Sniper II is a cocker w/ a pump in place of the front pneumatics.
You could likely grab one for the $100 range.
...and for some reason they seem to hold their value better than a "full" cocker.

Thank you,

What is cheap to you?
What do you want it to do (what are you going to do with it)?

Based on those two answers, this will help us guide you into a solid direction.

Id stick with a nice nelson or clone. As many others have recommended a Trracer or Maverick can be had for cheap...then if find you like those you can upgrade to a Phantom and eventually a nice carter.

Admeech, if you're serious about getting into playing and you're on a budget then yeah, pump can save you a fair amount of money. But nothing in this life is free. If you can't afford to buy a basic marker then you won't be able to afford to play either.

If you're serious about the pump deal then you can get a nice one for cheap here...
Crapload of SL-68 II's

Otherwise I can enthusiastically recomend a Piranha R6. Ebay is full of R6 packages with all you need to play for a lowly $70. And as I said, if you can't find that sort of money then you won't be able to afford to play at the fields either.

I'll second the R6, that's what got me into the sport. Now I'm starting to play pump, and will reccomend both the SL-68 II and the Maverick (again). I'd go with the Maverick if you want to upgrade your gun as you go though, since they are a little easier to mod than the SLs. If, however, you want a gun that you can just pick up and go with, get the SL. It's built like a tank and will probably never die if you take care of it.

I wouldnt sugest a traccer. With the back-bottle setup, I dont think that it sets a comfortable platform for a new pumper.

You want something that is ether 12 gram orintated or bottom-line setup. As mentioned, the Sl-68 II is a great beginner gun. Very reliable and tough.
