fair accuracy. Pump paintball guns are more accurate than their Semi-Auto counterparts, but unless you know how to harness that accuracy and put it to use, this is useless. I consume less paint and gas, so I have a lighter load and both my back and wallet are alot more happier now. Pump Paintball teaches you to be a better sportsman and teaches you what the rifle creed teaches the Marines, it's not how many rounds you shoot that matter, it's your well-aimed shots that count!
Conclusion: Anyone that is looking for a challenge in paintball ought to consider buying a pump paintball marker. Yes you will get looks from the pot-headed kid with the $1000 Angel like "I'll totally pwn you!" but remember, it's the well-aimed shots.
