How do I build a pump?

For this winter I want to build myself a marker . I was thinking open class phantom but already own a stock-class and want to try something else like a auto-cocker which I have yet to own. Im gonna sell off my TPX and some other low end markers to get some cash.

Autococker seems like a challenge and may be in over my head to build one but maybe a older model?

Do you think this is possible to do with a tighter budget and tips,ideas and where to start? Just looking for something cool that wont depreciate.

Autocockers are no more of a challenge than Phantoms I would say, and I have built both.

Just start hunting the bst for parts you want and then assemble it. You can do it on a budget if youre patient and you accept that you wont have the top of the line parts, or you can spend alot of money. I spent alot of money and am happy with my finished product; I dont ever need another pump.

Then you just have to tune it, which is probably the more challenging part.

If you have any questions Id be happy to help. Good luck!

While the layouts between a phantom/nelson and a sniper/cocker-pump/sheridan are distinct, the principles are the same. There are more parts to a sniper, but that is what makes them easy to modify. If you don't learn anything, what fun is that?

My usual question - bulk CO2, 12g, or HPA?

Buy Autococker, CCM pump kit, slider frame, aftermarket bolt, madman spring kit, clamping feedneck, and you have yourself a solid pump. After that you can tuned it with different reg/valve combos and buy other parts here and there to build it up.

For me, I bought a $45 2004 Prostock body (internals included), a $30 PMP Industries pump kit (very low end), a benchmark single trigger frame (can't remember the price), a $5 direct mount ASA, a $5 backblock and pump arm, and a $25 Evil Detonator regulator. Installed everything, threw a barrel on it, sweetspotted the reg, good to go.

Wow thats the type of prices I am talking about ! Would the BST have bodys/interals and trigger frames for those prices? Im really love the looks of the older 99ish cockers with right side feeds if they have nice anno jobs
