You have a lot of options in that budget. First I recommend that you keep borrowing various pumps to ensure you still like pump and to see what fits best in your hands.

There's tons of off the shelf options such as Azodin, Trracer, Hammer 7. Or, you could buy a used pump. Or, build your own sniper by converting a cocker by stripping the pneu's and adding a pump kit. There's lot of thread on sniper building. That's what I recommend. Feel's great, shoots awesome and uber customizeable.

$150-250?

If you're interested in stock class at all, get a Phantom.

You'll have a seriously difficult time getting a better pump gun in that price range.

This if you're going to play SC pump phantom is the cats behind especially in your price range. If you want to play OC I'd grab a sniper only real stipulation I would put on it is that it has a CCM pump kit as they are the smoothest out there. If you REALLY start liking OC a fully CCM'd or ordered from CCM pump will be the smoothest most efficient gun you'll ever shoot. I know I can get some crazy shot counts off my CCM'd reflex. If you're not sure which way to go and you can find one an AM-P Illusion is a great marker. I own one set up for SC with a 15rd feed and a bucket changer but it can easily take an angel threaded feedneck and a bottomline and be OC and it's very similar in pump stroke to a sniper

Hit the pump section in the BST. Lurk for at least a week (don't just buy the first gun that strikes your fancy). There are a ton of guns out there in your price range. It's all about what you like, and what suits you ergonomically and aesthetically.

Phantoms are hard to beat for simplicity & efficacy. Here's one that Titus has for sale, at the top of your price range, but it's a good bit of gun for the money. There are plenty of simpler ones out there on the BST for less.

Phantoms are great guns and offer alot of versitility but are light. Too light for some people.

I prefer a Sniper ( Pump Cocker) as I can use the same barrels as my other guns, It has enough heft to provide a stable shooting platform ( my opinion) and is also customizable.
I can also convert between semi and pump pretty easily.

I am not cooridinated enough for stock class. Sometimes that "Shoot, Rock, Cock" thing falls out of sequence.
