It takes me approximately 30 seconds to throw a pump handle on either my Stroker or Typhoon and turn down the lpr. No tools required.

A used Stroker might be a good bet. They cost a little less than a Typhoon or Blazer and the convertable pump option is $70 at PPS.

Autococker-type designs (Autocockers, Fockers, Trilogies, Blazers and Typhoons) are the only ones that can really be converted at all, at least in a method where you could switch back and forth. There have been a few pump conversion kits for blowbacks (I've seen Spyder and 98C pump kits, but they're pretty hackneyed), but that's about it.

My vote goes to a Typhoon or Blazer with a pump kit. Either one will serve you equally well, so pick the one you like the looks of more. Plus, if you pick up a dropout charger and a Noxx springfeed, you can make it work in virtually every kind of play!

MAYV, and INCYN...... Ssshhhhhhhhhhhhhuuuuushhhhhhhhhhh !

Ive already been considering a NASTY , but i think ive talked myself out of it as there not welcome on all fields,and im trying to be a one gun person,

Im thinkin a Blazer sounds good ( ive been leering at them on the pps site)

But now ive heard the word Stroker, so i guess i need to have a look at them.
Is the wieght a significant diff betwen the 2 ?


Also do PPS markers mate well w/a Qloader ( I dont beleive ive seen one setup w/a Q) and if so would VERT or r/l feed work btr? In ur opions.

Marauder i DO have a knox springfeed,, mmmmmmmm ,yummyyyy, ...How many shots might one get out of a Blazer on 12gr ?

A Stroker is just a brass Sheridan pump gun converted by PPS to semi-



So it's basically like a Typhoon, but with a shorter hammer throw. I love mine. It's not real light but neither am I.

Is it a space or cost issue? If cost, note that you can get an autococker and a sniper for the price of a palmers' gun, or less.

With a pump Mag, all you have to do is remove the wave spring from behind the bolt. You can leave the pump handle and guts in and blow the minds of unsuspecting muppets.
With a ULE body, you can go from a SC feed, and a direct feed also, but you need an Angel threaded stick feed like the one from an Illusion.

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

well you can also leave a blazer pump on in semi mode, but careful for your fingers.

Probably about the same as any other Sheridan-based design-20 good shots, then another 10 or so decent ones.
